I like smoothies.... convenient and easy, not to mention a yummy way to sneak in the green stuff I don't like to eat. Especially when you have a personal blender like this one (Tribest Personal Blender)... no extra dishes, its easy peasy. While I try to plan things around vegetables lately... I am sure I still lack in getting enough green stuff. It has just never been habit to eat it and I don't partiularly like the taste. My solution to this problem is Amazing Grass - its a bunch of my favorite *eyeroll* greens made into a powder. I have it in capsule form too, but I hate swallowing pills so I avoid those. Anyway, the only way I can manage to take this stuff and not hate it is through smoothies.
My problem is that I always make the same smoothie - frozen berries, banana, orange juice, a bit of yogurt, my amazing grass, and then maybe some vanilla hemp protein powder if I need it. So I need new smoothie ideas.... I am a little berry-ed out ;)
Oh, the best part of this whole post?? I had a good week this week. I got to the gym 3 times (2 cardio, 1 body pump class) and will be hitting it later tonight as well. It seems like something kicked into gear cause I am down 5 lbs for the week... rock on til next time!
