::green goodness::

it seems as if once the temperature hits 70 degrees, i am much more interested in eating healthily and making sure my family is getting all of the fruits and veggies we need. and seeing as it has been in the 80's and 90's over the last week or so, our hibernation has ended!

today, lily and i made our first green smoothies of the season and we were excited to make one for finn, too. both of my kids gobbled them up and i am hoping to start the habit back up as we head into the warmer months. it was such an easy way to get a handful of spinach into both of them. (and i am also hoping it will help to curb my supposed "need" for so many sweet treats... we will see!) yum!

Mmmm, what do you put in the green smoothie besides spinach?

spinach, 1/2 a banana, and frozen peaches, mango and pineapple. and then water to make it the desired consistency. blend away! delicious!
