Cucumber Avocado Matcha Smoothie!!!

 

I love shakes because they make my life so much easier! I can just throw some really healthy and delicious ingredients into a blender and enjoy! This is my favorite Smoothie right now! It is full of delicious ingredients and flavors not to mention fiber, super foods, all natural energy! This is a higher fat, lower carbohydrate veggie shake I also add some flavorless collagen peptides to add protein and healthy fats!

 

An “anytime” smoothie that combines creamy avocado, refreshing cucumber, and earthy, healthy matcha.

Although this smoothie can be enjoyed anytime, it makes for quite the morning-starter. Featuring the incredible flavors of creamy avocado, fresh cucumber, and matcha green tea powder, this low-carb detox smoothie will do wonders for you.

Sugar-, dairy-, and gluten-free, this recipe is also paleo-friendly. You’ll love how refreshing it is too! The three flavors really show each other off.

And then, of course, there are all the matcha green tea benefitsMatcha’s nutrients are extra-potent because the tea leaves aren’t steeped and then taken out as they are with regular teas. Instead, with matcha, the entire tea leaf is ground up into a fine powder that goes right into recipes. And, because matcha tea leaves are grown in the shade, it’s richer in chlorophyll than other green teas—making it a powerful detoxifier that gets rid of your body’s heavy metals and chemical toxins.

Besides this, matcha tea powder is extremely high in antioxidants—almost higher than any other food in the world, in fact! And antioxidants have been linked to the prevention of heart problems, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and even HIV and some types of cancer.

Matcha powder also contributes to reduced blood pressure, blood sugar regulation, lowered cholesterol, and is a great source of fiber. It’s an immune system booster that also helps prevent tooth decay. The catechins in matcha powder also help fight free radicals (which age your skin), and these same catechins also help burn calories four times faster than your body usually does.

As you can see, that’s quite a basketful of health benefits! Your body will definitely thank you after this incredible cucumber matcha detox smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces water
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 cup sliced cucumbers
  • 2 ounces avocado
  • 2 teaspoons Epic Matcha green tea powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon liquid stevia

Directions

  • Add the 8 ounces of water and the matcha powder into a blender, and combine.
  • Add the ice, cucumbers, avocado, lemon juice, and stevia, then blend on high until smooth. (You can adjust the amount of sweetener to your liking.)
  • Enjoy immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve.

HIP HIP HOOORAYYYY We finally have a BAR!!! Check this out! I was lucky enough to snag these tasty treats at the annual Team Beachbody Leadership conference in Las Vegas this year! Biting into these deliciously sweet morsals of yum yum was amazing! Finally a Bar I can trust with ingredients that I can trust!!

The Beachbody Beachbar is a combination of crunchy, protein crisps, nut pieces, chocolate chips, creamy nut butters, and fruit chunks (in the Chocolate Cherry Almond flavor) to deliver delicious, satisfying goodness in every bite.

  • Whey protein crisps — Whey protein comes from milk and delivers all nine of the essential amino acids that you need to help promote lean muscle.
  • Pea protein crisps — Pea protein is considered a quality, plant-based protein source that supplies key amino acids from botanical sources to help support muscle protein synthesis.
  • Diced peanuts and almonds — Peanuts and almonds are a source of beneficial monounsaturated fats. They also provide nutrients like protein, fiber, and minerals and add a rich, nutty flavor to your bar, and a satisfying crunch.
  • Peanuts and almond nuts — Nut butters layer in a creamy texture and provide another source of protein and fiber.
  • Chocolate — Chocolate is yummy and it also comes from the cocoa bean, which contains phytonutrients known as flavonoids.
  • Dried cherries — Dried cherries are a sweet, chewy, and flavorful source of beneficial dietary fiber and phytonutrients.
  • Pomegranate juice – Pomegranate juice adds a sweet-tart kick and supplies phytonutrients.

Announcing 2B Mindset LAUNCH DATE: Coming May 2, 2018

“I’m going to help you win the weight-loss battle once and for all!”

  —Ilana Muhlstein, MS, RDN

“Do you feel like dieting is a constant war between your desire to get the lean, healthy body you want and eating the food you actually enjoy?

I know exactly how that feels. Because I used to be 100 pounds heavier.

Until it finally hit me that what “diet” really means is deprivationThat was when I realized that any eating program based on deprivation would never work for me.

You see, I’ve always loved food and I love to eat large portions. What I needed was a diet that would let me eat and feel satisfied, while still helping me lose weight. There was no diet on the market like that — so I decided to create it myself.

I not only invented a solution to solve my own weight problem, so I could lose 100 pounds, I made it my career as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist — so I could help anyone lose weight happily and learn how to keep it off for good — and still go on living my life and enjoying the foods I love.

My name is Ilana Muhlstein, co-creator of the 2B Mindset, and my mission is to help millions of people just like you win the weight-loss battle — and better yet, end the war forever.

The system I created is a healthy approach to eating that lets you feel full and satisfied while arming you with proven strategies that will help you co-exist with food in real-world situations, satisfy cravings, and anticipate setbacks before they happen — so you can win the weight-loss struggle every single time.

That’s why I say it’s not a diet. It’s a mindset.

But make no mistake, the 2B Mindset can help you lose weight — happily — without feeling deprived or hungry, without exercising, without counting calories, or cutting out whole food groups.

The 2B Mindset addresses the number one issue with weight loss and weight management — food. Exercise is critical for living a healthy, functional life, but as they say, abs are made in the kitchen — and that’s the problem I designed the 2B Mindset to solve.”

  —Ilana Muhlstein, MS, RDN

 

I Struggled With Weight Loss, Too

I was only 8 years old when our family doctor told me I needed to go on a diet. Not knowing what to do, my parents started sending me away to weight-loss camp — “fat camp” — every summer. Can you imagine how that felt?

I’d lose weight, then gain it all back and more when I’d go back to school in the fall. I yo-yo dieted like that through my childhood and teen years until at my heaviest, I weighed 215 pounds and wore a size 20. And I can tell you, the emotional toll of that cycle was devastating.

But I’m happy to say, there’s hope for all of us if we take a different approach to food than what the best sellers and fad diets have been telling us for years.

Since swearing off diets and taking matters into my own hands, I’ve not only lost 100 pounds, I’ve done it happily — without telling myself I can’t have sweets or treats or anything else.

With the 2B Mindset I can tell you that I’m happier now and able to enjoy my life like never before — and now I want the same for you.

You Can Live Your Life and Still Lose Weight!

The good news is, the 2B Mindset is simple to follow. I have hundreds of success stories from clients who have lost the weight and learned how to keep it off using my methods.

I’ll teach you simple strategies to get you drinking more water (I always say, “More Water, More Weight Loss.”) Veggies will become your best friend, once I show you how to prepare them.

And I’ll shatter the myth that the bathroom scale is your enemy — in fact, you’re going to love the scale because I’m going to show you how to use it as a powerful weight loss tool.

Best of all, I’ll reveal the one daily habit — so simple and powerful — that it will put you in an instant weight-loss mode, whenever you try it. (You’ll need to plug into the complete 2B Mindset program to get that one!)

With the 2B Mindset, you’ll live your life, you’ll eat food the way you like it, and you’ll go to every party, and go out to dinner with confidence, instead of feeling tension and anxiety that you’re about to derail your weight-loss progress.

In fact, once you learn the 2B Mindset, those situations can actually contribute to your weight-loss progress.

Because, with the 2B Mindsetyou’ll finally be in total control of food and your body, and you’ll have all the tools you need to reach your weight-loss goals while living a full, rich, satisfying life.

I’ll teach you the purpose of the foods we eat and when and how to enjoy them for maximum weight lossI’ll share dozens of my personal recipes for healthy meals that taste so good you won’t believe how much you can eat — even my husband and daughter love them!

And I’ll lay out all the techniques I used to lose 100 pounds — and my private practice clients have used to lose the weight and help keep it off.

Most importantly, I’ll help you shift your mindset, because a positive mindset means a positive and healthy weight loss, with no more emotional eating, no more mindless snacking, and no more punishing yourself for eating food you love.

With the 2B Mindset, I have just one goal — to make losing weight simple, enjoyable, and sustainable. You really can lose weight and be happy for the rest of your life. Just imagine that!

With this program, along with the help of your Team Beachbody Coach, you can accomplish your weight-loss goals and experience the joy and freedom that come with being your best.

Once you master the 2B Mindset, it’s yours for life. Losing the weight and keeping it off will be second nature — it will be your new reality — and food will forever remain an enjoyable part of your life.

Believe me, it’s easy to lose weight when you’re feeling full and satisfied every day.

Who Is the 2B Mindset For?

  • Anyone who wants to lose weight — happily — so they can keep it off for good!
  • Those frustrated with the deprivation of traditional diets.
  • People overwhelmed with all the weight-loss products/info out there.
  • Anyone challenged by junk-food cravings.
  • Those for whom other diets have not been successful in the past.

Who Created the 2B Mindset?

Ilana Muhlstein is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist — the highest standard in the field of nutrition — and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Maryland. She maintains a successful private practice in Beverly Hills and at UCLA.

She’s excited about co-creating the 2B Mindset weight-loss program with Beachbody, which continues her mission to help people lose weight happily — and learn to keep it off. 

The 2B Mindset will be available for sale starting May 2, 2018, on TeamBeachbody.com.
