How I do love just staring at him. Tom Brady who?! I am pretty darn excited about staring at him on February 6th too! Yay Packers!!
But that’s not the “green” I am really in love with. It’s this one –
That would be my first ever Green Monster! Angela very recently celebrated her 2nd anniversary and I decided to celebrate right along side by “attempting” to make one. As a fan of spinach in both raw and cooked forms, and an expert on the taste of spinach, I was definitely not convinced that a shake containing so much spinach could mask that flavor.
I stand corrected.
Heidi’s Original Green Monster2 servings lite silken tofu (192 grams of Nasoya) 3 C fresh spinach 1 small carrot (about 35 g) 1 small Fuji apple (about 90 g) 1/2 C water 1 dropper of liquid stevia
Throw it all in a blender. Turn it on high and let ‘er rip. This part required patience as it took a few minutes to come together.
Holy greenness was this AMAZING?! I liked the little bit of richness and extra protein from the tofu. It stuck with me all afternoon too. Yes, it looks quite icky, but all I tasted was the sweet tart apple and carrot combo. The Green Monster is here to stay! In fact, I picked up half of Trader Joe’s spinach supply today. True story.
I had an awesome cardio, chest and back workout today so I do believe I need some recovery nutrition . Forgive me for being brief, but I crave some green. Since it likely won’t be in the form of Aaron Rodgers, a Monster will just have to do!
