Green Every Meal Challenge!

THIS week we offer the Green Every Meal Challenge!

It may be one of your toughest challenges to date!  St. Patrick's day is TUESDAY!

The majority of people around the world will be drinking green beer and eating green-colored everything.

Your Challenge: Instead of drinking the loads of artificial colors and flavors, we're going to celebrate by eating something NATURALLY GREEN at every single meal this week.

Yes, this challenge is for EVERY. SINGLE. MEAL! 

We all know how important it is to eat our greens…and this is the perfect challenge to become aware of how many greens you truly ARE eating each day.

It's the chlorophyll in the plants that turn our food green.  And…this little chlorophyll molecule is pretty amazing. 

When consumed, it will increase blood cell production, improve oxygenation, detoxification, and circulation in your body.  It's also known to help prevent certain types of cancer.

Green vegetables and fruits are loaded with vitamins and minerals that go to work in your body. 

And what's probably MOST important, your energy soars, your skin glows, you satiate faster and eat less, and overtime, you develop a leaner body by eating green food (naturally green food, green food dye in beer and processed food doesn't count here)!

This challenge is going to take a little planning and prep work. 

Some ideas for green foods to add to your plate:

  • Avocado, Artichoke, Asparagus
  • Green Apples, Kiwi, Grapes, Limes
  • Arugula, Spinach, Kale, and other Greens
  • Broccoli, Celery, Cucumber, Zucchini
  • Don't forget herbs like Basil, Parsley, & Thyme!

If you have any other favorite greens, share with other Adventure Boot Campers on the private facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CincinnatiAdventureBootCamp/.

Are you up for the Week One Challenge?
