I left with 2 pounds of blueberries and the complete confidence that I would eat all of them. He obviously doesn’t realize […]

A Few Screws Loose

IMG_8957

Good morning! My morning started off a bit sluggish, but it was nothing a Green Monster couldn’t handle. In the GM: 2 handfuls spinach, 1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop Vega choc-o-lot, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup oats. After breakfast and a bit of digesting, Eric and I headed out for […]
