Hi friends! Several of you have emailed me about my “clean eating”. Am I still doing it? What am I eating? I also posted this picture of a green smoothie on instagram and you asked for the recipe. So here’s my update and a recipe!
First, yes I’m still committed to “clean eating”. Clean eating can be different for everyone but for me, I’m trying to eat as little processed food as possible. Which means I have to cook more. Ugh!
I don’t think I will ever be 100% clean, that’s not a realistic goal for me but I would like to be 75% clean. My husband loves to ask me if our food is “dirty” or “clean”. He thinks he’s so funny!
I’ve mentioned several websites I’m using such as The Gracious Pantry, and 100 Days of Real Food. Both of them have great recipes and most of the ones I’ve tried I love!
Another thing I’ve recently signed up for is Emeals.com. Emeals meal plan arrives in my inbox every week—complete with seven simple, creative, family–friendly dinner recipes. Each meal includes an entrée and side dishes.
All you do is choose a meal plan based on your eating style (there’s paleo, clean, glutten free, low carb, slow cooker, organic and the list goes on), your family size and even your favorite grocery store.
So far, I’ve been very impressed! I joined for 3 months which was $21. You get your meals and your grocery list delivered each week! If you’d like more info. just click the button below.
Now for the green smoothie recipe. I got this from the blog The 2 Seasons Blog. It’s a mother/daughter blog and I’ve met them in person. The one word I would describe for both of them is elegant! I loved getting to chat with them and I’ve enjoyed reading their blog.
Green Smoothie1 cup of coconut milk, almond milk or regular milk. (I used organic whole milk.) 2 cups of kale or swiss chard 1-2 carrots 1/2 to 1 cup of blueberries 5 big strawberries 1 frozen banana (break it into pieces before freezing) 1 tablespoon of peanut butter for protein and an extra kick.
I didn’t have any carrots so I didn’t add them. I also like my smoothie to have a little more of a sweet taste so I added a tablespoon of pure maple syrup.
That’s it! Super good and super healthy!
Are any of you on this journey with me? How are you doing? Have you found any great websites?
