I am so happy!  I may have encouraged another friend to start drinking green smoothies!  Not just anyone…someone, I didn’t think would come over to the green side.  He has been jokingly asking me to make him a green smoothie — and today, I did.  Delivered to his door.  When he finished, he said it was “awesome and he may just have to hit up the grocery store for some greens.”  Now, that just made my day!  So, what was in this smoothie?  Unfortunately, I have no pics to show because I was rushing – yet again – but it was:

1 cup spinach

1 cup kale

1 cup chard

1/2 cup pineapple, frozen

1/2 cup mango, frozen

1/2 an avocado

1/2 lemon

a touch of almond milk

You will notice that I added more greens to my smoothie today.  I had a great email from someone gently telling me to up my greens.  Challenge accepted. :)  So, I filled my entire blender with greens to the top and blended that down and then added everything else.  Didn’t even notice there were more greens.  Score.  Absolutely delicious.

Tomorrow, I should be back on track with taking pictures and adding a little extra to my posts.  It’s been a busy few days for many reasons.  One of the reasons was a workshop I ran tonight on Nutrition 101.  We had a great turnout and although I was somewhat verbose and kept going on tangents; I think it went well.  Next week, I will be having a workshop on stopping your sugar cravings.  If you are in the Groton-area, please consider attending – the more the merrier!

Oh…and I did make a smoothie yesterday too — in fact, I made two!  How is everyone else doing?
