The Dream Being Realized

Faith without works is dead.

I’ve been keeping very busy with my business over the last few weeks, I’m happy that things are finally coming together and I have faith that things will work out. I can definitely say that I understand the above statement 110%! I’m looking forward to doing great things in the near future.

Until then, I need to get back on my health and fitness regime…I’m taking some FREE classes at the local community centre for the next couple months. I’m so happy that it’s finally starting to warm up around here. If it’s one thing I love it’s going for long walks on a warm morning or a late evening stroll.

I’m back in full fitness mode as of today!

Sweet Potato Green Smoothie

I will be the first to admit that I was very skeptical about putting sweet potato in my green smoothie. I have a friend who swears by it but I didn’t have the guts to try it until now. I’m usually not a big fan of sweet potato and maybe that’s why I wasn’t really in a rush to even try it. I’m happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t too thick and you could hardly taste the sweet potato, I will definitely be adding this one as one of my go to smoothie recipes.

Here’s what I used:
1/2 Sweet Potato
1 cup Spinach
1 Orange
100g Greek Yogurt
1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon protein powder
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

Green Smoothies

As promised, I’ll be posting some of my Green Smoothie recipes as I go along. For today, I did a really quick and simple one because I was already running late for work.

I used:

1 cup of Spinach
7 pieces of frozen strawberries
100g Greek Yogurt
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

I added a few cubes of ice and I was good to go…I had half for breakfast and the other half as a snack.
