A Day on the Green Smoothie Challenge

What does an actual day on the Green Smoothie Challenge look like? There are so many ways to take the Challenge. You may do one smoothie a day or all smoothies every day for ten days. It is totally up to you to create a Challenge that does work for you instead of trying to take a Challenge that only leads to a feeling of failure. Here is a possible day on the Challenge. This is the way many people have found success, but remember, the key is find what works best for you personally and by all means, if you are not hungry enough to consume everything listed here as often as it's listed, just drink less often.  I personally drink about two smoothies a day and have two portions of veggie soup per day and I wait and let myself get really really good and hungry b/c for me, the magic happens when I'm hungry, all the clarity of mind, new realizations and deep cleansing. 

6 am: Arise and drink two glasses of water with a pinch of salt and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

7 am: Drink your first portion of smoothie, about 16 ounces followed by a glass of water if desired.

8 am: Drink a cup of green tea, herbal tea or broth.

10 am: Drink your second portion of smoothies, again, about 16 ounces followed by a glass of water if desired.

11:30 am: Eat an apple or other fruit or some veggie sticks.

1 pm: Drink your third portion of green smoothie

3 pm: Snack on guacamole with veggie ‘chips.’ Or Maria’s Heavenly Chocolate Shake. You will find this recipe in Chapter Seven as well as Chapter Nine.

5 pm: Have some steamed vegetables, cooked veggie soup or one of my warm, raw soups found in Chapter in the recipe section of my book.

7 pm: Drink your last portion of green smoothie or have some strawberry ice cream. Try adding different fruits to it as well. My family loves peach ice cream!

9 pm: Drink some dandelion tea, pau d’arco or any tea or broth of your choosing. Add cinnamon to your tea, if desired. Another great bedtime tea is Senna. It will help you to have a good elimination the following morning. Simply steep one or two teabags for twenty minutes before enjoying. Feel free to add stevia to your tea. My preferred brand is SweetLeaf® Pure Stevia Concentrate liquid. This liquid is dark as opposed to the processed liquids which are clear. The darkness is a result of it being preserved in its natural state. Stevia comes from a green leaf. 

9:30 pm: Go to bed and get some good rest. Rest is essential for good health. Go to bed even earlier if you are able and especially if you feel tired. Listen to your body!
