Super Smoothie

I {heart} food. Period! But I am also quite lazy about getting the right amount of fruits and veggies. I stumbled upon this smoothie recipe awhile bad and finally whipped one up today. It tasted great and I felt like I truly ate my fruits and veggies! Well, not a whole days worth but a decent amount by 10am. Iowa Girl Eats has some fabulous recipes and other fun did bits. Check out her Friday Favorites .. she has some great finds on there. I’m also loving her workout log. What a great way to be accountable for daily workouts!!

Let  me introduce the Green Monster Spinach Smoothie — I swear, aside from the spinach that was getting stuck in my teeth, this tasted more like peanut butter then a spinach salad ;)
