A handful of you mentioned that I could try green smoothies to get in more greens. DUH! Why didn’t I think of that?
Well I did, but the thought of buying the raw spinach was not appealing. But once it was in my fridge, taking a big handful and putting it in the blender was no biggie. And like I’ve been telling other people for ages – you really can’t taste it!
Under the greens went approximately:
- 1/4 cup OJ (for iron absorption!)
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
And on top went:
- Cville Cluster crumbs
- Morning O’s
- shredded wheats
- Coconut butter, which I melted in the microwave and then poured on to form a magic shell!
It was purple from the berries, but this tasted divine!! Hopefully as the weather warms I can drink smoothies again. And hopefully as the weeks tick on my palate for salads will return!
Have a great morning!
