Thank goodness today is already half over! I’m ready for the middle of the week to be here – we have another fun / exciting weekend coming up, and I’m tired of waiting!
My eggs/grits/fruit held me over until around 10:30 so I drank my green smoothie to hold me over until lunch. Perfect! I can’t really explain why I like them so much or even really explain the flavor, but I love them.
Sorry for the lunch repeats, but you might as well get used to them for this week :) I’ll try to switch some stuff up just to keep it interesting – the pictures may look monotonous, but I love the flavors going on!
Today I brought some of the barley/corn/bean/tomato mixture and topped with a sliced roma tomato and 1/4 avocado. The bites with big hunks of avocado were the best, so I saved a few to have with my last couple of bites.
I also had more broccoli today. I cooked one of those steamer bags of the broccoli and it makes a lot! I have more to use for lunch tomorrow, too. That makes it easy for me though – I just bring this container in on Monday, heat up what I want and put it back in the fridge for the next day. One less thing to worry about packing in the morning!
and another apple – this was okay. Not the best apple I’ve had, but it did give me some crunch.
So far, I’ve had a lot of green in my day!
- green smoothie
These green smoothies I’ve had the past 2 days got me thinking.
I am going to try to have a green smoothie every day that I can in June and see what differences (if any) I see. I say “every day that I can” because I know we’ll be out of town a few weekends so I probably won’t have the materials/equipment to make one. But, I want to see if these really do make me glow! Plus, they taste great and I love that I’m getting in a good dose of nutrition in such an easy way.
Are you drinking the green? If so, have you noticed any differences?
