Yesterday was another “I am not so hungry” day. I finished the smoothie I made, and about a head of cauliflower (made Cauli Poppers), the rest was little munchies of small things here and there.
Today is a whole new day and it is time to experiment! For a while now I have known that the avocado pit (seed) is edible. I have been planning to give it a try, but always ended up being too lazy to do it. I was also concerned about damaging my blender’s blade. I don’t know why, since I have the king of all blenders–Vitamix 5200. So silly! Anyhow… I finally did it, and it was great. From my reading I found that the pit is a bit bitter, so I used 1/2 of it in a green smoothie. I could not taste it at all! Simply a normal delicious green smoothie it was .

I am not going to try to recreate the wheel here and tell you about seed’s benefits on my own, so I will quote Victoria Boutenko word for word, since she knows what she is talking about .

How is your green smoothieing going? Yesterday was a good day, but I was busy and not as hungry. I finished off my green smoothies made the day before, and had little munchies throughout the day (a cucumber, a bagel sandwich with a ton of veggies, and herbal teas).
Today, before making my smoothies, I got inspired by Facebook readers–you all rocked it. Jessica H. shared her green smoothie recipe, which inspired me to make something different than I originally planned–it turned out SOOOO good! I even tried taking a picture of it, but Sprout wanted the smoothie, so her little hand got in the way. (What can you do with a green loving kid like that? ). The picture is not the best–taken with my phone, but the taste is out of this world!

A green smoothie that is!
While many have their supersticious beliefs about Friday the 13th, I think that it is as good of a day as any–made by God to enjoy and be healthy.
Hubby happened to have a couple of days off, so, having awakened Sprout this morning, for her morning meal, we went for a walk, then, once we got home, I whipped up a delicious Green Smoothie, to get the day going and to get him ready for a bike ride (his favorite sport!).
