Personal Healthy Eating Challenge – Day 10 – Final Day!

Ooops…forgot to post this yesterday!  I got 3/4 of the way done and then life happened.  Well, here’s my day yesterday!

Today was another beautiful day weather-wise!  I always find it so much easier to eat lighter (aka less) when the weather is warm compared to when it’s cooler, so I’m taking full advantage!  Here was my Thursday.

BERRY KALE SMOOTHIE

Makes 1 serving

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries of choice*
  • 1-2 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 cup packed kale
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 pitted medjool dates
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup filtered water or coconut water
* I used mango and strawberry for myself and blueberry and strawberry for my man

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth and enjoy! 🙂

SPINACH AND STRAWBERRY VINAIGRETTE SALAD (OIL FREE!)

Makes 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh spinach*
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
  • ¼ cup raw pecans, toasted
  • ¼ red onion, sliced thin

* I used spinach and red leaf lettuce, just to mix it up 🙂

Dressing Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp Dijon mustard

Combine the spinach, strawberries, onion and pecans in a large bowl. Blend the dressing ingredients in a blender or bullet. Drizzle on salad, toss to coat.  Enjoy! 🙂

This is my official last day of my personal challenge (as I’ve finished making all of the salads), but don’t worry.  This is not the last of me!  I will be continuing to post about food and other wellness related activities I will be trying, as well as bits and pieces of my journey trying out 21 Day Fix by Beach Body (and my journey as a new coach for them!).

Happy Friday everyone and have a great weekend! 🙂
