This morning I tried my hand at my first Green Monster! I dusted off the blender and brought it out of its high hiding cabinet. Been along time since I made margaritas, which is really the only thing I ever use a blender for. I have a little hand blender that I use to make smoothies, but I didn't think it'd handle the spinach well.
For my green monster I used a handful of spinach, about a handful of frozen mixed berries, 3/4 of a banana, some Trader Hoes PB, some soy milk and a little chocolate organic milk. It turned out really well and I shared it with Harper. She was a big fan.
Harp has a cold, so no gym for me today. Boo. I hate when she is sick, poor kid woke up with boogers all over her face and a bad stuffy nose. So, I will have to resort to a workout DVD today. Maybe a short run when G gets home from work. I am going to run to Whole Foods and find some of the amazing grass stuff for my monsters, I am going to try and have them for breakfast most days. I definitely want to work out a way to get more veggies in there. What do you put in your Green Monster?
We liked Food Inc. It was what I expected. Very well done and thought provoking. The problem with movies like that is that they are preaching to the choir. If you watch Food Inc you are likely not the type chowing down on all the processed crap, you are a more thoughtful consumer. I wish there was a way to make people watch it who truly no nothing about our factory farming nation.
