So. Friends. I am a sugarholic. I love it. I crave it. I eat far too much of it. I've let myself slip into a very unhealthy pattern and I need to break it. As a jump start, I've decided to devote this week to a detox. My friend found a plan that worked well for her, so I thought I'd give it a shot too. This morning for breakfast I made my first ever green smoothie. And guess what? I actually liked it. And so did Audrey. Oliver thought he had died and gone to heaven. I literally pried the straw from his vice grip.
Would you like the recipe? Yes? Here you go:
2 bananas (fresh or frozen)
2-3 large handfuls of baby spinach
1 celery stick
1 C. water
Now that we're all feeling good and healthy, we're headed out to a walk along the river. The sun is shining and it's far too nice out to stay inside this afternoon.
