My name is Carrie K and I am one of the new bloggers for Bountiful Baskets. I am excited to be joining their team and I am even more excited to be able to share with you a journey that I recently began. In my blog posts, I will be posting healthy recipes made from the wonderful fruits and vegetables that we have gotten from our weekly contributions.
About my journey, a group of ladies in my town have decided to a “Biggest Loser” challenge. I am a BIG girl! 5 feet 10 inches tall and a week ago I weighed 278.5 pounds. My weight has always been an issue since I hit my teenage years and blossomed. I am one of the many yo-yo dieters. I lose weight and gain it back, lose weight and gain back even more. I have done all kinds of diets and just haven’t been able to stick to it. I hope that by blogging about my journey and sharing with you what my challenges and successes that I may inspire someone else to make healthy changes needed in their life as well.
The first recipe I want to share with you is one of the smoothie recipes that I like to have in the mornings for my breakfast. Most all of my smoothie recipes have two of the same base ingredients (almond milk and yogurt) but are changed to fit what fruits I have in my house. I love fruit smoothies but I need to try more of the “Green” variety.
I hope that my blog posts will help inspire you to chose healthier eating choices.
