Have you ever tried a green smoothie? I used to think drinking something bright green was only for people who work at Gold's gym or go on yoga retreats.
I like to eat healthy, but I'm not a t-totaler when it comes to eating organic-gluten free-dairy free-vegan-blah-blah-blah. (Some of you just gasped in disbelief and pictured me lying in a hospital bed.)
However, I have discovered that green smoothies are the answer to my dilemma of not getting enough fresh fruits and veggies into our diet! Judah asks for a "moothie" every time he spots the blender on the countertop.
Here is our afternoon snack:
Spinach or Kale (2 handfuls)
Carrots (I use 1 handful of baby carrots)
Orange, peeled (we often use mandarin)
Pear or Apple (no core)
Blueberries or Strawberries (as much as you like!).
Blend it up and enjoy!
(I LOVE our Kitchen Aid blender, if you're in the market!).
