I'm on cholesterol meds at the ripe age of 4-0.
That was a wake up call for me. A big one.
So, I'm walking at least 4 days a week before work in the school gym.
I'm keeping a food journal (I'm only writing down what I eat...not counting anything).
I'm doing what I can to eat more fruits and veggies.
You know. The stuff we're supposed to do.
On pinterest, I found this (click the photo to visit the original blogger's post)....
OK. Let me be honest. This looks absolutely gross. Like pea soup. I don't like pea soup. The idea of drinking this made me think about how I could slip in a shot of something to ease the pain of choking this god-awful looking thing.
It's really good.
Like REALLY good.
Here's my Real Deal review of the Green Smoothie.....
- Easy to make
- Directions are easy (I mean, it's a smoothie. There's nothing hard about this)
- It is all fruit and veg: banana, 1 cup of frozen fruit, handfull of spinach and water. I use a smoothie packet from the grocery (in the frozen juice aisle) and it's a lot cheaper and easier for me portion wise.
- The blogger has great FAQ's like, "If you don't like bananas, try this...."
- I couldn't find one!
Imagine how surprised I was that this was excellent and so easy to make. I make up a weeks worth of smoothies, and freeze them in 1 cup containers. I take it to work and have it for a mid morning snack. I love good food that is easy.
I promise. You don't even taste the spinach.
Cross my heart.
