We are all creatures of habit, we like to eat what we are used to eating and follow the “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” routine. Most of the time we get stuck in a rut of eating the same things day after day. I am definitely someone who does that, we crave the food that we eat daily. I haven’t eaten sugar in 4 years and honestly don’t crave it. Why? because I haven’t eaten it in 4 years and my body simply doesn’t find it appealing. I find that to be one of the many reasons to why eating healthy comes so natural to me; because I’ve been doing it consistently for 4 years now. It’s not a one week cleanse to get ready for summer. Or a quick fix before a big event. It’s a lifestyle. You find results from consistency, whether its your eating habits, running, workouts….
I found myself in a breakfast rut, not willing or wanting to try anything new because my body craved eggs in the morning. But as I ramped up my training and started to do more cardiovascular workouts, I was sweating way more and craved hydration. I was totally envious of those “Acai Bowls” I have been seeing on Instagram. But there is something about making a smoothie at home as apposed to buying one. First off, 99% of the time they are way over priced. When you make it at home you can load it up with tons of veggies and use your own protein powder of choice along with a ton of other super-foods that won’t cost you an extra $1.00 to add.
This smoothie is basically the “kitchen sink” for me. I usually make some sort of version of it depending on what fresh or frozen produce is in season!
