Green Smoothie Challenge (10 day recap)

17 Jun

Has it really been 10 days? Wow, this green smoothie challenge isn’t as hard as I thought, I actually really enjoy it!

Basically, I’ve been drinking green smoothies or green juices for breakfast every morning for the last 10 days.


  • Energy level is about the same as a regular day.
  • Hunger level has been slighty increased  on days that I didn’t finish my smoothie because it was chunky or just didn’t taste good.
  • I need a new blender 🙂
  • Knowing exactly what I’m going to eat for breakfast saves me time, money, and stress.
  • Frozen spinach RULES!

That’s about it, I mean, I figured this would be a struggle but it’s actually not hard at all so I am going to keep going.

Today was a good day for a picnic

Or at least just eating picnic-type food anyway

Sesame bagel w/ vegan cream cheese, giant tomato slice, cucumber, and spouts (which I spouted myself!) with a pear.

Today I did some baking:

more espresso fudge brownies

more chocolate chip cookies!


Too bad it’s almost time for me to go to work, I was really enjoying this!

    I just started having green smoothies and I was surprised that I actually like them! I don’t know if I could do it every day, and I never really noticed a change in my energy on the days that I do have them. They did make me realize that I need a new blender too!

    Yumm I love smoothies! I usually have them for breakfast, although the past couple of days I’ve been having greek yogurt 🙂

    Mmmm, smoothies are AWESOME–I had one today, but sadly, no green in it 😦

    Yay for sprouting your own sprouts! 😀
    Seeing those brownies reminded me that I haven’t had brownies in like, a year. The last time I made them for myself was for grad and that was last year around this time. I don’t know how I’ve lived. I kind of want to try to make a raw version without nuts and with sprouted buckwheat, dates, and carob powder.

    I’ve been having a green smoothie every day for lunch and loving it! They keep me really full, which is always a good thing 🙂

    I used to loooove green smoothies, but I got sort of burnt out on them, so I haven’t had one in awhile. They’re super yummy though.
