One healthy goal I made for myself over a year ago was to eat something green every day. There are a lot of days that this is really easy for me, and lately, I have gotten off of my health kick and have not been eating as well. I am trying to reevaluate why I want to be healthy in the first place and that #1 reason is for my ids. I’ve said it many times before, but I want to be healthy so I can live a long and active life! I want to be able to run around with my kids AND grandkids one day!
Last week I mentioned that I really wanted to start working out every day, again. I’ve only been doing mild workouts about 3 to 4 times a week, and while that is not terrible, I really want to get after it. I feel better when I am moving every day and fitness has always been a big part of my life. I enjoy staying active and so I need to make that a priority again. I’m happy to say that I have done much better this last week and have actually worked out every day!
A few ways I like to sneak more greens in my diet is to add lettuce to my sandwiches, opt for a salad at lunch, cook green beans or turnips when it is fitting with dinner, or my personal favorite, drink a green smoothie. I love smoothies! They are so delicious that my brain thinks it is eating dessert, but my body is getting tons of nutrients. My latest jam has been the Apple Kiwi Kale Smoothie from Smoothie King! I literally can’t get enough of these meal replacement smoothies. They are so filling and are delicious! Bonus points? My son loves them, too, so this sneaky momma is giving him some delicious fruits and veggies, too! Shh, don’t tell!
Smoothie King has a new Veggie Avocado Pineapple smoothie that I am also dying to try! I love avocado and have been very curious about this new way to eat it! Smoothie King also offers a Berry Carrot Dream Smoothie and Carrot Kale Dream Smoothie! I just can’t quit drinking my Apple Kiwi Kale, but maybe one day I will brave the unknown and try another green smoothie!
