Green Smoothie Challenge - Day 1 of 7! {Amazing Grass Meal Giveaway}


It's here, folks - April 22! The first day of our week long easy green smoothie challenge!!! And, guess what? There are well over 60 of us participating!!!

It's so simple.

Really.

You just add 1 green smoothie to your daily eats for 7 days straight so if you're not on board yet - jump on! =) Click here for more deets and to "officially" sign-up!

I know there are a ton more of you participating than have actually left a comment just from the feedback I've gotten. So, if you haven't left a comment yet letting us know you're in - do so now. :) We definitely want to know who you are! It's not too late!!!

If you're new to all of this, I understand - it can be overwhelming but it's also exciting. Whatever your background -- a newbie not knowing where to begin or a green smoothie master simply wanting a refresher course on "How To Make Your First Green Smoothie", I put together a post last week that has all that information!

Check out the below giveaway sponsored by Amazing Grass (know for it's organic green super foods!). Have at it! Winners will be selected tomorrow, Tues (April 23). More giveaways to come throughout the week!!!

The Amazing Meal (a $70 value!) is a great addition to any green smoothie! Click here for more information. :)

This Wed, coming Friday and next Monday there will be a link-up where you can share your posts and thoughts on the green smoothie challenge! This is your heads up to create some really beautiful posts (keep it real!) and share your individual thoughts with everyone. Honestly - I can't wait for these days because we get to hear from you!
