Today’s guest post is from Anna from Your Healthy Place website. She writes some very inspiring articles on changing your attitude towards food and has an amazing collection of healthy recipes and cookbook with samples for you to try.
My name is Anna Wootton and I am a certified health coach at YourHealthyPlace.ca and creator of Life is About FUN, Not Food!, an 8-week program that helps women overcome emotional eating and regain control of their weight and their life.
When Katherine contacted me about doing a blog post, the timing could not have been more perfect. I am a big fan of recipes that have you in the kitchen for as little amount of time as possible, and because I encourage my clients to always nourish and fuel their body but not restrict their cravings, I was just about to get to work on a decadent green smoothie involving two of my favourite things: avocados and chocolate!
While this smoothie may not look green (it is, I promise, but cocoa’s brown tends to trump avocado’s green!), it certainly is thick, so I’m hoping the Green Thickies readers appreciate it!
In fact, because I use ground flaxseed in this smoothie (always a great addition for its Omega-3s!), the longer you leave this to sit the thicker it gets. I actually have half of this smoothie with a sandwich for lunch, for example, and then put the rest in the fridge and by dinnertime it’s thickened up so I have the rest as a pudding for dessert! Nothing like a two-for-one smoothie recipe, right?

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
