clean eating & blueberry smoothie

By 6. May 2013 From my kitchen

summer is pretty near… and with it also most girls’ fear: the summer body… ahem, i know, silly topic… so let’s make this short and painless. this year, i plan to (finally… for once) focus on getting in shape. it’s not about loosing weight, mainly. it’s mostly about feeling more healthy. i’ve always fancied the clean eating trend. so i spontaneously declared the month of may to be devoted to clean eating.  
but what does it mean, clean food? a simple rule of thumb for clean food says “don’t eat anything with more than three ingredients in it”; i.e. eliminate processed foods, focus on vegs and fruit, grains should be whole, less sugar. i can totally do this.
since there are quite a few (good, but not very diet conform…) dishes (read: desserts) posts in the pipeline – and of course we don’t want to miss these – i’ll still continue to post regularly. and at the same time, i’ll keep you up to date about the clean eating endeavor. sounds like a good deal? 
let’s start with a smoothie, to get us into the right swing…
blueberry smoothie

1 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana
1 cup soy milk
1 tbsp. almond butter
1 tbsp. chia seeds (and / or flax seeds)
optional: 1 tbsp. maple syrup
put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth (smoothie, eh, you get it?). this might take some time since the frozen berries can be a little stubborn… season with maple syrup, if you are a sweetie.
