After yesterday's cookies for breakfast fiasco, I felt considerably snackish all day. I had approximately 8,000 cups of coffee, was cranky pants, and was so hungry by the time I started my commute home I *HAD* to stop at Wendy's for dinner.
Gross, gross, gross - all around.
So, I've decided that something has got to give. I've been thinking about changing my breakfast habits, and have recently been inspired by a number of friends plunging into diet-ville for the New Year. However, as a former dancer/diet obsessed human being, I'm not a fan of diets. Drastic does not work for me. What I AM a fan of is small, sustainable change - as evidenced by my positive experience with Couch to 5K.
This is my challenge - drink a smoothie for breakfast every day for the remainder of January - thus consuming more fruits and vegetables. Pretty easy, right? I think I can do this for a month.
First up is the "Green Machine" smoothie from Whole Living's January/February 2012 issue:
Ingredients: Romain lettuce, kale, parsley, mango, pineapple, ginger, water
The verdict: Too much parsley for my taste, but otherwise, yum.
