Many of us over at the yahoo discussion group decided to join forces and partner in the 6 week challenge.
My Dh has been reading, The Engine 2 Diet and has chosen to get rid of all the meat, dairy, oil and unhealthy processed grains and starches. We pilfered through the kitchen cabinets/pantry finding all the SAD (standard american diet) foods and gathered them all. My shelves are almost empty. :) I'm thrilled! Now my refrigerator and freezer are buldging at the seams. hee hee
Monday, January 4 began with a whole wheat bean burrito with homemade salsa for my Dh, and for me - I started out with my usual green blended smoothie.
3 large kale leaves, stems removed
1-2 cups frozen spinach
1 cup stawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 TB ground flax seeds
1/2 dropper full of dha
1 TB chia, hemp or sesame seeds
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
enough water for 64 ounces of smoothie
This is my usual recipe that I pretty much stick to. Sometimes I'll add some broccoli sprouts. And occasionally I'll change the strawberries to a tropical fruit mix and the blueberries to a mixed berry.
I have lots of parsley growing and thought I might throw some of that in the blender too. I want to up my crucifers, so I might add some of the broccoli stalk too.
If any of you want to do that too, just make sure you peel the stalk first.
So I drink half of this in the morning. The rest I'll drink later in the day or for breakfast the following morning.
