Here lately, my immune system has taken a HUGE kick in the pants. Its like every other week I’m coming down with something.
So I decided two things were to blame: marathon training (training really lowers your body’s ability to fight infection) and the fact that I’ve been eating like a 13-year-old boy (i.e., lots of junk and lots of soda). I want to not only feel healthy, I also want to finally ditch these last 10lbs of baby weight that are so desperately clinging to me.
I used to drink a spinach smoothie about every day. All it was was some almond milk, spinach, a tablespoon of peanut butter, and a packet of Splenda. It was yummy, low calorie, and helped me get in a serving of green veggies easily. When i got pregnant, I heard that kale was the way to go because of all the folic acid. Have you ever tried to blend kale? Yeah. Its disgusting. But I knew it was a super food and I wanted to give it another go.
Whilst shopping, I saw this and thought, “I can put THIS in a smoothie!”
The ingredients were simple: kale puree, spinach puree, cucumber puree, and pure apple juice. That’s it! I wanted to try it by itself first to see if I liked it before making a smoothie with it.
This was a bad idea.
First, it smelled like butt. Seriously. But I took a sip anyway.
Second bad idea.
I could barely choke it down without spitting it back out.
And now the taste is forever burned into my taste buds.
Has anyone ever tried this? Any way to make it more palatable? I don’t want to waste the bottle, but I am SO not drinking that by itself again!
