Ever since reading about drinking a smoothie-a-day on Healthy Tipping Point, they have been on my mind. I was way into smoothies last summer (and did a great job of grossing out my mom and sister in the process). Such a great way to knock out a few items in the food pyramid, especially the leafy greens.
In today's "blend" was:
- two handfuls of spinach
- one frozen banana
- 1/3 cup of yogurt
- 2/3 cup of milk
- half a packet of Rice Protein powder (I have a thing against soy protein.)
- 1/2 teaspoon of honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground flax
Later, I pulled some "iced" coffee I mixed up yesterday out of the refrigerator. Leftover coffee and 1/4 cup of milk in the fridge? I actually have no idea if this is how iced coffee is made, Starbucks definitely does it better. I'll Google it and get back to you.
|The PB that was in here before was really good! :)|
In other Mitten news, next week is Spring Break here. What!? I am going on an Alternative Spring Break trip, but I'll bring back lots of munchings for you.
