If it wasn’t for the smoothie, I’m not sure if I would be able to get through My 12 Week Fitness Challenge.

Every morning, one of our rituals is to prepare a smoothie for our mid morning meal. Here’s what goes into our smoothie:

Frozen Berries, tons of frozen spinach, 1 banana, flax oil, protein powder and a touch of orange juice.

If you’re looking at making smoothies a part of your diet, I highly suggest getting a heavy duty blender. We use a Blendtec and love it! I’ve also heard that Vitamix blenders are even better. A good blender will run you $300 to $600 but it’s well worth it. We’ve been using ours for 3 years now with no problems at all.
