Green Smoothie Wrap-up

So the Green Smoothie Challenge ended on Wednesday, and what did I learn:

  • I really do love green smoothies, but the savory ones are best for cold weather.
  • Living Foods has to be about abundance for me. When my mind clicks over to a scarcity mentality--focused on what I can't have--I slide into panic mode.
  • I need fats to function well.
  • Having a dedicated smoothie container makes things much more convenient.
  • There's definitely a more intense feeling of lightness that comes with living off of green smoothies. I can only imagine the energy I'd have if I did it for a longer time period, or if I did a juice feast.
  • I'm incredibly fortunate to have access to so much fresh, organic, local produce.

There will definitely be more green smoothies in my future--I'll likely invite LB to do a challenge with me when he returns--but I still love fruits and veggies in their original forms best of all.

I'm off to finish my juice of beet greens and apples.

Thanks, Terilynn! I was scared there for a minute, with my mini-freak out. Somehow it all worked out though.

I liked reading about the things you learned.

Cheers!

I truly enjoy reading your blog. I just can't get with the wheatgrass, but maybe one day ;) Also I learned in my Advanced Psyc class that humans crave fats and salt, so maybe try an avocado with salt.
