I know I am going to get an email from my mother after this post, and maybe even my father, rolling their eyes and telling me I am crazy. Well, sorry fam, you're just going to have to deal with it! :)
It is now 24 days until we are back in the good 'ol U-S-A! We are going to have a very busy summer, including lots of little trips to places like L.A., Hawaii, Portland, and meeting up with our friends from Ireland and The UK in Florence! Yes, that is right, we get to show off our good 'ol state to people from Ireland! Whoop!
Anyways, the reason for this post is to inform you on a do I say this..."eating change" I am going to try. No, no, I am not going to "diet". I know I have no reason to diet, so Mom, get your panties out of a bunch! But I would like to see how my crazy body reacts to something a little different.
I have heard of many juice detoxes and juicing diets, and they have always intrigued me. So I decided to not go overboard, but make up my own rendition. I will keep a journal (here) of how my body reacts (sorry in advance for the "the toilet is my best friend" comments) and tell you any changes that occur. This will also keep me motivated and accountable for sticking with it!
Here is how my menu has turned out:

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 fruit smoothie (whatever fresh/frozen fruit we have on hand)

Snack (while the kids are at recess): Greek yogurt and homemade muesli

Lunch: Protein shake and protein bar

Snack (after school): a handful of almonds or walnuts

Dinner: Fruit and veggie smoothie (veggies= spinach and carrots) , protein shake
And if I feel like I am going to starve to death If necessary: a slice of chocolate cake. (kidding)
I am really excited to try out some new smoothie recipes like this, this, and EVEN this.

If you need some helpful hints about different smoothies recipes or what they do for your body, here is a great website/article to check out.
Of course, I will be drinking TONS of water.

Feel free to join me! :)

God bless and stay healthy!
