Monday means time for a green smoothie

Mmmm so green and fresh.

and creamy.

Am I making you want a green smoothie?

Ok, HAPPY MONDAY everyone! The sun is shining here and I’m feeling an awesome week. And there’s no better way to start your week off than in a healthy and fun way. Yep, I’m talking about you Mr. Green Smoothie. Ryan had been complaining about how sweet the green smoothies have been so I decided to change things up which resulted in a very creamy almost ice cream like drink this morning.

Into the blender went:

1 frozen banana

2 handfuls fresh spinach

1 scoop Juice Plus Complete (plant based protein)

1 cup(ish) almond/coconut milk mix

I love starting my day off with 2 servings of vegetables. You just set yourself up for a healthy day. Just a fair warning: this smoothie is still extremely sweet.

Speaking of vegetables, last night I had a fun time photographing these gorgeous sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts.

Please excuse the dusty table…I just love that spot because of the pretty lighting. Last night for dinner I roasted up the brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes and grilled some turkey burgers stuffed with diced onion and garlic.

And as far as this weekend, there was far too much eating involved. I’ll give you a sneak peek to the next post:

What are you guys starting your week of with? I want to know! Let me know in the comments!

Bon App├ętit,

That Foodie Girl

  1. There is an organic market in Tulum now! They came to Akumal on Saturday and I bought some delicious fresh sprouts! I made a sprout, tomato, avocado salad with olive oil and lime. It was SO good! I had it with a chicken milanese and one toasted corn tortilla. I also bought a root vegetable that looks like it could be kohlrabi. I am going to cook that up this week!

    • That all sounds so good! That’s awesome that there’s an organic market there now! I want to go when I’m down there next! Maybe I need to do some research for some social media…:)
