Green smoothie challenge

As you might have noticed I am very fond of challenges. One of the Instagram accounts I follow, simplegreensmoothies, starts a new challenge in October. One green smoothie a day for a month, and as you might guess I have decided to join.

As the portions in the recipes add up to two glasses, I asked my fiancé to join. He is never much into sudden change of behaviour or my health quests, but to my surprise he agreed to join!

To warm up I made a really yummy green smoothie this morning, which I will share you. The recipe comes from simplegreensmoothies.

2 cups of spinach
2 cups or fresh orange juice
1 apricot
1 cup of frozen mango
1 banana
1/2 cup of carrots (grated)

On top I added some chia seeds. The result was much better that I expected! Even my fiancé was surprised.

I will try to keep you posted on our October challenge. If you have any delicious recipes I should try please share below

Nutrition home study

A year ago I started a home study on healthy food and nutrition. Because I got so busy with work and a wedding coming up (yay!), I never really got around to it, but today I picked it up again!

Chapter for today: fats. I might spend another blogpost on it later, as it is very interesting to learn the function of fats in the body.

Did you know, for example, that only fats have the ability to transport vitamin A,D,E, and K through the body?

Enjoy your Sunday!
