Red, White, and Green

Posted Apr 23 2009 5:25pm


This has been a whirlwind week! Parrish and I are now engaged. With the help of friends we packed up our house in Wilmington and with the help of more family and friends, we unpacked in our new house in Chapel Hill. All within a week! It goes without saying that eating gluten free is tough, but when all your foods are packed in boxes that are…where?, eating anything besides potato chips and chocolate can be a challenge.

I spent all day yesterday unpacking our kitchen. And when I woke up this morning I felt like I could really use some color. Oats and pancakes are beige. My Rice Chex are beige, which I eat with Silk Soymilk (also beige). I was thinking of making a colorful omelet, but then I remembered The Green Monster.

Bloggers everywhere have been trying the Green Monster, but I first read about it over at Oh She Glows, one of my favorite blogs. The mixtures are different, but this smoothie was so good!

1 cup Vanilla Soymilk

1 cup Orange Juice

One dollop of Oikos Vanilla Yogurt

3 handfuls of Spinach

2 strawberries halved

Colors: Red, Green, Orange

The orange juice with the vanilla gives it a dreamsicle twist! I will def make this again, but I think I’ll add a little hemp powder for fiber.

Mmm frothy. Sweet and satisfying.

Congrats to Katrina for winning the Oikos coupons and vouchers! I guess your luck has changed! :)

Alright, off to do more unpacking!! Thank you guys so much for your comments and emails congratulating Parrish and I. I’m a gluten free bride to be!
