Clean DAY 5
Are you guys getting tired of this? I’m getting tired of eating like this, so I imagine you are. I’m not the kind of blogger that thinks my life is overly exciting and needs to post inane details of my existence…
But, I will continue to use the internet for my benefit and force you all to be my group support.
This smoothie really sucked. I had to choke it down. Too healthy.
Coconut Milk Tropical Smoothie (don’t let the title fool you – it tasted like crap)
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/3 cup Mango and Pineapple combined
- 2 Kale leaves
- 1/4 avocado
- 1 T chia seeds
- Pinch stevia
Blend until smooth.
I think since I had not soaked my chia seeds before, they absorbed all of the liquid and it was too gelatinous.
Lunch, as you may recall, was eaten with Thomas at school for his Star of the Week. Since I didn’t have tome to cook anything, I picked up a chicken breast and steamed veggies. I added some of my tabouli quinoa. At this point, my taste buds have reassimilated and the sweetness of carrots never tasted to good….
This dinner smoothie tasted MUCH better. I know I need to juice more, but it has been hard for me to agree to a cup of beet juice for dinner over a smidge of sweetness from some berries.
Strawberry, Blueberry and Kale Smoothie
- 1 cup homemade almond milk (someday I’ll teach you)
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 4 medium strawberries
- 2 kale leaves
- Pinch of stevia
Blend until smooth. (Do I really need to keep reminding you this essential step? I feel like I am assuming you are dumb)
I was very proud of myself – I went to two little parties last night and managed to stay away from the wine and appetizers. I had a couple of asparagus stalks and 3 grape. Well done, if I do say so myself!
