We are starting our 21 Day Challenge tomorrow. Last year I lost two pounds in the first week and I was already feeling more vibrant. One thing that really improved was the feeling of calm I had. I am sure that came from greatly limiting caffeine from my diet. I really love my Matcha latte, but if I drink too many of them in a week the caffeine finally starts effecting my person and I can feel agitated or easily irritated.
So, this year I am cutting out caffiene again for the first half of the event which means I will need a pick me up! This smoothie is a real winner! It is fruity and refreshing, plus I added protein to add extra nutrition for my body.
Ningxia Red is a must for my daily dose of antioxidants, so it is a great addition to any smoothie. Did you know antioxidants slow down aging! Yea, serve me up some of that!
