Confession time: I'm a total geek. Not necessarily in the traditional sense, but I do weird things like time how long it takes to do daily chores. Mostly I do that so I can convince myself that folding that $%@*&^ basket of laundry really won't take that long. I hate folding laundry. I don't mind washing it but resist folding it...but I digress.
Anyway, I timed how long it took me to make my smoothie today. This is from the time I opened the refrigerator to the time I took my first sip. It was a whopping 7 minutes 55 seconds. That includes going to the garage refrigerator to get some ingredients that were buried under other stuff and responding to a text from my husband. Peeling the papaya took the majority of the time.
But, before I tell you about today's smoothie, let's look at yesterday's. It was another savory one.
Day 8 Green Smoothie Habit
1 cup kombucha tea
1 small zucchini
1/2 bunch bok choi
1 celery top
spoonful of chia seeds
It was quite acidic between the tomatoes and kombucha, which was good because I had it as an afternoon snack and had been craving something salty.
Day 9 Tropical Green Smoothie
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
3 leaves chard
Today's smoothie was a fruit one based on The Raw Family's 15 Green Smoothies in 3 Minutes video.
I'm more than a week into my new habit and overall it's going well. I feel like I'm waking up more easily and my energy level seems pretty good. I keep forgetting to weigh myself, but I don't think there's much change which is a bummer. Of course that might be because of the blackberry cobbler a couple nights ago and the brownies last night.
