missed my morning smoothies so much 🌿🍓🍌 so today I’m stating the day right by eating my favourite rainbow smoothie bowl ✨ Ig - claudia.jeann

Made a tropical green smoothie this afternoon to perk me up 😎💪

2 cups spinach
1+½ cup coconut milk
1 banana
½ frozen banana
1 kiwi (I kept the skin on and just cut off the ends)
1 huge handful frozen pineapple
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 serving vegan protein powder
Frozen mango topping

Note: I went a little crazy with the spinach because I ❤️ spinach SO MUCH so this made about 1.5 servings. Whoops 🙈

If you don’t like the taste of protein powder in a liquid like me, definitely leave it out. I just needed a little recovery boost for my sore muscles! I have yet to find a protein powder that actually tastes good and doesn’t leave a weird texture in my smoothies 😔 If anyone else has please please PLEASE message me about it, I will be forever grateful!!!

Because of the super cold weather in North Carolina I haven’t been able to run so I just did yoga yesterday but WOW was it a workout and so centering! Here’s the link if anyone wants to check it out: http://youtu.be/xIwNWcvY_Cw

Raw kale and ginger blender smoothie:

This one is packed with immune-boosting nutrients, and is easily made in a blender!

Ingredients (all organic):
1 piece raw ginger, peeled and diced

1 apple, sliced

1 cup celery, chopped

1 kiwi, peeled and halved

½ avocado, flesh only

3 (unpacked) cups kale or spinach leaves

Juice of ½ lemon

16 ounces pure water


To make in a blender:
Add water, ginger, celery, kiwi, lemon juice, and greens to blender. Pulse until greens are chopped (10-20 pulses). Start blending on low and add rest of ingredients, one at a time, increasing speed as needed until the highest speed setting and blend for 1-3 minutes until liquid. Pour into your favorite cup (finished it’s about 25 ounces).


Because this smoothie has healthy vegetarian fat and protein, it is a complete meal. I had it for lunch today and feel bright, energetic, and warm inside (thanks to that ginger)!


Enjoy!

Smoothie bowls for lunch because I got called into work at 5:30am 💁🏽 usually I would complain about having to work or the fact that it’s incredibly rainy but I’m very grateful to have a job that allows me to save for travels and mind having a little rain every now and then so I can appreciate the sun more 🌞

On the left you see me six weeks ago. On the right is me today. You might not be able to tell, but i can see all the progress in the world. My posture has excelled, my legs have lengthened, And just look at those shoulders. but, where I see the most progress is my obliques. Ive also had trouble getting rid of them, no matter the exercise. I have realized that without the proper fat fighting diet, it is impossible to slim down in that region. 

So, I’ll share my bi-weekly grocery list 

plain, no flavor greek yogurt

fresh strawberries (i’d get blueberries but i HATE them), grapefruit, mango, avocado, bell peppers (i only like the green kind), carrots, spinach and other leafy greens 

an assortment of frozen fruits

low/no sodium chicken broth

fresh ORGANIC chicken breast/ salmon/tuna/ground turkey

granola with chia seeds

pre-made Naked smoothies (Green Boost) 


what goes into your body is truly what will come out of it. Eating things rich in vitamins is the most important things I’ve learned. Its not so much counting calories, but it is more so eating things that are very well balanced. If it is low in sugar, it is probably high in fat; if its low on carbs, it is probably also low on protein. ALWAYS READ YOUR FOOD LABELS BEFORE YOU EAT.
