The Eat Clean workshop is done. One of the things that I would like to continue is to have green smoothie for lunch once a week. Easier said than done for a reluctant green smoothie consumer like yours truly. For starters, the notion of drinking something green repels me. Secondly, not a big fan of eating raw spinach or kale. Why bother then? I love how the 16 oz of lunch makes me feel – full but light, sated and not craving. Even better, the next meal is so much more tastier because of the clean palate this one leaves you with. Not to forget all the nourishment that your body gets in the process!
If you ask me, it’s worth getting used to. Want to give it a shot? Here’s a recipe I followed last week that I quite liked – baby spinach (one can never get enough iron), celery stick (like the clean aftertaste), avocado slices (good fat for that feeling of fullness), berries (what with all those antioxidants), green apple (added mainly for volume) salt (flavor), aamchur powder (for that zing), ginger and turmeric (anti inflammatory). Blend them all together with water.
