Going green...

This week at the grocery store I decided to pick up a package of baby spinach in addition to the normal package of mixed greens. I picked them up to use in my protein shakes and to increase my intake of green goodness.

Tonight after work I made a quick green shake before I hit the gym. I used 2 cups water, 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 a banana, and 3 big handfuls of spinach. All of it went into the Vita-mix, and out came the lovely green drink below. Be sure to note that radiant light beams are coming from the cup- it is not a coincidence- it is that good!

I know you're thinking- 'It looks a bit like swamp water.' I promise it tastes great! And it kept me well fueled during my upper body workout, and my 30 minutes of intervals!

All the doors that I had to close,
Everything I knew but I didn't know,
Thank God for all I missed,
Cause it led me here to this...

  1. Haha, I love the light beams. ;) Green monsters are one of my favorite ways to sneak in a little extra veggies and fruit into my day! :D

  2. Jen, I've been trying to find that cookie recipe that I asked you for, but I cannot find it. One of my students just finally passed his first test all year! So, I promised him some cookies if he passed, so now I have to follow through!
