Hello friends! Welcome back to The Kitch. How’s Tuesday shaping up for all of you? I have spent the morning connecting with fellow bloggers on Twitter. Always surround yourself with like-minded people it is SO motivating! This morning I had what I like to call “The Hulk”. The Hulk is a smoothie filled with green, green goodness such as my faves, spinach and kale! This glass of nutrients is an amazing way to start off the day plus it’s super fast to blend up! It leaves you feeling refreshed, energized and later helps to cleanse the body because it’s packed with fibre.. If you get what I’m saying here. The Hulk has also been an amazing contributor to healthy, glowing skin! I find that it helps to curve snacking cravings throughout the day as well and puts me on “the clean, green track”. I’ve been eating kale and spinach in some shape or form since 7 am today! My body is praising me right now and I’m full of energy and smiles!! Here’s how to blend up this delish and nutrish smoothie – do not be intimidated by the colour people! GREEN = GO = GREAT!
What You Will Need In The Kitch:
- 1 banana
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- Lemon wedge
- Couple dashes of cinnamon
- 1-2 slices of ginger
I consider everything except the kale, spinach, and banana to be optional. Many mornings I just use those three ingredients. But hey, the more fruits and veggies.. The merrier! You can also add in a protein powder as well. I don’t have any at the moment but I am a great supporter of Vega. As you can see I don’t buy unwashed spinach, I almost always opt to go with the baby container of Earthbound Farm speeeeenach! Yummy! I love Earthbound products, they truly are a great comapany. So basically all you have to do from here is throw all your ingredients into the blender add a bit of water depending on how you would like the consistancy and drink baby, drink!
I hope this encourages you guys to at least try this amazing smoothie once. I promise you will never look back. Take a chance.. Have faith in green! If you do try it wait until you continue having it every morning and your body adjusts, you will see an incredible difference in energy, complexion, and overall health. One thing I must say though is that if you start off your day with a great smoothie such as The Hulk and then go to McDonald’s for lunch you bet you will be cancelling out any benefits. But I do know what it is like, it takes baby steps to be fully committed to your health!
Today’s Quote In The Kitch: “The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.” ~Mark Twain
I wanted to alter this Twain quote a little bit. I feel like it should say, “The only way to keep your health is to eat and drink what you are afraid to try, and do what you would rather not.. Get off your butt and get active!”
