Mini-Feast--It's the Feast for Me

I've been toying with the idea of a smoothie feast for a while. I think it took me a while to figure out that I still need to have a certain amount of fat while doing the feast. I can add coconut butter, nut milk, hemp seeds, ground flax seeds or other yummy goodness to my smoothies, but there has to be a bit of fat in there or I just don't function well. I don't think I could do 92 days of anything. (That's a popular goal for juice feasts these days.) Surely, I could do 3 days!

Raw Diva Keely suggested I sign up for the Green Smoothie Queen 3-Day Challenge hosted by the Raw Divas. It starts on February 18th. Lovely Boyfriend happens to be leaving town on February 17th ( a trip about which I am not thrilled). Coincidence? I think not!

I think I'll order the Divas green smoothie jug. It comes with a couple of passes to the Feast. I'd normally give the second pass to LB. He's a great sport and would certainly go along for 3 days, but I think I should do this first one by myself. I can always offer him the opportunity later. Besides, I get tons of greens in my CSA basket and this won't increase my food bill at all. There's a certain thrill to having this all to myself.

Awesome! The cool thing is we make our own rules, so this should be about abundant greens, rather than deprivation. Good luck! I hope you enjoy it!
