Rachel’s 30-Day Vegan Smoothie Challenge

During my prep for my first bodybuilding competition, I was stuck eating oatmeal every morning.  It paid off in the long run, but after my competition, I was ready to mix it up a bit.  I wanted to add some variety and flavor into my morning, so I created a 30 day challenge for myself:  create an easy, healthy smoothie recipe each morning to kick off  the day.   I had a lot of fun planning out the next month of recipes.  There were so many options and combinations and a quick Pinterest search produced a plethora of ideas.   Here are the combinations I came up with:

So what were the results?

Well, first off, it was much more refreshing to start the day with a new flavor than eating the same thing morning after morning.  I love that eating clean and healthy doesn’t have to be boring!   Second, I felt satisfied and energized to start the day.  Smoothies never weigh me down or make me feel sluggish.  And lastly, I was able to take on another grueling workout the next day with little soreness since the combination of carbs and protein ensured optimal recovery after my gym session.

From now on I’m swearing by my smoothie-a-day routine!
