Super Green Smoothie

This started as an experiment because I wasn’t feeling that healthy.  I didn’t anticipate how much I was going to enjoy this smoothie.  Now, I have one of these every two or three days and I look forward to it every time.  I was skeptical because I knew that it wouldn’t be sweet but it’s

Warrior Diet – Week 2 Photos

Two weeks in the books, and I feel like I am really hitting my stride with the Warrior Diet.
