April Challenge – One Green Smoothie a Day Challenge

April Challenge – One Green Smoothie a Day Challenge

This April challenge is simple; it’s a smoothie a day, yeah. It’s not just about losing weight but getting healthy. This challenge is NOT a magic way of losing weight but it’s a great way of starting off a weight loss journey, a healthier life or finding a routine that works for maintaining a weight loss. No magic can beat healthy eating and portion control, so drinking a green smoothie and eating fast food won’t do anything. I’m not saying you shouldn’t indulge but don’t think green smoothie is a magic portion. It’s important to have a healthy lifestyle. The April challenge starts 5th April and ends 30th April, so its 25 days of a green smoothie a day. Be creative and adventurous because sticking to normal smoothie will bore you. Here’s a list of ideas for making exciting green smoothies:

Fruits   Base Vegetable Healthy fat

Cilantro Nutmeg Cinnamon etc. Coconut water Water Greek yogurt Skimmed milk Almond milk Natural soy milk Low fat yogurt etc. Spinach Kale Green vegetables Green Water leaf Ugu Cucumber etc. Avocado (1/2)1 tsp. coconut oilSunflower seedEtc.

Make sure to eat healthy and exercise while on this challenge, I’ll be posting workouts on my blackberry channel (C0021926B). Green smoothies recipes are endless.
