I woke up this morning “NEEDING” some fruit and vegetables. ASAP. A Green Monster was calling my name.
It may have had something to do with eating an entire loaf of focaccia last night in lieu of dinner. That wasn’t my intention, I just stopped by a local market to pick up the loaf on the way home, and before I knew it; GONE. But, delicious. I blame it on the 12 mile run + 4 mile hike I had done the day before. My body apparently still needed to replenish some carbs.
Anyways, on to the Green Monster. Thanks to Angela , I LOVE Green Monsters. Healthy, delicious and easy. And my friend, Heidi, swears these smoothies result in an immediate improvement in skin tone. What could be better? Well, the color could be improved. Green / black smoothies don’t appeal to everyone. 🙂
