About Me

Growing up my initials were OP, which was pretty cool in the 80's, right? Then I got married and my initials got updated to match our very texting obsessed era that we now live in (and shake our heads at)...OMG. For those who are texting illiterate, I'll spell it out..."Oh, My God!". I pity the girl whose initials are W.T.F. (I won't spell that one out. You can Google it or email me for an explaination on that one!)


The making of a Pretty Green (Pink) Smoothie

First I started off with a couple leaves of romaine lettuce, a leaf of some left over bach choy that I had in the freezer, and a cup of spinach that was frozen then crushed down...I'm not sure how much that equals in fresh spinach. I stuff freezer ziplock bags with lettuce, kale, spinach and then once it freezes, I crush it in the bag and it really packs down. It's a space saving way I've discovered and now I never waste any greens! That is a 4 up container holding my greens right here. For fruit I just grab a misc mix of stuff that sounds good. A cup of frozen mixed raspberries, blueberries, marionberries (from Costco). Cup of frozen grapes. Cup of frozen peaches. Half a frozen apple. Banana. Few pieces of pineapple left in the fridge. 2 frozen wedges of a lime (I love lime). I'm sure it would taste just fine without so many different items but I LOVE variety! It's like my own fruit and greens salad bar.

Don't forget the good fats. 1 Tablespoon.

Here's the sweetness in my awesome 1horsepower blender! There's a cup of cold water in there too.

4 cups of Pretty Green (pink) Smoothie! In just 30 seconds!

Here's the kicker...I was curious so I weighed it. My jar.

WOW! No wonder it takes me 4-6 hrs to finish this thing off! 2 pounds of fruits & veggies! There is 8 oz of water in there so it's really about 1.5 pounds. And soooooo yummy and soooooo healthy.

I hope you will make your own. It doesn't have to be this big (but I promise, you will want more!)
Now, back to studying!
