I was up around 5:30 this morning tending to some Glo Bakery business. I’m a bit behind in my work so the next few mornings are going to be early ones to try and get caught up. My week started off like it should- with TWO healthy doses of green!
The sun is finally shining today. I hope it stays that way because I have yet to get out for a run since my 10 mile race!
Today’s green monster is not one I would replicate…
- 2 apricots (made it much too bitter!!!)
- 1/3 banana
- 1 scoop Amazing Grass Wheatgrass powder
- 1 squirt Kyolic garlic
- 1/3 cup watermelon (couldn’t even taste it :( )
- 3 cups spinach- lightly steamed
- 1 T chia seeds
- 4 cubes ice
It sure looked pretty but it was very bitter- even after I added 1/3 of a banana. I would not recommend using apricots unless you are willing to mask the bitterness with a ton of added fruit.
Funny story I tweeted about this weekend:
Eric made my green monster for me on Saturday since I was in such a rush. I drank it and it tasted nice and everything. AFTER, I finished my GM he told me ever so nonchalantly, ‘I couldn’t get the frozen peel off the banana so I just threw in the peel along with the banana.’
Oh. My. God.
I almost died!!!!!!!!!!!!
My stomach started to churn and I swear I had stomach pains from the peel. Maybe it was all psychological, but I was not happy knowing there was a black peel in my belly! GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!
Today’s question: What is the worst ingredient you’ve ever tried in a green monster?
See you this afternoon for the winner of the Neal Brother’s Contest!
