Busiest days = really horrible eating for me. My meals today consisted of the following: two (TWO!) donuts, a sandwich on white bread, a couple handfulls of chips, 3 clementines, a sample size caramel latte at Starbucks, and a small slice of pizza. <– WOW! Sooo unlike me! I like eating tasty food, but my idea of “tasty” is not Dunkin or Dominos!
I feel like I need to detox this weekend so I can move into next week feeling refreshed. Join me in my mini-quest! It begins this evening with a Burgundy Bombshell Smoothie:
Serves two very nutrient-deprived adults (or a hoard of children!):
2 cups frozen mixed berries
1 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 medium banana
one large bunch of spinach, stems removed (“large” being about 2-3 cups)
2 scoops of your fave protein powder (I used vanilla Sun Warrior)
1 hefty scoop of spirulina powder (I like this one by Frontier)
probiotics of choice
Sprinkle with raw cacao nibs and…
Served with a side of Kale Krisps hot out of the oven…
What other mix-ins do I add to the Bombshell?
Discuss! Random question, but I have to know for publishing purposes ;-] How do you feel about kids and iPads? I mean VERY young kids, like ages 3-7. Not as a “babysitter,” but simply as an interactive toy that they can do what kids used to do on a game board, with a book, an educational toy, etc. Is it too pricey? Does it corrupt their “untouched” environment? Are electronics bad for kids?
