Clean Eating Challenge: Day 40!!

Saturday, June 30
Day 40

 

 

 

Breakfast – Green Smoothie #29 – Strawberry Banana – today was the last day of the Green Smoothie Challenge – I had 29 smoothies in 30 days…not bad! I will definitely be continuing with the Green Smoothie – I totally loved them, and to believe 31 days ago, I had NEVER had one…Thanks Amanda for organizing this challenge and introducing me to the Green Smoothie!

Lunch – McDonald’s Breakfast Burrito Combo – no drink – on our drive north to visit my parent’s for the weekend, we stopped at McDonald’s to grab lunch – totally not clean:( and was kinda surprised at just how unhealthy a breakfast burrito could be…totally shocked to find out one sausage mcmuffin with egg has less calories and fat than two breakfast burritos. As you can see, my meal was a whopping 760 calories and 43 grams of fat…can you say d.i.s.g.u.s.t.i.n.g!
