So, if you’ve followed along on Facebook, you’ve heard how I’m not a big fan of vegetables this pregnancy (or last one, though the things I do like are completely different!). I like to be healthy though, so I’m finding ways to sneak them in on myself, especially now that even fruit doesn’t sound great. If you know me, you know that that is just plain crazy for me! I adore fruit! I know they say no one is obese because they ate too much fruit, but I do have to (usually) reign in how much I’d eat otherwise…it is nature’s candy after all!
Enter my new Shakeology recipe (if you can call it that!). I’m usually a plain Shakeo, ice and water kind of gal (because I’d rather eat my fruits and vegetables separately…love volume!), maybe with a flavor extract. But now that I’m just not eating them, it’s been a great way to sneak them in! And when I finish it…oh boy! I feel refreshed and rejuvenated with so much more energy than before I drank it. This is a true testament to fueling your body WELL, with the right foods. Something I’m having such a hard time stomaching right now.
AGF’s Go-Go Juice
– 1 scoop chocolate Shakeology (vegan chocolate would work well also, in fact this could go well with almost any flavor!)
– 1 cup spinach
– 1 cup frozen cherries
The frozen cherries work as ice too here…which is why if I do put fruit in my shake, it’s frozen! It can be hard to fit fruit and ice in a single serve blender cup! I love this shake, and the way I feel after it. It’s become my daily go to, at least until I feel up to more variety in my foods.
