Ok heaviness gone- on to the smoothie for today...
Spinach (i know I need to switch it up) peaches, red grapes, strawberries, orange, banana, flax seeds
I know you cant see the peaches but they are in the bottom peeking out, strawberries, and red grapes ( 2 NEW INGREDIENTS-WOO HOO!!!!)
Oranges- this still kinda makes me laugh because I still wouldn't go but an orange and peel and eat it but sticking one in my smoothie is almost a daily staple
Same goes for the banana- I just really like the texture that it brings to my smoothies
Blend Blend Blend
Oh and see these things with the number on them??? They are called speeds and if you hit them instead of the start button your smoothie will have a different texture. Who knew?? (I bet the makers of the vitamix knew and that they probably tried to tell me in that manual thing that came with it, but we have already established today that I am not very good about reading directions!).
Can you just see the difference in the smoothie quality here? Much better that the liquid goodness I have been drinking for the last 20 days. Today's combo I would recommend to anyone!!! It had a nice fruity flavor but I stuck a TON of Spinach in today too. And on a side note Dave took his smoothie to work at the fire station today...would love to hear what he told them it was :) I am so happy to be able to share this with him and to improve out health and family by just changing what we eat (drink) and how we do it. It really is a simple little change to implement. Now my next major road block will be Ashley, but I have renewed confidence since Dave is on board. Wish me Luck (because I will need a lot of it!!!)
