Day 10: Blueberry with a Splash of Strawberry

day_10Today marks the first day that I’m starting up my workout program again! Now that my body and schedule have adjusted to a healthier diet and lifestyle, I can add in a specific workout schedule. When you’re changing your diet/lifestyle it can be hard on your body.

If you’re following the advanced plan completely and not just for green smoothies it can take a lot longer. For the first few weeks your body is  trying to convert from using sugar for energy to using fat for energy which will turn you into a fat-burning machine!  Woohoo!

Remember, everyone is different so for some it might take longer and others you might be able to catch up quicker. Only add in workouts when you feel up to it. You don’t want to push yourself over the edge. It’s important to listen to your body and if it says you’re tired then make sure to rest. I have a hard time with that since like most people I’m always busy and on-the-go! So I took the time to relax and only did little workouts here and there.

maxT3Now I have to tell you about my awesome workout program. It’s called maxT3 and only takes 12 minutes at home! This makes it easy to squeeze into your mornings (set your alarm to wake up 15 minutes early!).  Get more information and buy it here. It’s totally worth it and will kick your butt. 🙂

Now for the recipe from Day 10!

Blueberry with a  Splash of Strawberry

  • Spinach
  • 1/2 c. Frozen Blueberries
  • 5 Frozen Strawberries
  • 1 spoonful Whole Fat Plain Yogurt (no low-fat, non-fat, or fat-free!!!)
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Perfect Protein
  • Sprinkle Raw Almonds
  • 2 spoonfuls Coconut Milk Fat
  • 1 drop Blueberry Stevia
  • 1/2 tbsp Coconut Oil

I found that adding the Perfect Protein into my smoothies this week made a BIG difference. They tasted a lot better since it adds flavor and sweetness. I also started adding it since I’m working out more and getting the right protein is really important to helping your body recover after an intense workout. Read more about it here.

Enjoy!

  1. This sounds like a good one. I have a friend that makes me weekend smoothies with some of these fruits (strawberries and other berries), i’m not sure what all of the fruit are that she puts in it – but it’s really, really tart and bitter. Any suggestions on how I can make it a little sweeter. Would yogurt be good with fruit? I’m new to the home smoothie world. -thanks.

    • Hi Louie!

      I would find out what ingredients she’s using since there could be multiple reasons why it’s bitter. I know raspberries and blackberries tend to be more tart than blueberries and strawberries. Berries also tend to get more bitter as they lose their freshness so using frozen berries instead would also help.

      For now I would add whole yogurt (not low-fat) and some natural sugar such as stevia or xylitol to take away the bitterness. You can also try some of the recipes here as I found none of them had a bitter taste. 🙂
