Good Morning Greens

Friday is a dangerous day.

Friday afternoon, after a long week of words and dishes and more dishes and words… I feel very deserving.

I feel like I deserve a double cheeseburger with short ribs.  I feel like I deserve a negroni or several.  I feel like I should see how many Oreo cookies I can fit in my mouth… just so I know… in case anyone ever asks.

Maybe I am deserving of such indulgence.  Maybe though… maybe I’m just eating my feelings a little bit.  Real life.  I’m just being honest.

Here we are staring Monday in the face.  I’m ready for something green… and something a little less short rib-y.

A few months ago we talked about juicing.  It’s totally a thing.

Takes some fruits and vegetables, mash them through a grind-y thing, drink the juice and hope it tastes good.

Today’s Apple Cucumber Celery Kale Ginger Juice definitely tasted great!  Not like short ribs… but that’s good, right?

Let’s talk green, and you don’t even need a juicer to do it!

Spinach Kiwi and Chia Seed Smoothie.  Spinach is totally drinkable, even without a juicer.  Spinach grinds into a smoothie like a dream.  Hidden greens.  Not so hidden.

Kale Spinach and Pear Smoothie.  Doubling the greens means super-hero status.
