Greens & Reds
I had a really busy day yesterday! It was non-stop from the time I woke up with emails, phone calls, and handling blog-related details.
I updated my About page. I am always changing, we all are, and periodically I update that page to reflect who I am, today.
And my Themed Recipes are now alphabetized. So now if you need anything from 4th of July recipes, Stevia Recipes, Mango Recipes, to Potato recipes, they’re alphabetized. You’re thrilled, right?
But, those are the types of little details that I like to keep updated, maintained, and handled or they snowball into a huge mess faster than dirty baking dishes can multiply and take over the countertop.
On my run yesterday I spotted a lemon tree.
Juicy perfection just basking in the sunlight.
However, the sunlight didn’t last long. The day turned overcast, dark, windy, and cool. Not a fan of weather like that.
I also went to the grocery store for a few green items.
I definitely eat my share of green food.
Recently I received these products from Greens 8000
The chocolate flavor is my favorite. Surprise, surprise.
They have a FAQ page about their products
In general, I prefer a food over pills or supplements approach as I’ve discussed.
But sometimes if I’m falling a little short on Eating the Rainbow or I haven’t been going gangbusters on Blue Food or want some extra “insurance” or want to get a little extra oomph into Skylar, Greens 8000 products come in handy.
The taste is not bitter, earthy, or even “dirty” the way that some natural supplements or smoothie enhancers or powders can sometimes be. Cough, cough hemp powder for me is just too dirty tasting and many natural smoothie enhancers I’ve tried are bitter.
I’ve mixed the Chocolate into Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oats
And I’ve mixed the Red into a Taste of the Tropics Smoothie
Now that summer is officially here, break out the smoothies!
And it’s always a good time to break out some dessert.
Have you tried a Magic Eight Bar yet?
I have a few Nutella & Peanut Butter Graham Bars with Chocolate Frosting (No Bake) in the freezer on standby, though.
From my last post about Packing Lunches, I loved hearing if you pack your lunch and what you like to bring. I wanted to raid your lunch bags!
1. What was the last green food you ate? Or red food?
Mine was an tomato, edamame, and cucumber salad with vegan slaw dressing.
I covered both my red and green bases in one bowl.
I love edamame!
I’ve also been going to town on sugar snap peas (love the TJ’s sugar snap peas!) dipped in Spicy Doritos Cheezy Dip
2. Do you use any supplements, vitamins protein powders, smoothie enhancers or vitamin-ish powders that you really like?
I’ve posted before about my thoughts. In general, I prefer a food over pills approach. However, there are exceptions.
I also recently reviewed some Amazing Grass here
For the supplements I do take, check out this post.
For instance, I always take probiotics, and I order them from iHerb.com To save $5 off your iHerb.com order use code: AVE630 (Stock up on your stevia, protein powder, nutritional yeast, supplements, agave, bulk spices, and more. Never pay retail again!)
