For the past week, I have been eating my meals through a straw and my verbal abilities have been at an all time low. It’s been torture to not speak. Even sneezing was so very painful. But...Now my mouth is starting to feel like it’s old chipper self again! I started a post on conscious eating, that I will post at a later date. Today I just want to share with you some of the juices/smoothies that I have come up with. Try them out for yourself. These were my favorites. Some of the smoothies were big misses but don't be afraid to try different combinations for yourself. I lost three pounds in the past week. I would start my day with a scramble of eggs, garlic, cream cheese and avocado. I would have a smoothie or juice for other meals or when I was hungry. For a snack I had greek yogurt with chia seeds and fresh fig jam. On good days for dinner I would make very soft pasta dishes.
I did have one friend that was able to try one of my smoothies, “I don’t know what to think of this? There are so many layers to it. What is in it?” I didn’t want to tell him, since he usually looks at me like I have five heads when he tries my typical smoothies. But I did anyway, “Apple juice, banana, blueberries, tofu, avocado, spouts and spinach”
Friend: “Yeah, that’s a lot of layers lady.”
