Green smoothie - 187

Lately I've been buying spinach and not eating it before it goes bad. So I got some and am determined to use it! So I made my very first green smoothie this morning. Eh. Not really impressed. Will have to seek out various recipes to see what will improve the taste for me. I used spinach, frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, flax seed and almond milk.

Looking back, I see that I really haven't posted photos since JULY! Part of that is because of a slow gaining back of around 10 pounds. :-P Will try to get back into good habits and posting photos more.

Cutting out dairy, gluten and corn is quite the challenge. They put corn syrup in almost EVERYTHING! I bought some coconut milk yogurt to try and it was delish! So I'm going to find more of that kind of thing because I do love my yogurt!

Weight today - 187

I make mine with almond breeze, a frozen banana(this is the most important) and baby spinach. You can add sweetener or anything else but that is the basics. I usually add flax seed as well.

Girl, are you 6 ft. 6 or something? No way you are hiding 187 pounds on that body otherwise!!!

I have to watch my spinach intake, since I started spitting out uric acid kidney stones a couple of years ago. Too bad, because I love spinach. oh well...

I've got to get back on the smoothie wagon, too. (Isn't spinach particularly gross when it spoils?)

Wishing you a VERY happy new year!

I have yet to find a green smoothies recipe I really like, so when you find one let me know!

Don't despair about the regain, weight is thankfully a condition that is extremely malleable. Be on plan for a month or two and those ten pounds will float away (wow, I need to take my own advice!).

Corn syrup is in everything. I am cutting out the HFCS...that was definately hard!
Good luck! I can't imagine using spinach in smoothies, but many people like it!

Sounds delicious! I love green smoothies! :)

Banana or mango can really make a lovely difference.

Happy New Year!
