Salad~In~A Blender ;)

I’m always trying to fit more greens in my diet (to think I’m the mama who rarely ever ate veggies before Atkins). I have been eating a lot more since I started Atkins. With the Whole30 I was eating even more. Most all my carbs would be from vegetables.

Now that the W30 is over I decided to blend up some veggies because at times I have a hard time eating a variety. I kind of stick to the same set of veggies. Currently I have been eating cauliflower for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It taste so good when you shred it, sautee it with onions, salt, and pepper. Yum!

Here is what I call my Salad-In-A Blender. I had it with my lunch which consisted of almond flour coated chicken cooked in ghee and served with my cauli-rice.
Veggies
Here is what I put in it:
  • Handful of spinach
  • cilantro
  • 1 med. tomato
  • juice of a lemon
  • 2 celery sticks
  • Arugula
  • 1/2 tsp Himalaya salt
  • MCT Oil
  • water
I blended it all up and enjoyed a refreshing semi smoothie.
Blender Salad
The Ninja that I have doesn’t get it super smooth. There are very small pieces.
Green Machine Veggies
About two months ago my sister Cynthia gave me some clothes. Sadly they didn’t fit, so I put them with the other cloths that didn’t fit toward the back of my closet. Well yesterday I tried one on and it fit. Today I thought I’d try the other one on. It matched my green drink, hehe.

A month ago it was tight, I didn’t even bother buttoning it all the way. Today I was pleasantly surprised that the top is loose.
Whole30
I also have a shape again too. Before the Whole30 my waist was more straight.

Today is my 2nd day post Whole30 and I haven’t had a desire to add anything other than my packet of Truvia in my once a day iced coffee.

My ghee is almost gone so maybe next week I’ll try adding butter and see what happens. I do plan to make more ghee though.

Tonight I need to make:
  • Make mayo
  • Coconut Creamer for my coffee
  • Soak some steel oats for the family (hopefully some day we’ll give up the oats too. I need to do some more research)
  • Put roast in the crock-pot

  1. Wow Lou, you look great!!! The shirt looks nice on you. The other one too.

    My blender does that too. I have my eye on a Vitamix, but I am sure it won't be any time soon. :(

    Keep up the good work!
