After dinner on Friday night, Mike dubbed me the most awkward person on the face of the planet whenever someone talks to me about my blog. I don’t know what it is, I am a-okay to talk about it with pure strangers aka other bloggers at events but I turn into a blubbering freak when anyone I know asks me about it. I think it stems backs to me being self conscious when I started writing. Heck if we are being honest, I didn’t even tell any of my family or friends except Mike that it even existed for a few months. I was too caught up and worried about what other’s would think, if anyone would even read it, and the “right way” to post.
I guess the irony of all this and Friday’s awkwardness is that today marks my 600th post on my little piece of the world wide web. I wanted to thank you(even YOU my silent, non commenting readers) for always being there for me when I needed you. I hope you know that I am here for you too. You have given me somewhere that feels like home no matter where I am posting from. I treasure each and every one of you and if it was humanly possible, I’d hug y’all. Just don’t ask me about my blog in person. Then you will get some crazy girl who can’t speak clearly. Jokes, you can.
More often than not these days, my morning has started with a green smoothie. Okay so it’s more of a mucky color but ya know nothing Instagram can’t fix.
Since I have been making the same one over and over for a few weeks now, I think its safe to say it’s my new go-to. I have to say I really am proud of myself that I have even been making them because I tend to get in my breakfast ruts and sometimes I’m just too lazy to lug down the blender. One of my favorite things about smoothies is that the fixings are endless, but here is what my little piece of detox heaven includes:
-one cup frozen kale(I ginormous bag from Costco is like $4)
-one cup water
-one peeled lemon
-1/4 frozen cup mango
-1/4 cup pineapple
-1/4 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup greek yogurt( I used Brown Cow)
I used the organic/nongmo version of everything listed above and surprisingly it’s fairly cheap if you shop at Costco, Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Yep, I am one of those that willingly goes to like ten different stores. I think I might be addicted to grocery shopping. I mean I was obsessed with Super Market Sweep as a kid so it makes sense. Of all the places Whole Foods surprised me the most because everyone makes it out to be so expensive but if you shop it right and use their coupons, you and your wallet can make it out alive.
I plan on doing a grocery haul and break down costs for you all very soon. Stay tuned!
What is in your go-to green smoothie?
