Rejuvinate your Body with Green Smoothies!

Rejuvinate your Body with Green Smoothies!

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.

  1. Great idea! I couldn’t eat veggies for my first trimester either and was going way off the rails with the holidays and all. I actually got a Ninja for Christmas so I’ve been doing smoothies which allows me to get some more veggies in thank god. I put broccoli in a smoothie the other day and I couldn’t even taste it!

      Broccoli in a smoothie!?! I’ve never thought to do that. Was it raw or cooked?

  2. Raw! Couldn’t taste it at all, that’s why I love the ninja. I had fruit and protein powder in it as well.
