Christmas Green Smoothie Challenge

Today marked the first day of my first Green Smoothie Challenge – to drink one green smoothie per day in the 12 days leading up to Christmas, and the 12 days after Christmas.

The festive period is more often than not, associated with indulgence. High up on that list is, for many people, food and drink. What with all the Christmas parties, home baking, and edible gifts, many people find that they gain quite a few pounds over the Christmas period. Not only this, but many people often then find it extremely hard to then shift those extra pounds in the new year – hence why I came up with the Christmas Green Smoothie Challenge. Not only does a Christmas challenge involve far less pressure than a January crash “detox”, but embarking on a green smoothie challenge in the days running up to Christmas which can be stress-filled – rushing around in the cold, shopping, cooking, attending drinks parties and having a little less sleep than usual, means that your body is given a generous dose of vital vitamins and minerals to help keep colds, and dare i say it, hangovers at bay.

This isn’t a diet, or detox, it is simply an encouragement to add all things green into your daily diet. You can still eat your regular foods, but drink one fresh green smoothie per day, preferably first thing in the morning. Drinking one green smoothie per day will help your immune system and may even keep those sugar cravings at bay – why you may even stop at just one mince pie!

Participants will be receiving a daily inspirational email from me with additional recipes, some great yoga poses and healthy eating and living tips.

I will be posting photos and messages throughout the challenge, and for anyone that is participating I would absolutely love to hear how you’re getting on. Feel free to email or leave a message or photo on my facebook page.

Lots of smoothie love,
