Green Smoothies | I’m Lovin’ It
Happy New Year!! I hope 2014 is off to a happy start. Have you set any goals for the new year? I’m still thinking mine thru…..but I have decided to do something good for me. I’m on a green smoothie kick!
A few months ago I discovered SimpleGreenSmoothies.com. I had never had a green smoothie before, and to be honest, they didn’t sound all that exciting to me, but I was super intrigued after reading thru the Simple Green Smoothies site, so I signed up for their newsletter.
Before the holidays I was starting to feel really run down, all the time……no energy. A few weeks ago I remembered reading about how green smoothies can help you with energy, and the Simple Green Smoothies site was FULL of lots of green smoothie recipes, then…..as if they were reading my mind, I received an email with 5 recipes for green smoothies AND a shopping list of ingredients! They made it so easy for me, I couldn’t say no!
I know it’s so cliche to say “I’m going to eat healthy” or “I want to lose weight” for new years, but I’m not going to do this, not expecting to lose weight – I’m doing this to feel better.
WITH SIMPLE GREEN SMOOTHIES BY YOUR SIDE, GET READY TO BOOST YOUR ENERGY, LOSE WEIGHT EFFORTLESSLY AND MAKE HEALTHY EATING A LIFESTYLE— NOT A DIET.
That line right there sold me! Each recipe they sent me, makes 2 servings – so I headed to the store with my list, and if you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen what I came home with! the shopping list made it so effortless! After I got home I did a little prep work, to make sure my ingredients didn’t go bad, and to make sure I never had an excuse not to have my green smoothie each day!
Jen and Jadah, the masterminds behind SimpleGreenSmoothies, have a few tips for Green Smoothie prep for busy people.
You can cut and measure each of your smoothie recipes, and place them in a resealable freezer bag, without the liquids. Then mark the bag with the name of the recipe and what you need to add when you are ready to blend!
They lay out all of the details about how to freeze your green smoothie ingredients here. Be sure to read the comments too, they are fabulous about answering questions…..so don’t be afraid to ask them if you have a question, even if it’s been asked a million times, they will answer YOUR question!
They have a 30-Day Challenge a few times a year, and of course, one started on Jan 1. So far, I’m in for 10 days, that’s what I stocked up for.
If you’re a fan of green smoothies, and have a favorite recipes, I’d love for you to share it in the comments!
