Ok, I don’t usually like to drink ANYTHING unless it’s a medium Diet Coke, light ice. I think I have trouble savoring anything liquid. I tend to gulp it down, and be done with it. Honestly, I don’t like drinking my calories. I don’t count calories, I’m just saying I feel more satiated when I eat whole foods, as opposed to liquid form.
But… I have a secret that I’m letting out of the bag. I want to start maybe making smoothies or juicing this summer to incorporate more vegetables into my eating. Shhh. More about that another time.
I gathered my ingredients.
Well, after I pulled this stuff out of the fridge, & photographed it… the blueberries and boysenberries were just calling out to me. So, I added them in! 🙂
Mix & Blend & Voila….
Anyway, I started gulping it as per usual. So, I stopped. Paused. Realized I had no time to enjoy the smoothie mindfully.
So, I drank it a bit more mindfully a few hours later. I enjoyed the taste and texture of the smoothie. I think I don’t really need the honey. It may have been a bit too sweet.
Overall, I enjoyed this experiment. I’m anxious to figure out how to add veggies into the mix.
Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? What are your thoughts on juicing? How do you drink beverages mindfully? Any tips?
