Today is “Carb-up” day! Wondering what that means? Well, it definitely does not mean pizza, bread, and hamburgers! To give you an idea…during the week, my daily Carbohydrate intake is 60g with 90g of healthy fats and today (Carb-up day), it changes to 246g Carbohydrates and a mere 20g of healthy fats! It’s basically the opposite of what my meals usually consist of during the week – mostly protein, lots of veggies and a small amount of fruit – so I always look forward to my Carb-loading days to try new raw smoothie recipes! This is what I made for lunch, and it was surprisingly filling and kept me going all afternoon…not to mention extremely delicious and naturally sweet!
This smoothie is 100% RAW and soooo good for you. If you try this, I’m sure you’ll want to treat yourself to this one again, and again!
