I know I have a lot of healthy and active readers so I felt this would be the best place to ask this question since I have been looking around the interwebs and still have questions. I want to make my first green monster in the morning, but I am trying to figure out what I should put in, and what would mix well. If not a green monster tomorrow, I am definitely in the mood to start my morning a couple days this week with a yummy smoothie.
I do not have spinach in the house, well I have frozen spinach, I should say. I have cabbage and lettuce. In other ingredients I have peanut butter, milk, yogurt, bananas, cantaloupe, frozen strawberries and fresh, frozen mango, celery, carrots, hmmm.. I think that is probably about it in terms of smoothie ingredients.. But I may be mistaken.
With having those limited options in mind.. what would you suggest? I am up for multiple choices since there are lots of days in the week to try new recipes! Is spinach a must, or can I use lettuce? What are your favorite ingredients to include in your smoothies/green monsters?
The hubby and I are in a eat healthier and get moving kick and I really don't even think a green monster will appeal to him, but I may be mistaken! I am currently hard-boiling eggs to use as protein in my salad line up for the week. Which also brings up, what are your favorite salad ingredients? At the store this week I stocked up on, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, celery, onions, radishes, strawberries (love them in salads!) orange peppers, sweet peas and I think that may be it.. Can't wait for our asparagus to come in!
Give me your salad suggestions.. They seem to be my best bet for lunches everyday and I like to change them up day to day so I don't eat the SAME salad/thing every day.
Thanks in advance.. I can't wait to hear all the ideas and will try to photograph my concoctions to share with you all.. after of course I go through my trip photos and videos eesh.. Anyone else put that stuff off and off cuz you know how much time it is going to take??
