We all make mistakes
And I sure made a doozy of one this morning.
I started drinking “Green Monsters” at the start of the new year. I have known about them for a long time, but just never got around to putting spinach in my smoothies. Well, I’m hooked on my version of a “Classic Green Monster” now, and have been drinking one just about every morning for a couple of weeks. However, this morning I work up feeling the tiniest *start* of a cold coming on (the kids I work with have been sniffling and coughing for almost a month now!), and I wanted to try to up the vitamin content of my GM. Enter a packet of Amazing Grass Choco Superfood. In the interest of full disclosure – I have tried this before in chocolate milk, and it was very tolerable. I won’t say that I loved it or anything. But tolerable, yes. More so than I expected. However, putting the packet into my morning GM – BIG MISTAKE. It tastes just awful. I have been sipping on it all morning, off and on, trying to get it down. It tastes like I am sucking on a multi-vitamin!
I’m going to finish it. I’ll be damned if I am going to waste it – and hey, it’s part of my breakfast and I don’t have any other options now. But… blergh. I WON’T be making that mistake again.
Angie’s Green Monster
1 heaping TBSP of Flax Meal
1 c. 2% organic milk
2 c. baby spinach (raw, and tightly packed)
1 frozen banana
handful of ice cubes
Blend your little heart out, and drink up. It’s quite tasty. Honestly. Just leave out the Superfood.
