Going Green.

Bracelet: Stella&Dot, Skirt: me

I jumped on the juicing bandwagon around Christmas time when my husband hinted that he might possibly like a juicer as a gift.  My eyes lit up and I'm sure he knew exactly what he would be receiving under the tree!  I still really enjoy juicing, but I have quickly realized the high sugar and low fiber that the juice contains.  So, when I saw Kristine and heard of the green smoothie challenge I decided it was time to try my hand at those.

You need to get your mother, sister, sons, and daughters drinking green smoothies!  Seriously, they are the most delish concoctions on Earth and you're getting a serving (or more) of spinach/veggies. I have been drinking mine for breakfast and they keep me satisfied until midmorning when I take my students to lunch.  Not just that, they taste so much better than a typical breakfast.

My favorite concoction so far this week has been banana, mango, spinach, and skim milk.  I've been playing mix-master and trying out my own flavors.
