The Green Smoothie Experience

Brace yourself, because this may shock you...

I've been working out every day.

I know. It's crazy. Unbelievable. But true! Granted, it's only been a week, but I'm still proud! I guess since it's summer I've just had more flexibility with my schedule. I'm making time to go to the gym!

Anyways, when I get home from the gym, I'm hungry! But I never really feel like eating, ya know? Like, why would I go to the gym and work out, then come home and eat a full meal? It just doesn't seem right. So instead, I make a smoothie!

It's amazing how much fun a blender can be. This green concoction is made up of, well, whatever I could find in the fridge. I started with a handful of spinach, cause I've heard that goes well in smoothies. There were some strawberries, a few pieces of pineapple, a few grape tomatoes (like I said, whatever I could find in the fridge...), a scoop of vanilla greek yogurt (that was all that was left), some regular vanilla yogurt, and almond milk to fill the blender to 3 cups. That made two pretty delicious servings of what I will now call... The Leafy Love Smoothie.

I made that up just now, so the name's not set in stone...

So there's my creation for the day. And man, was it good after a long hard workout. FatGirl kicked my butt with her squat routine...

Happy crafting!
