….for a Green Monster Drink! :)
Sorry guys, I hate to do this to you, but I have to show you my latest breakfast concoction!
It is so sunny and beautiful outside today! One thing I love about our winter’s here is the sun. It can be cold outside but we usually have a nice sunny day to help us by. It does wonders for my mood the past few days! :)
My injury is doing better :) I am actually quite proud of myself for completely staying off of it for this long. Like I said before, the longest I have gone without exercise in the past FEW YEARS has been a couple days. Hard to believe, I know. I think that is why I was so down and out about taking a break because it really is so much a part of me and who I am. To me working out is like brushing my teeth– it gets done whether I want to or not! ;)
But more on the injury later….
Back to breakfast: This drink was actually tolerable. :)
- 1 huge organic Kale leaf
- 1 peeled cucumber
- 10 organic baby carrots
With carrots and cukes:
I drank it as I got ready this morning. That is the great thing about smoothies/juices! Quick and Easy!
Taste test? This was actually one of the best yet! I think the carrots really added a lot and made it sweeter.
Next on my wish list? A JUICER!!! A Vitamix Juicer to be precise! whahaha. Go big or go home!!!! :D Maybe they will send me a free one to test out on the website? lol. A gal can dream….! ;)
I am glad everyone liked the Freshman 15 posts so far! I will keep ’em coming! Stay tuned later today for more on the Freshman 15, a recap of how I am doing while injured, polls, a food product review (arrrrrr matey!), some fun books that arrived in my mailbox, quotes, fun and much more!
Did you know?
Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds, and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotenes. Carrots’ antioxidant compounds help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer and also promote good vision, especially night vision.
