green goodness

Hello, Day 3!

This morning's shake was very good- my favorite so far. We also had it last night for dinner. We decided to create our own concoction this time. We stayed within the portion size and ingredients available to us.
Apple Pear Butter
1 medium apple
1 pear
2t almond butter
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop Amazing meal (vanilla chai)
1T flaxseed meal
1t vanilla
pinch of cinnamon
handful of ice
*I keep forgetting to mention in the other posts that the portion size used in the smoothies is for 2 servings.
The green coloring can be attributed to the color of Amazing meal powder. You can see the sprinkles of cinnamon and flax meal.

I dont think my body has quite adapted yet to the new eating habits. I have been feeling a little more tired and definitely pretty hungry at times. Particularly between lunch and dinner. But its only day 3 and I know the cleanse takes an adjusting period. But after about a week, you are acutally suppose to have an increase in energy. This is because your body is using less energy to digest foods that are described as 'hard to digest.' It makes sense... but I will let you know how that works for me. :)

And just for some general encouragement, I created a board today at Polyvore.

I love your summer style board! I just bought a straw fedora, but I may have to swap out the standard black ribbon for a nautical, striped one.
