Personal Healthy Eating Challenge – Day 3

Today’s menu worked out great as I decided to work until 6 PM at the last minute today so I didn’t have much time (or energy) to make a more complicated salad for dinner.  The breakfast smoothie was great too.  They really do fill me up so that I’m not hungry all morning until my salad at lunch time.  Here was my day!

CHERRY BERRY ORANGE BLOSSOM SMOOTHIE

** Does this not sound like you’re about to have a burst of summer for breakfast?!?! **

  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted*
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 cups coconut water or filtered water

Makes 2 large servings

  • 1 head red leaf lettuce, chopped
  • 2 pears, cored and chopped
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries*
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • pinch sea salt and pepper
* I used raisins instead of cranberries and they worked great

Place all ingredients in a bowl and toss…that’s it! 🙂

Nighty night and stay tuned for Day 4!
