My new Craving

Can you guess what that green stuff is????........yup....it's spinach!
I'm trying to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my diet....and trying coax the family along with me.....and this is my new breakfast beverage of choice......I got the recipe from a new book I read called "Original Fast Foods." They advocate a plant-based diet (not vegetarian) with lots of recipes using fruits and veggies. I was a little skeptical but it actually tastes very good to me....(maybe I have weird tastebuds) It contains about 1 1/4 cup of apple juice (unsweetened) a handful of fresh pineapple (on sale) 1/2 banana, a palm full of raspberries-I've also used strawberries and a handful of SPINACH. Then you have to blend the beejeebies out of it-I HATE chunks-they make me gag (I leave the chunks in the bottom of the glass-ha ha) This is supposed to be a mineral rich drink and it is actually really energizing.
Now don't yell at me and tell me I'm not taking in enough calories for breakfast because this is just a beverage-I also eat some whole grain cereal or toast-eggs & toast, etc. along with it.
I DARE YOU TO TRY IT! (insert evil laugh)

oops, I cut off my post by accident. Ok, I tried this yummy drink and it is yumm-O like Rachael Ray would say.

I tried mine with unsweetened tea as I was out of apple juice.
it tasted good but, i also added ice. I am the ice queen as everything I drink must have ICE!

I could not come today for eggs as I attended this grewling meeting to transfer my son out of the yucky group home to the new one, different agency etc.
I don't do meetings!

So, I can come by tomorrow as I am up like you very early like 6ish each day. I am in 6 swaps for CE and I am in one 50 sheets of 12x12 paper for another group.

So, what time tomorrow Tueday, June 24th if this works good for you?

Don't worry about checks now unless you want to do a talley with me and I will keep track. I always jot down the eggs per day verses the sales. Then as you purchase more, you can just pay me when the total gets bigger. Ok?

You are such a neat women and as I was driving home I asked my husband if we could move your house on our property. LOL

I need your contractors name as he did a remarkable job. I just love your house. so open and airy. Ours is closed up and darkish. i love bright and open.

oh and if can add something about your famous drink at the ranch market now veggies and stuff are on sale.

I got spinach 2@1.00, pineapple 99 cents and raspberries 99 cents, bananas are still high like 69 cents per pound. But, since i eat two per day, I always keep them in stock.

you take care
