Pineapple Green Smoothie

The green smoothie saga continues. This morning we have apple juice, water, spinach, romaine lettuce, baby carrots, frozen banana and lots of pineapple. Also, maca, chia seeds and matcha green tea powder.

Yes! This is excellent!






Any body have any good green smoothie recipes to share?

Magnet poetry

Here's today's magnet poem, hot off the fridge.

Green Smoothie

I have been inspired by a lovely woman to embark down a new path. Denise Madeja of Raw Intentions is helping me begin a journey into raw food living. While I may not be 100% committed to going without cooked food or chocolate cake, I'm eating more veggies and fruits than donuts and that's a good start.

As Denise would say, "It's about making a better choice today than yesterday so that tomorrow can be the best!"

So for today, I begin with my first "Green Smoothie."



1 banana
6 strawberries
1 kiwi
1/2 - 1 cup almond milk
small handful of spinach



Last night, I cut up the banana and put it in a Tupperware in the freezer so that it would be ready to dump in this morning. I used whole frozen strawberries, so they were easy enough to toss in. I sliced the kiwi without peeling it (yay, fiber!) and threw that on top.

I admit, I did not measure the almond milk; I just poured some in. Probably about half a cup. Then sent my poor immersion blender to work. I now know that immersion blenders do not do well with frozen things. But it persevered!

I added a little more milk, blended some more, added the spinach, blended LOTS more. A little more almond milk to thin it out. And voila. Breakfast. And it doesn't even taste like spinach!





Cheers and Sláinte to all on this fine morning. Bottoms up.

Sexy Man Tattoos

This post is stolen directly from my Pinterest board, also titled Sexy Man Tattoos. (boy did that give the hubs an aneurysm when he saw it! Exactly why husbands should not be on Pinterest...)

Atlas. Nice.

So sophisticated.

Just... yeah.

Cute and only a little emo.

I actually have no idea why I find this attractive. I just do so get over it.

Who doesn't love a good sleeve?


Anyone else want to share some sexy man tattoos? Or sexy ladies tattoos?
