My First Green Smoothie

I’m a veteran green juice drinker but I had my first green smoothie yesterday as part of the Brightspring 10 Day Detox.

Watch the video to see what I thought (and please excuse my 5-year-old cameraman):

Does it look yummy to you??

Day 1 down, 9 days to go! The good: I felt physically quite well yesterday. No gastroparesis after lunch like I usually get. Also, the food I ate was all really yummy. The bad: I was a little bit hungry, and ended up going to bed super early to take my mind off it (although that is just as well since I was exhausted today).

Make sure to check out my “Before” picture and read more information about the Brightspring 10 Day Detox.

  1. Ok, this post is perfect timing for me…we are about to do this in a few weeks after I get back from a few trips, and I am checking out the detox. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I have been wanting to do this for a while but I hate being hungry! Makes me cranky but I do love green smoothies.

  3. I just realized that bikini season is almost here. I want to try a detox like this!

  4. I tried a detox once before and it was just so bad for me. I was cranky and hungry and I had the worst headaches :/ I didn’t completely the detox, but I do love me some green smoothies! I usually make mine with Kale, but I’m going to try spinach soon. Good luck on your detox, I hope you have better results!

    • I actually haven’t been hungry today at all, but I think it’s because I had avocados in my salad at lunch — all those good fats kept me full.

  5. Good luck for the next 9 days. You’re stronger than me for even attempting this, haha.
