Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

Guilt-Free and Oh So Delish!

Shrimp scampi over rice or pasta is one of my  favorite meals. It tastes so good but with all the added butter used in the traditional recipe, it’s not the healthiest meal to eat on a regular basis.  There are many rice and pasta dishes that I wish I could get away with eating every single day!  But of course that it’s not the best thing healthwise. My green smoothie life has sent me on a mission to find recipes that are healthy AND delicious! I’m all about better nutrition, but I also love GOOD food.

My Post Green Smoothie Cleanse Follow-Up Plan

Where I Am Going From Here?

So after a triumphant nine-pound weight loss on J.J. Smith’s 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, where do I go from here?   Many people finish the program with concerns about regaining the weight that was lost.  I’m no different! After dedicating the time, focus and energy that it took to get such amazing results, I have every intention on continuing with a healthy lifestyle and steady weight loss!

I’m now one week “post-green smoothie cleanse.” First, I wanted to make sure to wean myself off of it properly. J.J. Smith strongly advises doing this since immediately going back to eating meat and other “regular” solid foods can cause major bloating and discomfort, not to mention weight gain. With all of this in mind, here is what I’ve done so far along with my current eating plan.

A Delicious and Filling Low-Calorie Soup

J.J. Smith’s Fat Flush Soup is designed to assist with weaning off of the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. This vegetable soup not only contains a few of my favorites things to eat (sweet potatos, carrots and beans), it “restores the body’s acid alkaline and sodium potassium balance.” It’s packed with nutritious superfoods enriched with antioxidants and fiber that aid with flushing out toxins and fat from the body.

It does all of this plus it’s very delicious and keeps you nice and full.

10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse – Part 1

10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse Days 1-5

 Green Smoothies All Day Long

Green smoothies have been a creamy, delicious and nutritious part of my “trying to get right” objectives for awhile now.  I love a good green smoothie (check out my favorite one: AEL Green Protein Smoothie)!   A few months ago, I purchased J.J. Smith’s book, “10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse.”  This book has been creating quite a buzz over the past two-plus years because of its high success rate.  There are numerous success stories about people losing weight, having more energy and improving their overall health….all in literally ten days!

With all of this in mind, the decision to use it to get an early jumpstart on my Mid-Year, Mid-Life Glow Up Project was a no brainer.  I’m really not a huge fan of restrictive “diets,” but since I already drink green smoothies this program appealed to me. I knew that it was something that I had a good chance at completing successfully.
