Smoothie of the Week

 photo smoothietime_zpsd9720196.jpg

Still carefully deciding what I eat, smoothies are a great way of making sure you get a good dose of fruit and veg! I prepare my smoothies in advance, pack them up in freezer bags and take them out whenever I need them. 

This one is a current favourite, made with...

Strawberries
Blueberries
Kale
Orange Juice
Bananas

It's inspired by Simple Green Smoothies (If you haven't already been exposed to Simple Green Smoothies, following them on Instagram is a must - Gorgeous photographs of smoothie inspiration!) 
How many of each fruit you put in the smoothie is up to you depending on taste. If you like your smoothie a little thinner, add more orange juice!
My mason jar lid and straw came from The Mason Bar Company the other day as well. It'll be so handy to take my morning smoothies with me to work - something I'm really looking forward to. I'm very pleased to say that my diet combined with 3 - 4 gym sessions a week are going great. My strict diet has started two weeks ago, and the gym sessions for just over a month now. I've already lost a few pounds just by doing so, and feeling great as a result. 
On Tuesday I'll be off to Amsterdam and I'm really hoping the healthy eating won't be slacking over my break away! I know how hard it can be to keep it up when you're away...

I'll be posting my smoothie of the week on here regularly, why not give this one a go?

    1. It's great! You can put spinach in too if you want - Great source of iron!
      I used to be a vegetarian for years and didn't have enough iron in my diet, so it's always good to stock up on it!!

  2. Looks delicious! I'm following that smoothie instagram now :) Try not to worry too much about what you're eating whilst you're away - you're meant to be enjoying yourself! I came back from 10 days in Malta 5lbs heavier, but lost it again literally 2 days after I got back. Just relax and enjoy it all. xx

    1. It's great isn't it?!
      I know, I'll try, but since I'm just starting to see results from the gym and have lost a few pounds, I don't want to put it back on after the hard work! We'll see how it goes!
