I am in a constant battle with diet and it is frustrating because now that working out on a daily basis and running is like second nature, I am to the point that my diet is holding me back from truly seeing the results I want for my body. I definitely know that a healthy diet needs veggies! But I'm a girl raised hating veggies! So on to the training of my taste buds. I'll try anything at this point to like a vegetable.
I decided the way I'd go about it is to make veggie smoothies with fruit as my first plan of attack. I made Spinach and Banana smoothies and loved it, but Spinach is an easy introduction for someone like me. lol.
So this week, while at the grocery store, I decided to tackle Squash. Yellow Squash for this week's smoothie fun! I learned that it is a good source of Fiber, Vitamin C and low in Fat! I am no chef, and so I couldn't decide what fruit might go best with Yellow Squash. However, I have read many food blogs that always say, just try it! What is the worst that could happen? If I don't like it, I won't drink it!
So here is my Peach and Yellow Squash Smoothie Recipe!
I finally have a Facebook page up and running for this blog where I probably will share a ton of stuff on fitness and motivation. Be sure to Like The Strong Life on Facebook!
