Show Me Your Smoothie

That sounds risqué, huh? 😉 More on that in a sec.

How’s your Indian Food Wednesday been?

Mine has been bueno, and I have some lovely slow cooker eggplant curry cooking up 😀 It will be waiting and ready for feast time after Zumba.

If it tastes like it smells, I’ll share the recipe with ya’ll tomorrow 😀

Today, Ashley and I hit up the Farmers Market and the pool (gloooorious) and I also ran some errands. Every week I schedule a low-key day (with less training appointments) so I have an easy day amidst the craziness. Today was my day 🙂

Some eats:

*Confession: I’m really boring with smoothies. I love them so much, but I do the same thing over and over and overrrrrr…

Same thing with juices.

Look familiar?

green juice

Yup, because I have it ALL the time.

When it’s totally cool to stick with what you know, it’s really easy to get into food ruts and get bored. I’ve also gotten about a thousand requests for a smoothie and juice reader’s request and thought this would be a good way to share awesome recipes, since I’m a repeat smoothie recipe offender.

So it’s time to


Send me a pic and ingredients for your favorite smoothie or juice combo. Try to pick something *fun and different* so we can share some great combo ideas! Just email your pic and ingredients to fitnessista at gmail dot com and I’ll do a massive fun post with all of them on Monday morning, April 19th.

Sound fun?? I think so 🙂

Time to Zumbaaaaaaaaa <3

    My daily smoothie usually consists of (but varies slightly)
    homemade Kefir, 1/2 banana, chia seeds, cinnamon, 1/2 apple, 1-2 cups spinach, 1/2 carrot, 1/2 celery, chunk of cabbage, blueberries, strawberries, mango, few cherries.
    It’s a lot, and sometimes it’s all of it, sometimes it is a few of these. I love the vitamix! Makes veggies unnoticeable!

    yayy smoothies! I have one pretty much everyday and I like to think I have it down to an art…I always always include spinach (1/2 to 1 cup), almond milk, and chia seeds. For my berry chocolate smoothie, I add frozen strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, to that plus 1 t chocolate powder, cacao nibs and a few vegan chocolate chips just for fun 🙂 For my tropical smoothie, I start with my spinach, almond milk, and chia again, and add 1 scoop sun warrior brown rice protein, frozen mango and frozen peach! They are both amazinggg and I feel so energized after drinking them! You can’t taste the spinach at allll and they don’t look green, though i would totally drink them even if they were green 🙂

    I have a smoothie almost every morning.. I mainly do these and throw in french toast oats sometimes (Thanks May). My smoothie has 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 2 T flax, 1 T chia seeds, half scoop of vanilla protein, 1 banana, 1/2 cup of fiber one cereal, and then frozen strawberries =) mmm mmm delish.

    On occasion, I will make up a carrot and pumpkin smoothie with everything from above minus the nanner and berries, plus cinnamon…
