Hello my nerdly beautifuls!

Lately, I've been struggling to eat healthier and have been paying more attention to how what I eat affects my body which has consequently made me make a few changes to my diet, starting with having smoothies for breakfast, eating less carbs, more veggies and more proteins! See I've known this formula for a while now, sticking to it is the difficult part for me. But you know what they say - Never stop starting because one day you'll wake up and find out that you've finished. So for the umpteenth time, here goes...

I'm also hoping that sharing some of my favorite recipes with you guys will help keep me accountable, and in the spirit of Valentine's Day, I'm starting this series off with a delicious and filling pink smoothie! :D

Level/Type: Easy/Breakfast/Smoothie Yield: 4 cups Prep: 10 mins Blend Time: 5 mins Total: 15 mins

INGREDIENTS

1 cup strawberries 1 avocado 1 lemon (squeezed) 1/2 cucumber (or 6 slices) 3 slices of beet (a small beet - some people steam the beet first, but I didn't because my blender could handle it :) ) 1 apple 4 large ice cubes 1 cup water

PROCEDURE: Add all the ingredients into the blender, and blend on high until the mix is smooth. If you want it sweeter, feel free to add another apple or a liquid sweetener.

And, that's it! Please let me know if you have any questions OR more suggestions on smoothies I could try out! I'm all ears (or eyes, I should say ;) ).
