Our Fall Back to Health Challenge participants have completed 3 whole weeks of the challenge today. These 30 day challenges are our favorite because we see real, long term change. Many participants never really leave us after the official 4 weeks is up!
This smoothie recipe from week 3 might just be our new favorite. (We know we say that a lot - because it's true. Until another new favorite comes along... which happens often because our recipes are just so good!) Coffee and chocolate - could there be anything better?
