I woke up this morning needing something good for my body. I haven’t eaten horrible this weekend but I could certainly tell my body need vitamins, and super fast. I don’t have an actual food journal as of yet, hopefully I will be heading to Chapters to buy a pretty one soon, so for now I will post some of my meals online.
This smoothie was delicious. Packed full of vitamins, sneaky vegetables and some fresh fruit to round everything out.
- 1/2 cup wild blueberris
- 1/4 cup cranberries
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- 1/3 cup greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1tbsp chia seeds
- 2 cups spinach ( one giant handful)
I just threw everything into my ninja and blended away. I love the ninja because its smaller and more convenient than a blender but it packs the same powerful punch. I honestly think it would blend anything, and hasn’t let me down yet.
While reaching into my spinach bag I noticed that it was almost time to throw it away even though I still had a little over half of it to go. I am making turkey soup for dinner tonight and planned to incorporate some spinach into my bowl, but other than that I really had no immediate use for the rest of it. Enter Google.
I saw images of frozen spinach “cubes”. I wilted my spinach down in my pan, it honestly took like 3 minutes, blended it up and had it in ice cube trays. Now to wait for it to fully freeze, put it in a container and just pop the cubes into my smoothies or pasta sauces whenever needed. Ingenious.
Now to run off to the grocery store, head out for a walk, and get some studying done. Hope everyone has a Happy Sunday!
