Good Morning everyone! Today is starting off to be a great day and this makes me happy because I just realized it’s Friday the 13th, so maybe the bad luck won’t ring true for me after all. I woke up late today (around 9:30) but immediately looked out the window and smiled…it was supposed to be a rainy day but the weather is actually perfect! I decided to use the cooler temperature to my advantage and go for a walk. Before leaving the house I had a handful of walnuts and half of a 7-grain deli flat.
My walk was very relaxing after I got over the initial “I don’t want to be doing this right now” attitude. I took my normal 4 mile route and it took about 50 minutes. When I got home I was very excited because I went to bed last night knowing I was going to try my very first GREEN MONSTER this morning!
* 1/2 c almond milk
*1/2 c frozen mixed berries
*roughly 2c baby spinach
*3 spoonfuls of plain Chobani yogurt
*1/2 of a banana
*1 TBS Natural PB
Verdict: I loved it! Everyone was right, you don’t taste the spinach at all. My poor green monster ended up being a very purple monster due to the addition of too many berries but it didn’t matter really…it was still delicious.
A great way to end a great morning. Now it’s time to shower and start getting ready to meet my friend Hilary for Happy Hour. We are going to sample some new beers and appetizers at a local restaurant that we love. Yay!
