30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge Week 2 Update (8 – 14th October)

Gooood Morning,

Hope all of you are well Maicurlies!

Smoothies Week 2

Smoothies Week 2

I just finished up week 2 of the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge and all is well. Same as before, we received our new list of smoothie ideas and I am looking forward to their deliciousness!

If you missed my last update you can find my recipes from week 1 here.

Below are the smoothies I did in week 2:

(Note: On Day 6 and 7 I made the same smoothie twice out of pure laziness . I also wanted to say that some of you might want to add honey or something to sweeten the smoothies. Some of them are not as sweet as you would like so if you feel the need go ahead and add honey, agave nectar etc. )

Now, after my first week I made the grand comment of how I felt my skin was looking and feeling great and I don’t know if I jinxed myself but I got 3 spots towards the end of last week!

It is not uncommon for me to get spots but it is funny that just as I declared how great my skin is feeling …voila… 3 spots grace me with their presence. (Slightly off topic: I am working on a few DIY Skin care products and will keep you posted!)

Anywho, apart from the 3 rather large and annoying spots the rest of my skin is feeling & looking great (I hope I do not get more now that I’ve said that!) I also started working out and drinking water in the morning which is part of a NEW challenge I am doing. I told you, “tis the season to be challenged” 😀 I will make a new post about my workout & water challenge.

Overall I am a happy camper. I like knowing I am doing something good for my body and health, I still love every minute of making (and drinking) my smoothies and I look forward to the weeks that follow!

Would love to hear from you and your smoothie experiences. Have you noticed a difference in your health, skin? A pep in your step? Anything?

Thanks

30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge Week 1 Update (1- 7th October)

Hey Maicurlies,

Smoothie

                                         Smoothie

It has been 1 week of my 30 day Green Smoothie Challenge and it has gone by really well.

As I mentioned in my previous post (here) I received the first weeks recipes and now also have the recipes for week 2 & 3.

The ladies that run the challenge mentioned that we can deviate a little from the recipes provided and they also have a bunch of additional ones on their own website.

So I of course did make a few little changes to their recipes depending on my taste preferences and also on what I can easily get my hands on without it costing an arm and a leg.

Here are the recipes I made:

How do I feel? I don’t want to lie and say “I feel like a new person” or really different but one thing I have noticed is that my skin looks and feels good. I think it is clearer…I guess healthier is good word for it. I do feel good about the fact that I am drinking something healthy everyday and that makes me happy!

I also have to say that I am loving every minute of making my smoothies! I like going crazy with the combinations. For some of them I feel like I could do with a little additional sugar, something like honey but thus far I haven’t added any.

Regardless, I am looking forward to the weeks to come.

If you are doing this challenge or any other smoothie challenge please let me know how it is going. Do you have a favorite smoothie?

Thanks
