Joining the Green Smoothie Bandwagon Giveaway

A few weeks ago my boss got me started drinking green smoothies.  We didn't have any recipes and some turned out better than others.  I found myself not enjoying them very much and quit!  Then a little while later Hilary Greenleaf contacted me to look at her new book:
The New Green Smoothie Diet has changed my whole opinion on green smoothies.  It is well written, easy to read and packed full of useful information and great recipes.  She includes simple recipes for Green Smoothies to help with various issues you might have such as:
*Weight loss
* Increse energy
* Fight heart disease
*Boost your immune system
*Protect against diabetes
*Make skin and hair beautiful
Thanks to Hilary I am back on the Green Smoothie bandwagon and plan on sharing my journey and findings with you.  This week my boss and I are starting with the detox. 
Yesterday was day one.  The basic detox recipe is delicious.  I will let you know how I feel after my three day detox!!

  4. Here is one of the reviews

    This is a great book! The recipes are delicious! Hilary explains why the recipes are good for you, and cites many studies. I love green smoothies! I recommend this book to anyone who wants a healthy way of life. I especially like how she uses Guava in her recipes. The guava recipes are pretty unusual -- unique actually.

  5. I am a gfc follower.

    One of the issues the book addresses is detox which I am always trying to do.

  6. I recently had my third baby so I could definitely use help with increasing my energy.

  7. I would like to try green smoothies to get off that last 10 pounds that are stuck on me. Also to detox and more energy. I need thyroid help as well!

  8. I read the reviews on Amazon and like that the recipes are supposed to be easy and with few ingredients. I need simple!!!

  9. I would love to read this book. I've been making green smoothies for a while, but would love some more recipes! Also- I like you on facebook :)

  10. I have friends that do the smoothie diet and i have wanted to try but never know where to start. I think the areas that would help me would be the detox and weightloss. I am a follower of your blog, I like you on facebook and i posted a link on facebook =)

  11. I would love to increase my energy. I've tried a few green smoothies but I'd love some recipes. Thanks for all the great ideas!

  12. I'm in! Now the hard part- narrowing down my issues! You know me, Tiff. I need a lot of help! Lol. Really, though, I'd be interested mostly in the detox part of it. If I don't win it, I might go out and purchase the book myself. Let us know how the detox goes for you. :)

  13. I'd most like to Fight heart disease and Protect against diabetes!

  14. I would love a copy of this book! I tried a green smoothie a few weeks back but my boys turned their noses up at it. I would love the recipes to help with weight loss and increased energy.

  15. I want a copy of the book to help me get started. I have heard of the benefits of green smoothies & I reall need some of the cleansing & even more the energy benefits. Super proud of you ya!

  16. Super excited for you that you are feeling so great. I am needing a serious detox and boost of energy. I am a believe that it is best to get your vitamins in their natural form (veggies/fruits) so I have wanted to start with green smoothies for a while. It is a little overwhelming though to read all of the info out there so this book looks like it would be a great place to start! Good luck to me :)

  17. This sounds interesting and maybe the perfect time for it as my brother is housesitting and hubs is on nights so I will be just making dinner for me and the kids. Thanks!

  18. Several of the reviews say that they are really easy to make and I LIKE that! Plus kids even like them!

  19. Hey, I have been on diet for 3 months now. I would love something that would give me energy and make my skin & hair pretty!! Iwould also love my son to drink it too. I would love to win one of these books!!!

  20. I have been on a diet for three months now & I haven't felt very good. I read the benefits that come from these shakes. I would love to have more energy and my hair & skin to be beautiful!! I am single mom & I would love to be back to the weight I was before I had my child. I need something that is natural with no chemicals in it. And this sounds wonderful!

  21. I was just Googling Smoothie Detox and came across your blog. I am attempting a detox now. I started by replacing 1 meal with a smoothie for a week, then 2 smoothies, and this week it's replacing 3 meals with a smoothie. I chose smoothies because I don't have a juicer. I'm on Day 2 right now and I really want to add solid foods like apples, celery/hummus and oranges. The issues I hope this book would help me with are weight loss, detox, increasing energy and making my skin and hair beautiful. I already have some breakouts and I read that it could be a sign of my body detoxing.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
