Now and then a person happens upon a little something that is a potential life changer. Sometimes it’s something big- sometimes it’s not. Last week, I happened upon a little something that could be potentially major! What you ask? (Drum roll here…) Well, a bright green smoothie recipe of course!
While spending some quality time on the frightfully addicting Pinterest site, I happened upon the simplest of smoothie recipes. A smoothie that packs in nearly a day’s allotment of the recommended fruit and veggies? Are you kidding me?
I headed to the store and bought the ingredients. Spinach, check. Frozen peaches and berries, check. Bananas, check.
For those of you lost at spinach, don’t fret. I like spinach and even I was hesitant at first- but, determined nonetheless, to whip up this green concoction and head down the road to better health.
I tossed the ingredients in the blender, added some water and voila! A bright green smoothie!
I slowly took a sip and much to my surprise and relief, it tasted A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Could it be that simple? Blend a few ingredients that pack such a MAJOR health punch? You bet!
And while my body isn’t sure exactly what to think of the sudden daily flood of nutrients, it is adjusting rather nicely. I’m on day eight of the green wonder drink and I feel pretty awesome. Give it a try! Your body (and taste buds) will love it!
