Well, this past week I took the plunge. Daily green smoothies. Yup. This is day 3. First day was kale, celery, banana, kiwi and green apple. Pretty decent tasting! Day two, ALL veggies…and way too thick and Ewwwwwww!!!!!! Picture ground up veggies you have to eat with a spoon. Enuf said. Tonight, a handful of cabbage, some kale and a celery stalk, half a green apple, lemon juice, and a handful of blueberries thrown in at the end. Plus two cups of water. Pretty good, actually. But maybe a bit too thin.
The first day and yesterday I felt fine…but today I have felt overall flu-ish..(and kinda grumpy!) Apparently as you begin to detox you can feel a bit ‘off’ and today I do. So, that’s a good thing, I suppose.
My son Evan is drinking them with me. Apparently, as I’ve been researching them on my computer, he’s been doing the same thing! It’s nice to have the company…
I’m really loving this, so far. It’s so easy to drink my veggies and fruit! Requires hardly any prep, minimal dishes to wash (LOVE that part!)..I don’t have to come up with a plan for how to creatively cook veggies for dinner (I’m really bad at that, by the way)….and I’m doing something good for my body. Wish I’d done this sooner!
