In the last couple of months, since I cut back on teaching fitness training classes, cabin fever set in and I felt like I got stuck and need to press a reset button on my body. I slacked off a bit on my green smoothie intake, while keeping my overall diet completely clean. Although numbers on the scale have not changed, I feel that I can do better than this (see, no one is perfect ). So, this week, I am bringing Green Smoothie revival into my life ! It is on! I had prepared myself a 7-Day RESET PLAN. I am about to tell you all about it, so you can join me if you would like.
7-Day RESET PLAN
For the entire week I will consciously make efforts not to let myself slip back into “no green smoothies” land. I will be prepared each and every day! (Last night I prepped 130 oz of green goodness for today, so I have no excuses to get caught up in my busy life and forget to make it.)
I will strive to eat raw as much as possible, although, if I do consume some cooked foods, I will NOT feel bad, guilty or off plan! I have some leftovers in my fridge, which I am not planning to waste. I will, however, have a lot of raw goodness and green smoothies on hand so that I will reach for them first. If I had a juicer, I would also do at least a couple of green juices a day.
Each day I will consume at least 3-4 servings of green smoothies; or, if I happen to decide to do green smoothies only, enough to keep me feeling satiated, full of energy and happy.
At the end of the week, I will have reset myself back to my good old ways of at least 2 green smoothies a day.
I would love for you to join me on this adventure. If you would like to, but do not know where to start, I do have a couple of ebooks to help you along. You can find them toward the bottom of this post.
I will attempt to post a couple of green smoothie recipes and my daily menus here every other day as well. I also highly encourage you yo join my GREEN SMOOTHIE EMAIL LIST for the duration of this challenge, to receive regular tips and tricks of green smoothie goodness and benefits. You can do it by entering your information in this form:
I will post my today’s green smoothie recipes in the next post for your enjoyment.
I wish you health! If it happens that any of us, doing this challenge, shed a few pounds in the process of feeling better, it will be a great bonus.
If you have any questions or comments about the 7 DAY RESET PLAN, make sure to drop a note under this post.
As a bonus with either of the green smoothie ebooks, you will get a lifetime access to the Vegalicious Green Smoothie Facebook community!
3-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse
The downloadable e-guide is filled with instructions, ingredient list and 21 delicious green smoothie recipes to help you kick start your journey to a healthier you. To see what participants of the Cleanse said about it click through to the Cleanse page.
Life On Greens
This e-book contains over 60 green smoothie recipes and instructions on how to do a green smoothie cleanse, be it 3, 5 or 7 days. It will be a go-to recipe book for any green smoothie lover, whether a veteran or a beginner. All recipes are completely vegan [of course!] and are designed to take your health to the next level.
If you would like more raw dishes in your diet as well, you might want to grab a copy of High on Raw eBook:
High on Raw 7-Day Cleanse
The e-book has several sections:
- Introduction to the Cleanse
- How To’s and Whys of the Cleanse
- Tips on making the Cleanse a success
- Practical step to transition off the Cleanse and continue with a healthy lifestyle (I have never been and am not a proponent of 100% raw eating, so I will tell you how to transition into introducing cooked foods back into your diet, but still benefiting from a high raw diet)
Recipe sections include (over 60 recipes!):
- Green Smoothies (never published before)
- Fruit Smoothies and Drinks
- Salads, Wraps and other Delicious Eats
- Snacks, including the fabulous Vegalicious Raw Snack Bar, and even…
The cleanse is meant to be 100% raw, no fats, sugars or processed foods. (Participants will also be asked to exclude all caffeine and alcohol consumption during the cleanse.) If you are pregnant, like I am, or nursing, going all raw overnight is not suggested, so I will include a couple of solutions, to where you can still benefit from the cleanse, but include at least one cooked meal into the cleanse a day. The benefits will still be mind blowing.
Everyone who purchases a copy of HIGH ON RAW will be offered a lifetime membership to Facebook HIGH ON RAW cleanse group, where they will get peer support and my input as well.
