Join the Health is Happiness 30 Day Smoothie Challenge today!
The challenge is to drink at least 1 smoothie per day for 30 days so that it becomes a part of your day to day lifestyle.
The challenge starts May 1st and ends May 30th. However you can still signup after May 1st and go for 30 days from your start date. So if you are late signing up, don’t worry about it! Join us.
The emphasis is on green smoothies but not every smoothie you drink has to be green. It can be a fruit smoothie, or even a richer one made with cacao. A green smoothie is a mix of delicious fruit and incredibly delicious greens blended with water. The recommended ratio is 60% fruits to 40% greens. This will assure that every smoothie you make will be deliciously balanced. Introducing more leafy greens into your diet is how you will benefit most from this challenge!
The smoothie can be a meal replacement such as breakfast, a snack, dessert, or even a post workout recovery. Note that the suggested minimum serving size of a smoothie is 500ml. Feel free to drink more in a day, especially if it is a green smoothie!
The key element that you need to participate in this challenge is a blender. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just make sure that it’s functioning!
