I wanted to try something new and yummy for breakfast instead of my usual oatmeal. I have been wanting to try the Green Monster. I've read a lot about it and it sounded like a wonderful way to sneak some additional nutrients into your day. Verdict? FABOOSH. I will be drinking this more often!
Isn't it pretty? To make the Green Monster, I followed Angela's basic recipe:
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 banana
- 1.25 cup milk (cow, almond, rice, etc)
Somehow I skipped one week ahead on my training plan. This is a taper week for me. So yesterday, instead of 4 miles, I should have ran 5. I'll be running 2.25 miles today since I only ran 2.75 yesterday. Tomorrow will be another 5. The meterologists are prediciting this huge winter storm (ice, snow, sleet) for us Okies tomorrow so we will see how this plays out. The last storm was terrible. They keep saying it will be another bad one. Boo!
