It’s a funny thing

Me, taking pictures of my smoothies.  Here’s how it typically goes down, I return from the gym, sweaty, smelly and hungry.  I wash my hands (cause gyms have germs) and get to work making my shake.  There is rarely a plan, it’s totally based on what’s on hand, what needs to get used, how hungry I really am, etc.  So I whip up my concoction, pour it in a glass and then I take a picture.  Mind you I have not yet had even a sip of my breakfast, if I did there’d be a gross residue section on the glass and, although it rarely shows, I try to take an appetizing picture.  So there I am putting the glass, here and there trying (in vain) to find a little light and I’m hungry the whole time.  Now here’s the twist, I’m not even sure the picture I am taking will be posted.  I can make a yummy smoothie but occasionally, I can make one that is seriously difficult to choke down and some days (like today) it’s a total crap shoot.  But today was a winner and here it is:

Coco chai Coco Chai

1 cup Rice Milk

2 tablespoons Chai (I used the Tazo brand – it has sugar)

1 large handful raw spinach

1 handful raw cashews

1 scoop amazing greens powder (Chocolate kids version)

1 heaping table spoon Cacao

1 tsp maca

1 scoop Vega (Vanilla Chai)

1/2 to 2/3 cup  frozen organic cherries

Blend and serve and take a picture if you want.


What are you, Nuttzo?

Purple Nuttzo:

1 cup coconut water

1 handful ice

1 cup frozen blueberries

1 date (pitted)

2 tbs Nuttzo NP

What is Nuttzo you ask?  Nuttzo is my new fun thing to dump in smoothies or smother on Ezekiel bread or spread on apples, it’s got: Cashews, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Hazelnuts, Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds and Pumpkin Seeds ALL of which are organic and full of Omega-3’s.  The other thing that’s nuts about this product is the price, it’s like $16.00, BUT it’s pretty much a meal in a couple tablespoons, so maybe it’s not so bad.  They’ve got a few other flavors like “Dark Chocolate” that have an amazing nutty blend as well- that one is calling my name…after this whole rancid peanut thing passes that is! Until then I’m good with the Nuttzo NP (no peanut).
