Happy Monday!!! I can’t believe that I am reaching the end of my personal challenge : Losing Weight with Smoothies!
At this point looking back, I am delighted that I have made it this far (I can sometimes be a bit flaky) and that it is nearly finished, but I am also delighted with the results so far.
This week I have lost just under 1 kg. Still good but not as great as before. Happy enough with it though. We all know that it is easier to loose weight at the beginning of a diet and then it gets harder shedding those last pounds. I guess that your body just gets used to the new regime… And, in the spirit of full disclosure, I was away for the weekend and I did go near the smoothie make once! I will not bit myself about it. As I mentioned on my first week, I can never be a slave to a diet. I guess it is all about balance.
This week green smoothie is a lighter shade of green than even last week’s one! It is very refreshing and it has hints of summer in it…
WEEK 4 : HONEYDEW AND MINT SMOOTHIE
1/2 honeydew melon, cut into chunks (about 4 cups, or 1 1/2 lbs)
1 cup light coconut milk
5-6 leaves fresh mint
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
Drizzle of honey to taste (optional, depending on how sweet your melon is)
You can of course add Chia Seeds to the smoothie to boost the Omega 3 intake (more info on Chia Seeds see here) or any other kind of seeds for added natural oils! I would have but I think I have packed mine somewhere in preparation for the new kitchen coming next week (excited and terrified at once!) and I could not locate them.
Very fresh. Very tasty. Very healthy.
Last week guys – let’s stay strong!
