I first tried the 3 day Challenge, which got me hooked! I have since graduated to the 10 day Challenge, with the full intention of doing a full 21 day Challenge next. I am still eating dinner, but mind you, much smaller portions since I really haven't been that hungry.
And the biggest surprise? My husband has joined along with me! That was a surprise. I wasn't expecting for him to agree so easily. I had my speech all prepared, when he just said "Ok".
Here is what is in our breakfast smoothie this morning:
1 cup Pineapple
1 cup red grapes
Juice of 4 apples
3 cups spinach
Some Ice for blending because I like mine cold!
(This recipe makes about 32 oz)
That is it. I cut up all of the fruit about 3 times a week and have it stored in the fridge. This way it takes me a total of 3 minutes to prepare a smoothie. After making the breakfast smoothie, I immediately start making the lunch smoothie so that I can take it with me for the day.
The recipe above Jeff really liked. I found it a bit on the too sweet side. I do have my favorite recipe, but I will give that another time.
After a week of this, here are some noteable changes. My cravings have up and disappeared without me trying to give them up. Anyone who knows me, knows I enjoy my coffee and Diet Coke! I'm down to about a half of a cup of coffee in the morning, and I only had 2 Diet Cokes all week. And I didn't finish either one. I also lost 2 lbs without even trying! That is an accomplishment.
