My first trimester I didn’t really want anything except carbs. Mostly in the form of pizza or crackers. My normal foods like vegetables, fruits, and smoothies were not my friend. I wanted to drink them especially since it was a way I could get in some produce but I couldn’t even think about drinking them. Luckily around 14 weeks something changed and suddenly smoothies sounded so good! Perfect timing too since drinking smoothies is such a good way to reboot your system after a few weeks of holiday splurges. Cookies, chocolate, and more cookies sound familiar to anyone else? Well I sure enjoyed quite of a few of those and now that I’m finally craving some good, healthy food again I’m looking forward to drinking some daily green smoothies.
If you’re like me and looking to kick the New Year off on a healthy note with some healthy green smoothies, here are some ideas for you:
Start with the basics, some fruit, greens, liquids, then add in some flavor. Get creative and have fun with it! The options are endless!
Here are a few of my recent favorites to get you started
If you’re like me and you enjoy eating your smoothie, try this thick and creamy Mango Smoothie,
then top it with some of this granola,
