Announcing . . . The 2013 Spring Green Smoothie Challenge

#7daygreendrink

It's that time of year-- spring cleaning and detox time! To make it a little, ok a LOT more fun - I'm hosting (along with some other totally amazing bloggers who you will meet in a minute!) the Spring 2013 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge!

The goal of this green smoothie challenge is to prove that healthy choices can be delicious and fun - all at the same time! And, to do it in a really simple way - by just adding 1 green smoothie a day for 1 week!

Feel free to share the trailer and tell all your friends and family about this wild and "green" world online party that starts 2 week from today!!!  

Ok, time to meet the fabulous co-hosts! If you are looking for recipes throughout the challenge and real life feedback -- here is the answer!!! These girls are here for ya!!!!!

I am totally in once again! I loved adding green smoothies to kick my year off with and I've gotten out of the habit.

anothercleanslate said...

I've never done smoothies before, but I have a couple of weddings to look good for in the next month so going to jump on this bandwagon! Nervous!!

Sweet and Savory Eats said...

I'm really thinking about joining this! I already make a couple of "green" smoothies a week, so why not 7?

Samantha (at) Life Style Love said...

I'm SO in! I found the challenge over at Kristine's blog and left a comment saying I tried a smoothie with kale ONCE and it was disastrous. But what better way to "try, try again" than partake in this challenge! I really look forward to getting some new green smoothie recipe ideas and sharing the experience on my blog. Thanks for hosting :)

Christina McGuire said...

Hi Katherine!

I just started following your blog. Love it. I am also starting to blog about my adventures in food & health. My mother ignited something in me when she taught me what organic vs. non organic entailed and what a GMO is! I will be adding your button to my upcoming post and doing this challenge with you (since I pretty much do it every day anyways!haha )

All the best,

Christina McGuire

Hope you stop by! :)

Heather said...

Awesome idea; I'm in! I love trying out different combos for smoothies....but I often wind up letting my greens go bad before I make full use of them in smoothies. This will be a fun way to be accountable to using up my food, making sure to get in more nutrients, and getting ideas for new (to me) smoothie recipes!

Sarah said...

I'm in!! So excited!! :)

Stephanie said...

In! And I'm glad it starts on Monday, the timing couldn't be more perfect. I'm about to travel to PA to celebrate my grandma's 90th birthday and I'd already decided that after that trip, I needed to pay a little more attention to what I was eating. I definitely need a bit of a sugar detox and starting my day with a green smoothie will get me on the right track.
