The Green Glow: Day 6 – Cream Machine

Didn’t I tell you in a previous post that healthy habits beget more healthy habits? Well, it’s true. Day 6 is almost gone and I’m more than half way there. This has been a fun 10-Day green smoothie challenge! I LOVE the different flavor combinations. Today’s smoothie was DELECTABLY CREAMY and smooth due to the addition of the avocado and banana.

Not only did I drink my LUSCIOUS green smoothie, I also made a vegan dish; hence, another healthy treat. Participants in the challenge received a few bonus recipes.

I was off work today and decided to make one of the bonus recipes and I’m so glad I did. Not only did I have a healthy portion for lunch, but I have lunch portions for the next two days. There’s nothing like that Sriracha Sauce. It’s better than I imagined.

I substituted green beans for asparagus and maple syrup for honey in the sauce. The recipe also called for walnuts which I did not have. I used all frozen vegetables too. I’m not afraid to role with the punches. After all, I’m an experienced home cook. The dish still came out AMAZING and will definitely be a regular on my meal rotation schedule.

It’s much more beneficial and productive to focus on adding the positive things to your life rather than focusing on what you need to remove (but you can’t get rid of). This experience makes me appreciate I’m taking the time to do this for myself. This is what I call self-care. It actually feels indulgent to be fueling my body with these beautiful and healthy foods. I’m here for all of it!
