Every year we make New Years resolutions but do we all really follow them? No. I think the majority of us tend to make drastic resolutions which aren't realistic and in the end we just forget them altogether.

This year I resolve to be more health conscious. I didn't want to lose a certain number of pounds, put a number on how many times I went to the gym in a week, or promise that I wouldn't eat cupcakes. Let's be honest, I'm gonna eat that cupcake. Really, it was all about being mindful and trying to incorporate better behaviors and foods into my diet.

This week I got onto the juicing & smoothie train. If I can pack a bunch of vegetables, fruits, protein, fiber, and omega 3's into one cup, I am all for it!

I have been making a lot of recipes that I pin on pinterest. I'll be sure to post more of the lucky winners that get a spot in my recipe book. For now, I leave you with the green smoothie that I posted on my instagram, you can find the original post here.

1 frozen sliced banana
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 cup 0% Vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
(or any other kind of milk)
4 cups baby spinach (or more, or less)
Side Note: I also added a bit of honey 

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
