Green Smoothies 2 Days in and My Urge For Soda GONE

5 Mar

Healthforus I started drinking soda pop when I was a young child.  My mother was a Pepsi addict, and of course at the early age of 16 as soon as I got my driver’s license I was constantly stopping in at a convenience store to grab a soda.  And we all know what happens when you stop by the convenience stores, you buy all sorts of crap to put into your body.

Soda Pop is loaded with bad chemicals, and chemicals that make you addicted.  The artificial brown coloring alone is made by reacting corn sugar with ammonia and sulfites at high temps.  This is horrible!  And you wonder why you just cant quit!

Now that I was a bit older and no longer had that high metabolism, the weight gain and health problems started to show up.  I felt like crap every single day.  With headaches, leg aches, heart-burn, dizziness, etc., I decided I HAD to make a change.

My sister had told me about Green Smoothies before and I had asked much about them.  I thought she was just crazy.  Then she brought it up again and I was ready for it!  I was ready to hear what they were going to do to change my life!  I ran to the grocery store one after noon to pick up all the contents I would need to make my first Green Smoothie.

When I got home, I mixed together water, spinach, strawberries and a banana and I fell in love!  It was SO SO delicious!  Never in a million years did I think I would enjoy it, but I did!  My kids all were with me as well and I served up a round for all three of them.  The twins were so – so on it.  But my 10 year old loved it!  She begged for me to make one for her to take to school with her!  How crazy is that!

Needless to say, I made another smoothie the next morning, and didn’t need the soda that I had in the fridge.  I had NO DESIRE for it at all!  How AMAZING is that!  If Green Smoothies did nothing else for me, they finally kicked my whole desire to run out and grab a soda!  That is a success story in itself!
