                         GREEN MONSTER POWER SMOOTHIE

I would like to share a smoothie from my newest cookbook, “Food for Thought” that will be available this fall. I don’t know about you but I find myself dragging around 3:30  every afternoon. If I don’t eat or drink something to bring my energy level up to hold me until dinner, I will inevitably start picking—a piece of cheese here, tortilla chips there, pretzels, toast—you get the picture. I am committed to staying strong and healthy so my choice is to make this delicious and good for you power boosting smoothie. It gives me just the kick I need to continue on with my day feeling strong and in control and it certainly holds me over until dinner so I don’t pig out. I make this smoothie for breakfast too. Just look at that beautiful color, I see green and I automatically know it is good for me! I feel great when I make choices that are healthy and healing for my body. This drink is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to keep my mind sharp, heart healthy. A drink for all ages! Enjoy!
