Today's post will be a deviation from hair and beauty but still natural tee hee. I spent the best part of 2 weeks away from home and the food at the place I was staying was not very kind to my insides. I've also been feeling kinda fat (I know I know, might sound conceited and vain but I feel that way).
I have decided to start the green smoothie challenge, http://www.greensmoothiechallenge.com/. Its a 14 day programme where you drink a green smoothie every day for 14 days. One can choose to replace one meal per day with a smoothie however I have chosen to replace two meals.
This Saturday armed with a bucketful of motivation and of course some money I went blender hunting and got a deal on a Phillips blender with a 1 year warranty. I also armed myself with an array of fruits and vegetables from the supermarket, got some mango, papaya, watermelon, bananas,avocado, spinach, cucumber, ginger, apples and oranges.
I made my first smoothie this morning and as I was blending it, I must say it looked pretty yuck...but when I tasted some it was absolutely lovely. I made my smoothie with papaya, mango, spinach, melon, banana and some orange juice..pic below.
The smoothie itself looked like this,
I hope I last the whole 14days. In between meals lol I am having green tea with melon. I do not like weighing myself so at the end of the challenge I shall just see if I can fit in Marys jeans and if I do hurrah!! If not at least my insides will be kinda cleansed. I shall keep you posted on how things are going.
