I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Green Monster

I am not, nor do I think I will ever be vegan, but ever since I discovered the blog Oh She Glows and all the vegan recipes (including my favorite sweet potato and black bean salad recipe) posted by Angela Liddon, I've been hooked on Green Monster smoothies. You can visit the Green Monster Movement website for some recipe ideas, but making up your own concoction as you go is my favorite thing to do. 

I was so surprised at how tasty and naturally sweet these smoothies are.  I never really expected leafy greens to blend so well.  I wake up an hour earlier than I have to just so I can sit around and eat my breakfast, but a green monster is the perfect thing for mornings when I sleep in a bit too long and need to grab something on the go.  I just pour it into a travel mug and I'm ready!

I should probably learn how to take visually appealing pictures of food...

My favorite smoothie:
1 cup vanilla almond milk
ice
1 cup baby spinach
1 pear
1 ripe banana
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
honey


I promise if you make it once you will make one every day!
