On another note, I made a fun discovery on... you guessed it... Pinterest! I'm obsessed, I know. Did you know that most Mason jars (or just plain left over glass jars) fit your blender? They turn any blender into a Bullet Blender. I have started Month 3 of the Fast Track, where I have removed all grain and legumes from my diet. I've never gone this long on the Fast Track and I am finding my hunger level has greatly decreased recently. Oh, and I got back to my goal weight of 143 last week! Yea! I thought I would go back to the regular Belly Fat Cure then and add back limited grains, but I didn't feel the need to... strangely. So here I am, grain free, at my goal weight and feeling really good (aside from an annoying cold/allergy). So I decided to take my cool Pinterest Blender trick and my use it with Jorge's Bug Juice. I'm skipping a meal here and there when I truly do not feel hungry, but I love the idea of getting my veggies in. Although tonight my youngest son said "Why do you make that when it tastes awful?" What? Did I say that? I must have, because kids just repeat what they hear. It doesn't taste awful, but it doesn't taste like birthday cake either. But I won't be eating any birthday cake, so cheers to Bug Juice.
My current recipe for Bug Juice (it has evolved with time):
- Handful of blueberries
- Large handful of fresh spinach
- 1 Celery stalk, cut in half to fit in the jar
- 1/4 Cucumber (if you have it, I have not lately)
- 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
If you are new to this drink, you may hate it honestly. But I like it and had it quite often my first 6 months on the BFC. I am trying to have it more often again and repeat the foods that I think helped me be most successful. I swear I get a booth of energy from this drink when I have it in the afternoon, and just plain makes me feel good. Happy Weekend!
