Upcoming New Year Nutrition Kick-Off / Sign-Up for the Challenge!


The past two 7-Day Green Smoothie challenges were smashing successes simple because I got to see you guys having fun with healthy habits. With the new year fast approaching, I'm hosting another 7-Day Green Smoothie challenge as a fun way to kick off 2013!

The 1st of the year is a great time to pump some green nutrition in our bodies! I will be linking to the blog posts that you send me along with recipes and some fun tips. :-)


Rules are the same at last time. :) Just one! Add one green smoothie to your daily eats for 7 days straight.

I will list all of the participates on Day 1 of 7 for the 2013 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge on Jan 1st! so be sure to leave a comment below to participate and be apart of the fun!

This sounds great, but are there smoothies without dairy products? Most I have seen in the past have yogurt in them and (even though some people with lactose intolerance can) my stomach can't tolerate it. I am a soy/almond milk drinker...could I substitute that in some? Let me know, I would LOVE to join you!

Katherine - Real Food Runner said...

Hi Kaleigh, It's absolutely possible to make them dairy free!

Here's a link to a tasty recipe I made using almond milk:

Hope you'll join us!

@ Addy - Hey, girl! It's totally fine to start a few days after everyone else. The main goal is just to do it!

Hey Katherine! :) You can sign me up again! I'm pretty busy this next week with moving up to college, so I know some green smoothie action would help me keep up the energy and help with the transition. :)

Katherine - Real Food Runner said...

@ Kat - sounds great, girl! Can't wait :) Hope everything goes well for you!

I am totally up for this challenge! Now to go arm myself with all the necessary ingredients

Stephanie said...

I did the first challenge with you and I'm going to do it again. But I don't have any spinach in the house right now so this may be a six-day challenge for me. No matter, I'm looking forward to being more 80 and less 20 as far as my "everything-in-moderation" diet goes.

Katherine - Real Food Runner said...

@ Ash - Awesome, girl! You got it :)

@ the bakers sheet - great! if you need help with recipes shoot me an e-mail - I'm happy to suggest :)

@ Stephanie - fantastic! so awesome to have you doing this, especially since you were part of the original group back in March! Don't feel pressure. Just do what you can - that's what this is all about!

Sarah said...

Dear Katherine,
I just came across your lovely blog. I started running a few months ago and love it more and more (one new year resolution of mine is to run a marathon in 2013 if everything goes well...but most importantly: not to lose by passion about running). And with my increasing activity level I discovered that my eating habits changed naturally to more healthy and"clean" stuff. So your blog really appeals to me.
And as I had my first green smoothie two days ago (thats really true), I am also in for this challenge - looking forward to your reicpes. Sounds like a good start for 2013. I hope I´m not too late ...
Wish you happy new year,
Sarah

Katherine - Real Food Runner said...

I'm on my 6th day for the new years challenge and will start on the spring challenge next week. It's never too late to eat (drink) healthy. It doesn't feel like a challenge because your recipe mixes are delicious. Thanks.
