At the end of the Insanity workout that Rob and I do, there is a mini commercial for a green shake called Shakeology. It shows a bazillion fruits and vegetables blended into one beautiful and smooth green smoothie. Rob and I (starving from our workout) would watch the commercial and envision how much better our lives would be if we were drinking that shake daily.
Isn't it gorgeous?
They even put it in a curvy glass so that you subliminally think of a defined waist. Genius.
Rob and I finally gave into temptation and got a few shakeology mixes from our friend that works at Beachbody.
This is where green smoothies failed. This is, hands down, one of the most disgusting things I have ever, EVER eaten, and I don't say that lightly. I think I would haven enjoyed eating my lawn clippings more. So you'll understand why I've been hesitant to bring these back into my life.
But once again I have been sold on a picture. Check this puppy out:
Doesn't that just look like the epitome of health in a mason jar?! And unlike the dehydrated vomit in the first picture, I actually know what goes into this one:
Bananas + Peaches + Mango + Spinach + Water
Once I have done this consistently for a week or two, I'll let you know how it tastes, how I feel, etc. But for now, if you have a better recipe, or some green smoothie experience you'd like to pass on to me - I'd love to hear it!
BDEM: Um...I actually don't know where this day has gone. It has been - in general - a great day...but I think I've been glued to the internet today! Good thing I got so much done yesterday. So, BDEM....hmm... the relaxation that comes after getting all your work done? Maybe?
Water: 70 oz
