I've decided to go green. No, not green as in recycling... green as in my breakfast!
I have read on a few blogs about the Green Monster, but being the queen of doubt, I had little faith that these were GOOD and you couldn't taste the spinach. However, after many a midday headache from not eating breakfast I figured what have I got to lose, and ventured out to Wally World to pick up a blender.

And now, I've made one every morning since!
Curious to see just HOW healthy it really is, I plugged all the ingredients in to an app on my phone and came up with this:
Not too shabby for a breakfast smoothie, huh?! I'm a believer now. I went green.
