Garlic Cilantro Savory Green Smoothie

I’ve become such a lazy blogger in the last few weeks. I definitely may have burnt myself out after the frequent juice feast posting. I’ve been playing again with a low sugar way of eating and am currently loving it! Ever since I started making savory jicama juices during the juice feast I dreamed of blending in an avocado for a creamy soup. Well the dream has finally been realized and the result was fabulous! I had a jar of this creamy goodness for lunch yesterday but I’m thinking it would also be great chilled as a side soup to a crispy dinner salad!

Garlic Cilantro Savory Green Smoothie

Ingredients:

2 jicamas

1 bunch cilantro

1 lemon, peeled

2 cloves garlic

1 ripe avocado

Run jicama, cilantro and lemon through the juicer and blend with garlic and avocado until creamy.

Blueberry Ginger Green Smoothie Ice Cream and a New Year

Happy 2013! 2012 has ended along with my 30 Days of 80/10/10 Raw Vegan and 60 days of my Tracy Anderson Fitness Challenge.

So what now?

Well, the fitness challenge continues (update: my backside is much improved 😉 ), 90 days is the current goal. And the fruity lifestyle? I can’t imagine stopping. I don’t know if this is a forever sort of a thing for me but unless I stop feeling amazing, I have no reason to do anything else. I don’t know what this means for The Vegetable Centric Kitchen, I’m just going to give it time and let the blog evolve with me. And in the meantime…ice cream!

What I Ate Wednesday

4 grapefruits and half a banana chopped up with vanilla stevia. Sorry for the lack of a real picture- I gobbled it all up before I remembered to snap a shot!


a smoothie of carrot juice, romaine leaves, avocado, cocoa, carob and vanilla stevia

Zucchini noodles with marinara and Spiced Sweet Potatoes from The Fresh Energy Cookbook

I’ve noticed when I eat more fruit during the day I don’t have a much of desire to put away half to a whole big bar of chocolate during the evening. Tonight this little nibble of raw chocolate was just right.
