Day 1…

Overall it was a great day, my motivation was high and I feel good.  It was funny to see how often I would normally take a bite here and there of my kids food or snacks….probably why I haven’t been able to shed those last pounds!!!  LOL

Here is what I ate on day 1:

  • Green Smoothie with 1 cup baby spinach, 2 small bananas, 1 cup frozen organic blueberries, water and ice
  • organic green tea
  • 1.5 pounds of watermelon
  • 6 raw almonds
  • Green Juice made with 3 stalks of Swiss Chard (from my garden), 3 limes, 2 organic apples, and 1 guava….this was blended together and then strained to remove all of the pulp
  • Ginormous salad made with baby spinach, romaine, sprouts, 1 cubanelle pepper, 1/2 cucumber, dulse which is a dried seaweed, cayenne pepper and drizzled with raw apple cider vinegar and flax oil
  • chocolate cherry smoothie made with 1 cup frozen Michigan cherries, 2 small bananas, coconut water, Stevia leaves from my garden, 1 tbsp. organic cocoa powder…blended up with ice.
  • Fresh organic raspberries…..went grocery shopping and got hungry on the way home so I devoured a whole 6 oz. container of raspberries!!!  (Which by the way are on sale at Meijer this week 3 for $5 and those are for organic and non organic!!!)
  • 60 oz. of water
