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.

Congrats on completing your challenge! I'm glad the experience didn't turn you off to future challenges.

Peace and love,

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

Ditto! Congrats :)

I liked reading about the things you learned.

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.
