Living la vida verde



I’m on day 3 of a ten day challenge that ends July 31. The goal is to drink one of these Glowing Green Smoothies a day ala Kimberly Snyder.

So, I’m a little late in the game to ask you to join me, but it’s not like the expiration date for feeling good is August 1, right?

If you’d like to join me in this challenge, I’d love it!

I’ll be doing this long after the end of the month since it has served me so well this far. I think I shared before that these shakes have been part of my formula for losing 22 pounds which isn’t quite half way to my goal but it’s the steadiest progress I’ve made in years and I feel awesome.

I know we’d like to not be about the numbers, but those numbers are part of how I measure my success because they are directly linked to lowering my BMI which of course is a legitimate factor in my overall health.

This beautiful graphic by Kimberly breaks it down for you and her site has the recipe and instructions as well.


I love these green shakes so much I made FOUR gallons to bring on a one-week vacation. Not coincidentally, I also enjoyed playing in the lake with my boys, spending the whole day in a swim suit and water skiing for the first time in twenty years. (How. Is. That. Possible.?!)


For details about the challenge or to learn more about what’s up with the green shakes, visit Kimberly’s page here.

The gist is:


1) Follow along and actually drink the #GlowingGreenSmoothie each day.

2) Post a daily photo on Instagram or Twitter – to track your progress and commitment.

3) Use the hashtag “#BeautyDetoxChallenge” and tag @_KimberlySnyder

I’ll be posting more soon about how I’m incorporating some of Kimberly Snyder’s concepts into my world. If you want to read along with me you can order her books at your local indie bookstore or through my links on Amazon by clicking on either of the cover images below.

Also … if you’re in the market for a Vitamix, I highly recommend them and get a few bucks if you give them my code so let me know.
