The saying goes that 80% of abs are made in the kitchen. This means that after all the hard workouts if your diet isn’t clean the majority of the time you ain’t gonna see no results! (preach)
In a world of supplements and quick fix powders & shakes, what we really should be packing our body with is superfoods; foods that are nature’s dynamite and pack a large variety of nutrients into a small natural product. E.G. kale.
I love to start my day off with a green smoothie.
I remember the very first one Jay made for me apon getting our Vitamix. The taste was very green. Like eating grass! And a little thick which made swallowing that more difficult but after a few more tries & tweaks it became addictive. You feel healthy drinking it.
So I wanted to share a few of my Instagram photos of my green smoothies and give you some guidance and ideas for making your own.
Note that you don’t have to have a Vitamix to create gorgeous green but you will need to blend the hell out of it to get a good smooth consistency.
People at work do look at me funny when I’m carrying around my ‘to go’ bottle of the green stuff!
My go-to ingredients are:
– coconut water
– apple or pear
– flaxseed or chia seed
– water to get consistency as required
But here are some other ideas I found via Pinterest (aaaah Pinterest!).
Popeye would be proud!
