Green Smoothie Day

by HEAB on February 22, 2010

I ate out a lot this past weekend, Thai and Italian food on Friday and a fun brunch with Jessica at Fido’s yesterday. While at Fido’s, I ran into 2 friends I hadn’t seen in a while (Hey David and Jerry!). They told me they read HEAB, and Jerry was even inspired to try yoga. Jerry, hearing that totally made my morning. Good to see you guys, and Jessica, we need to hang out more often, seriously.

Anyway, I wanted to keep this morning’s breakfast simple…and green. I’m feeling bloated, maybe from all the sodium consumed? Do you ever have those days when you just want to clean out your system and fill it with lots of veggies? I do, and so this morning I made a big smoothie.

Into the Vita-Mix went 1 serving of coconut water, 2 baby cucumbers, 1 whole avocado, 2 handfuls of spinach, and 5-6 ice cubes.


A few seconds later, I had this…x 2. :) I topped both glasses with unsweetened shredded coconut.


The coconut water is naturally sweet, and help balanced out the green taste. I thought this was delicious, but the majority of people out there (read non Green Monster drinking bloggers/food blog readers) might find my smoothie quite disgusting. Well, they’re missing out for sure! The cucumbers tasted so refreshing, and I LOVE avocados so very much. Plus, this was super filling. I feel better already.

Back is still jacked. CD worked on it yesterday, and I felt much better…until I woke up this morning. It stinks because when my body hurts, that means I can’t work. So, I cancelled my afternoon clients and made an appointment for a massage of my own with my go-to therapist, Juliana. It’s going to be painful, but I guarantee Juliana will fix me. She’s a miracle worker.

Hope you all have a wonderful veggie-filled day!
