Green Smoothies

Hell Everyone!

How are y'all doing?

Late last year, I discovered Green Smoothies. Since then, I have even done a 3 day smoothie cleanse with great results. I have noticed an increased in energy, better sleep and improved bowel regularity (yep! it's all about the fiber!!!).

I decided to share some of my favorites green smoothie recipes in case anyone wanted to try. I make mine to be filling and balanced. I also add ginger and sometime cayenne pepper as the mood strikes me. Enjoy!

1. Beginner's Green Smoothie
1 cup Spinach
1 cup frozen fruit (pineapple or mango) or 1 banana (frozen)
1 - 1.5 cups of Unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon of Almond butter
1 teaspoon Chia seeds
1 teaspoon milled Flax seeds

Note: Eat this with two eggs for a balanced meal.

2. Protein Green Smoothie
1 cups of  Spinach/Kale/Swiss Chard
1/4 - 1/2 cup rolled oats (Old Fashioned)
1 cup frozen fruit
1 - 1.5 cups Unsweetened almond milk
1 serving Vanilla Protein Powder
1 teaspoon Almond butter
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon milled flax seeds.

Note: I use this as a light meal replacement or snack.

3. Low Carb Green Smoothie
2 cups Spinach/Kale/Swiss Chard
1/4 - 1/2 cup Old-Fashioned rolled oats
1 serving Low Carb protein powder (I'm currently using Cellucor Cor-Performance why in Whipped Vanilla).
1 tablespoon Chia seeds
1 tablespoon MCT oil (or other fat or choice e.g  Almond Butter or an Avocado)
1 - 1.5 cups Unsweetened Almond milk (for more calories use Coconut Milk)

Note: This has no fruits and is great for people watching their sugar intake (My personal fave)

4. Post-Workout Recovery Green Smoothie
1 cup Spinach/Kale
1 - 1.5 cups Coconut Water (no added sugars)
1/2 - 1 frozen Banana
1 teaspoon Chia seeds

If y'all try it, let me know how it works out for you!

I'm In.

Hey y'all,

I see this page is back to being active. I'm always down for accountability with my fitness and nutrition goals. Will be back to post in full detail.


OK, i'm BACK! After our challenge ended, I did gain some weight back. I have now started implementing holistic approaches to help me lose fat (not necessarily weight, there's a difference!). I'm working on my sleep, stress and diet. While my weight on the scale hasn't changed much, I have seen inches lost all over my body. In April, I will do a green smoothie challenge!

Be well,

Bumight: End of February

Weight: 150

I really dont want to keep track of weight loss this season because I'm not really doing anything. I'm participating in the RCCG fast, and as such I dont have the energy for intense workouts at all. I guess its because I eat 1.5 times a day that my weight has been slowly falling off, but I am not eating "clean" foods per se.
I eat my rice, and swallows, because I need the energy from those carbs to fuel me during the day.

so I'm down roughly another 10 Ibs this month, I guess fasting and prayer really works!
