He’s Got Smoothie Written All Over Him…A Healthy Lifestyle

IMG_1369.JPG

He looks the part alright…healthy, lean and chiseled – that would be my darling husband. One of his health rituals (more on those another time), is making killer smoothies every morning. He’s been making them for years! Going from runny to lumpy, you could say he’s finally mastered the art. And…has finally gotten rebel-girl-me on board.

It took awhile- but I’m now hooked! For those who don’t know me so well, let me tell you a little about my taste buds…how’s about this; I dream of lazy mornings sipping French Vanilla coffee topped with frothy whipped cream and a dash of Bailey’s; while you’re at it, pass me a cigarette. I know, I know, I don’t look the part. Nevertheless, since I wanna stay strong, healthy and beautiful, that whole French Vanilla-puff-puff fantasy is majorly off-limits and the hugest of no-no’s for me- so…delete!

I have to say, it took me awhile to get on the smoothie ride- as I always found reason to resist (not sweet enough, not cold enough, too early, too late, yada yada). Well, after years of resistance, it turns out I now love DH’s smoothies ( even at room temperature – if you can imagine! Apparently it does wonders for the digestive system- rather than shock it). Well what do you know, he’s converted me!

What’s he put in this stuff anyway?
Not all of his secrets are divulged- but here goes his basics:
