To be honest, they remind me a bit of Slimer from Ghost Busters…
Or Gak (remember that goopy stuff used to slime people on Nickelodeon?)…
As ugly as they are, green monsters sure do taste G-O-O-D.
I had one of these heinously delicious smoothies for breakfast and now feel awake and aliiiive.
I swear there’s something about a green monster that makes me feel rejuvenated.
My green monster contained:
- 1 frozen banana
- Two large handfuls fresh spinach
- 1 scoop All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 tsp. Bob’s Red Mill xanthan gum
- 4 ice cubes
- Ice cold water
I downed this smoothie following a 5 mile run with Sadie this morning. I think our run made me extra hungry because after a quick shower, I enjoyed a small second *much prettier* breakfast.
For breakfast number two, I topped a cup of Dannon Greek yogurt with fresh raspberries and blueberries.
I think berries are the most beautiful food on the planet. Their vibrant colors, interesting shapes and juicy appearance make them oh-so-attractive. (I’m alsoloving that berries are on sale right now!)
Sometimes one breakfast just ain’t enough!
Question of the Day
What food do you love that’s completely unattractive?
I think my plate on Thanksgiving is perhaps the ugliest sight in the world. I love to stir everything together – the turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, peas and stuffing – until my plate basically looks like vomit. It’s so good, but looks so gross.
