I bought a large container of spinach recently so I’ve been thinking of ways to use it other than in smoothies. I’m not one for cooked spinach usually so I’m going out of my comfort zone a bit. This morning … Continue reading
To help curb all my night munchies of candy cookies and crap I decided to do some healthy baking. I have a bit of a baking gift, I don’t really need to follow a recipe and things generally still turn out amazing. I decided to try to make some protein brownies so that I could fulfill whatever I was missing that keeps making me overeat at night. Also I figure that if I overeat something with decent nutrients in it, that is better than just eating junk.
Yesterday I made a yummy smoothie that had a ton of spinach in it but I couldn’t taste it at all so I called it “I can’t believe it has spinach” smoothie. (Next time I make it I will take a pic so I can post a complete recipe). Then in the evening I made up my breakfast smoothie because I had a really early morning today so all I had to do wad give it a quick burst on the blender.
I used a recipe from Vega’s fb page but altered it slightly due to personal taste and what I had in the kitchen. It was meant to be a red velvet smoothie but it really tastes like beets.
It’s still pretty delicious, but I really like beets. It’s interesting how your taste buds change as you start to eat clean. I am two weeks in now and I feel wonderful. I’m tired right now but that’s because I have a demanding travel schedule this week but I’m getting as much rest as I can while still making my health a priority.

I made this one about a week ago from the Vega Facebook page. I can’t direct link to the recipe so I will re-post the recipe with a link to their page. There are lots of recipes and many other excellent tips and other things on there. I am doing Thrive Forward among my other education and support for my new lifestyle and I can’t recommend Vega and their products and education highly enough. Vega has always been my go-to when I need to get my nutrition back on track.
This soup was incredible and I didn’t make nearly enough of it, next time I will have to make a double batch. Recipe follows after the break.
