going green...for your health

Some people have trouble drinking their vegetables. I am not one of those people. My mind does this funny thing when it knows something is good for us. It turns on a little taste good switch and poof…

MPITHW (most people in the world): “Ewww. Liquid kale…nasty.”
Emily: “Liquid Kale. Hmm. Looks weird. Tastes awesome.”

It’s just the way it rolls.

Now, I’m not going to try and convince you that this smoothie is ever going to taste like dipping thin mint Girl Scout cookies in a glass of milk while you watch reruns of Friends at midnight on your couch. This is never going to be that for you. This green smoothie is for people who wake up in the morning and want to punch today in the face.  In a kind way, of course. Violence is not a part of this smoothie shenanigan.

So here’s what you do if you don’t like to drink green vegetables…you take one for the team. You remember that if you want to live long and healthy and eat lots of Girl Scout cookies, you have to balance it out with green things. So you do it, you put your healthy pants on and you get out your blender.

Who knows, you may even start to like it. 

Green Smoothie:

1 C. water
2 C. kale
1/2 C. pineapple
1/2 banana
1/3 granny smith apple
1/4 C. orange juice
1 TBS. wheat germ
pinch of fresh parsley

blend it up for a couple
of minutes. enjoy one
now & one later!
