I've had one every day for over a week and I've discovered something. It's a secret, so you can't tell anybody. Promise?
Eating good food makes you feel good.
Can you believe it?! What a novel thought! I'm glad I could teach you something new today :)
Over spring break, I've had a green smoothie for breakfast or supper every day. It's quick, easy, tasty, and is great fuel for your body. I've had more energy and just overall feel better (aside from this stupid sinus crud) since I've started eating more real, minimally processed food. The addition of Greek yogurt helps to make this filling enough to be a meal.
Here's my "recipe" if you're interested.
Green Smoothie (about 2 servings)
4-5 cups fresh spinach leaves
1-2 cups water
8 oz. plain Greek yogurt
1 ripe banana (to sweeten...honey or agave nectar could surely be substituted) (Use a frozen banana for a thicker, colder smoothie.)
about 1 cup frozen fruit (mix and match whatever you want)
a few ice cubes (if you like the texture on the icy side)
