Green Smoothie Fast Day 1

I made all my smoothies the night before.
From left to right: breakfast, am snack, lunch, pm snack, dinner, night time snack.
The first 2 jars have these ingredients:
-2 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
-2 tsp raw maca powder
-1/2 TB agave nectar
-2 cups spinach
-1 banana
-1/2 cup pomegranate
-1/2 cup raspberries
This one was good. I am still getting used to the maca taste though. It left me feeling very satisfied and full of energy.
The second 2 jars have these ingredients:
-2 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
-1/2 TB agave nectar
-4 baby carrots
-2 leaves lettuce
-1 cup spinach
-2 clementines
-1 pear
-1/4 cup pomegranate
-1/2 cup raspberries
These were good too, but I could taste the carrots a little more than I intended too. I felt good still after having these.
Around 4pm I started to get a raging headache in addition to my massive cold symptoms and I had an hour of intermittent mental arguing over whether or not I should go get a coffee. I didn't end up getting the coffee but when I went to the grocery store to get a couple more things for smoothies I got dinner there too :( It was just too much with the cold symptoms... I caved for the comfort food.
So obviously I didn't drink the last 2 jars. I am saving them for tomorrow.
All in all I would say today was pretty successful. I am planning on going the whole day on just my green smoothies tomorrow though. :)


  1. Do you use a regular blender? I'm curious about how it breaks down the carrots.

  2. Yeah, it is a regular blender but it is a pretty good one. I put the carrots and spinach with a cup of water in first, do the "food chop" setting for a little and then do the "ice crush" setting to get it completely blended. I can't even tell the carrots are in there! :)

  3. I do water with the spinach blender is a pretty good one also, but not a Vitamix that is like $400 or anything. A nice Kitchen Aid. I do have the ice setting. I'll give it a try.
