I make a "green" smoothie. Here's my recipe for it:

Base:

2oz frozen spinach

2oz frozen blueberries

30g (or about 1 scoop) Isopure banana cream Protein Powder (or any flavor)

1 eyedropper vitacost liquid vanilla stevia

16oz Water (or coconut milk or Fairlife fat free milk)

4-6 ice cubes

Nutrition with water as the base: 140 cals; 25g protein; 6g carbs; 2g fiber; 4g net carbs; 4g sugar naturally occurring

Variations:

6g whole psyllium husks (makes it thicker and lasts with me longer before hunger) - 21 cals; 5g carbs; 4g fiber; 1g nt. carb

6g vitacost Peanut Butter slim powder - 22 cals; 3g protein; 1g fat; 2g carbs; 1g fiber; 1g net carb

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and water as the base: 183 cals; 28g protein; 1g fat; 13g carbs; 7g fiber; 6g net carbs; 4g sugar.

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and 8oz Fairlife Fat Free Milk and 4-8oz water as the base: 263cals; 41g protein; 1g fat; 19g carbs; 7g fiber; 12g net carbs; 10g sugars (this would last me for 2 meals at least).

I know for DS you can have extra fats, so maybe add 1 tbsp or 2 of whole peanut or almond butter rather than the peanut butter slim powder. You can also add coconut oil if you feel like you have to have it or I sometimes add 1/4 of a ripe avocado.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
