I have decided that I have been eating too many starchy vegetables over the last two weeks and so this week I am having a green food week.

The whole week is dedicated to eating and juicing anything green.

To see what I ate you can read my blog post – 7 day plant eating week

So this morning’s juice contained

  • Half a broccoli floret
  • Half a parsley (pot)
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 celery
  • Half a bag of Spinach
  • 1 granny smith apple – I am using them now that I know more about the benefits of Granny Smith apples

It was very green and very delicious. That lot made 1 litre of juice.

Lunch was a wholewheat tortila with watercress and spinach in it and some tahini. That was really delicious.

Other foods I will allow during my green food week are:

  • Asparagus
  • Leeks
  • Kale
  • Cabbage
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Courgettesgreen food week
  • Spring onions
  • Parsley
  • Watercress
  • Avocado

Non green foods allowed

  • Onion
  • Peppers
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Mushrooms
  • Whole wheat tortila

The only things not allowed are starchy vegetables. I will see if this will make a difference to what is going on in my body right now.

My exercise routine is going well at least. Following the Beach Body DVDs and having a plan to follow really helps. I think one of the most frustrating things about exercise for me is knowing which exercise to perform each day.

The Beach Body exercise plan takes the guess work out of it plus it has some great food advice and recipes.
