30 Day Challenge: “Christmas Colors” PART 1

Posted by:

Typically each month at Synergy Kettlebell Training we usually have one 30 Day Challenge that is nutritionally based to push us beyond our comfort zones and out of complacency so that we can get healthier. During the month of December we’re gonna be doing something special. We’re gonna be having not 1, but 2 Challenges. I’m excited! Are you excited? I’m excited!! YES!!!

Here’s how it’s gonna work…

From the 1st to the 15th we’ll be selecting 2 days each week where we totally cleanse our bodies. The cleanse can either be a juiced or smoothie days or complete water fast on those days. Whatever works with your schedule and abilities do that one. I personally prefer the water fast days where I don’t eat anything at all and just drink water or tea. That will give you the best results. If that’s not you then do the juice or smoothie. Now by juice I mean real juice that’s fresh squeezed by you using a juicer or smoothie blended fresh by you with your blender.

Here’s 3 Very Simple & Tasty Red and Green Christmas Smoothies recipes for you:

3 Very Simple & Tasty Red Christmas Smoothies
1. Half Cup of Fresh Organic Pineapple
1/4 of a beet
1/2 leaf of kale
1/2-1 full carrot
2. 4-6 Strawberries
Small handful of spinach
1/4 Apple
1/2-1 full carrot
1/2-1 radish with root
3. 1 Whole Apple
1 Banana
1/4 of a beet
1/4 teaspoon size of fresh Ginger root
Small handful of fresh blueberries

Note 1: I use my Vitamix and it tears everything right up. Make sure you don’t “over beet” LOL cause it will take over the flavor. Follow as the recipe suggests.  Nothing needs to be peeled. What I do is cut things up into easy to manage(for the blender) chunks and then blend away. 🙂
Note 2: Don’t be alarmed if your stool is redish. The beets do this. The first time it happened to me I thought I had a problem cause it looks bloody, but be rest assured it’s A-OKAY.
Beets are amazing for detoxing the liver.


3 Very Simple & Tasty Green Christmas Smoothies
1. 1/2 Apple
1/2 leaf of kale
Small handful of spinach
1/4 teaspoon size of fresh Ginger root
1/4 of a cucumber or 10 marshmallows – Just Kidding!
2. 2 Celery Stalks
handful of mixed baby greens
1/2-1 full carrot
Half Cup of Fresh Organic Pineapple
Optional, but recommended: 1/4 of a cucumber
3. 1 Banana
1/2-1 an orange
1/2-1 full carrot
1/2 leaf of kale
Optional, but recommended: 1/4 of a cucumber
As I mentioned, we’re gonna have 2 Challenges this month and I’ll reveal the 2nd one as we get closer. That one will run from the 16th to the end of the year. Keep an eye out and enjoy your cleanse days. They really work great to give a lot of energy and honestly aren’t as bad as you probably would think.
Keep in mind that a challenge is intended to push you and make you do things you normally would not to improve the person you are both physically AND mentally.
