Green Smoothie

by Destini on June 11, 2013

Something utterly amazing happened today, I woke up at 5:50 and stayed awake on my own accord. I just couldn’t fall back asleep? When did I grow up? JK I guess that really has nothing to do with it…… but I am almost 30? LOL -again I kid

Work has been so exhausting lately. It is a great surprise and relief that I am managing to get my booty in gear and still finishing my Revolt program plus somehow got in a crazy cardio sesh on the stair master today. Has anyone ever used this machine? Kinda looks like an escalator but with a 1/4 of the amount of steps? I had seen many people use it before and it always just made me chuckle. But today I thought? Hey my legs are still sore from Sundays workout and I just finished my lower body workout…….why not push out some more? (remember I said work has been exhausting too?)

Top right is my lower body workout and bottom right is my 30 min of cardio! Go me!!

I have been getting into bed between 9:30 – 10pm which is pretty much unheard of for me. I have been trying to really listen to my body and that is just what it wants. Mind you, I don’t usually get off my phone for at least 20-30min after that. It’s a horrible bad habit that I really need to decrease, G gets all angry when I can’t get off of it and I keep saying “just a few more minutes”.  I have been trying to  keep my body hydrated more too. I thought I was drinking enough water, but since I started doing the old rubber band trick on the water bottle, apparently I am not. I feel this is something my body has been screaming at me to take in more and I have not been listening closely enough.

Now that it has FINALLY gotten warmer here  in Winnipeg, I’ve started getting my smoothie itch back. It had been awhile, because lets face it, bad weather and cold drinks just don’t feel that refreshing. In fact, I rather not be reminded of slush and cold…but now….BRING THEM ON!

Because the people at Natural Vitality are the most wicked and awesomest(check out my made up words) they keep me stocked up on all their great products.  When they sent me their Plant-Sourced Minerals I was eager to try it! When I opened the cap I immediately smelled green apples. It reminded me of jolly ranchers to be honest. And the taste? It tastes like green apple jolly ranchers. I’ve honestly been just having this with some water. But why stop there? Let’s put some jolly ranchers in a green smoothie!

If you’re wondering why you would want to take Plant-Sourced Minerals,  Natural Vitality’s website explains just that “Your body uses nutrients in the food you eat to rebuild itself constantly. If you are not supplying your body with key minerals it needs, its biological processes will slow down, which can contribute to low energy and aging.”

Ingredients: Yields: 1 serving

  • 1/2 cup of fresh pineapple
  • 1 mango, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 of a banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1/2 cup pineapple coconut water (or just coconut water)
  • Half of green apple
  • handful of spinach
  • 1tsp Natural Vitality Plant-Sourced Liquid Minerals
  • Ice

Directions: Place all ingredients into blender, starting with liquid, fruit, spinach, blend till almost all smooth, add in ice and blend till all combined.

Easy peasy! – hmmm what is with this humor? Is it maybe exhaustion?

Phew! What a weekend & Revolt-Week 6 Check-In

June 10, 2013

My weekend was a wonderful sweaty one! Spent a lot of time at the gym and keeping up with my Revolt Fitness program. Sunday which is usually a rest day for me was spent with the hubby doing his leg day. WOWZER!! It was really the first time we ever did a workout together, I must say it won’t be the last.

Lemon Roasted Chicken

May 23, 2013

It’s sunny and the weather is finally warming up here. Too bad I have been sick for almost two weeks.  But thing’s are looking up, I’m not feeling like complete death anymore, just congested. I have kept to my workout plan though. I feel this helps speed up the healing. Don’t have a verdict on this yet. One of the major questions I have gotten when asked about my Revolt Fitness program is “What are you eating? Rice crackers?” and my response “Heck no! Delicious clean food”. For any of you that have been following my blog for sometime know that I love love love FOOD. It’s a passion. I […]
