I am on Day 8 of my Get Fit February and only on Day 3 of my Beachbody Challenge Program (the program I chose is the Insanity + Shakeology) and I am feeling great! I am already noticing a huge difference in how I feel! I am noticing that my clothes are fitting a little better and I just have a ton of energy! Currently, I am working out between 3pm-4pm when my girls (one month old and three years old) are sleeping. I do the workout in my living room. I also have been eating so much better. I plan to share with you a few of the things I include in my everyday diet that I love. In case you missed it, check out:

Today I’d like to share with you an easy “Ready made smoothie” that you can make. You don’t need a blender, you don’t need ice. I am showing you this because if you are like me and always on-the-go, this is already available in the stores and easy to throw together. If you’d like to try to make your own, feel free! Soon I will start making my own smoothies with fresh fruits and will be posting those as well. All you need are the following:
- Bolthouse Farms Antioxidant Rich “Green Goodness” Fruit Smoothie
- Bolthouse Farms Immunity Support C-Boost Fruit Smoothie
The Green Goodness has 13 servings of fruits & veggies per bottle. You can find the following ingredients in this smoothie: Spirulina, Chlorella, Green Tea, Broccoli, Spinach, Barley Grass, Wheat Grass, Blue Green Algae, Echinacea, Garlic, Jerusalem Artichoke, Lemon Bioflavonoids, Nova Scotia Dulce, and other vitamins.
The C-Boost has 3 3/4 servings of fruit per bottle. It’s made up of 2 1/2 Mangos, 50 Acerola Cherries, and 1 1/2 Apples.
Now, the reason why I paired these two is because I can’t really get the Green Goodness down unless it has another flavor added with it that I can taste over the Green Goodness. When I make my “smoothie” (I say that because they are already smoothies in a bottle) I use about 75% Green Goodness and 25% C-Boost in a glass. The C-Boost is enough to give the Green Goodness a good flavor so that I can drink it without having to hold my nose! 😉 I have one small glass each day.
If you are brave enough, you can drink the Green Goodness alone, but I am not that brave. I did get an entire bottle down once on a road trip but that was the first time I had it and didn’t want to waste it! Try pairing these two together for a great taste and great health benefits!
