Green smoothie time

So far my New Year’s diet plan goes like this: get sick, lose appetite. Terrible, but effective.

We’ve all been on a rotating schedule of sickness. First some digestive thing (Harper’s first real barf, ugh.) Then colds all around, followed by more serious colds/sinus infections. I think all the stress and germs from holiday travel have caught up to us.

Anyway, now that I can eat again, I’m finding myself wanting healthier foods. I fired up my Nutribullet and made some green smoothies. The formula is pretty simple: stuff the blender cup half-full with greens, then add sliced fruit, nuts or flax seeds or some other superfood, and water. Blend it up and you’re good to go.

I’m finding that the smoothies don’t taste fantastic, but they are refreshing and they’re the kind of breakfast or snack you can feel good about.

My go-to formula has been: kale with pineapple, pomegranate seeds and flax seed meal.
