Getting organized is huge, and sometimes we just don't have the energy to do it! We all have to face the raw facts that eating better actually makes us feel better and gives us more energy, too.
I've gone back and forth between getting really excited about healthy eating and facing the reality that it takes a lot more work to do it. This current health phase of mine does not require
1. buying any expensive equipment
2. buying strange foods that are hard to find
3. or taking hours and hours to prepare something that will be consumed immediately.
But, I am not saying that it's not weird!!
It is totally weird. That's why I love it.
For once, it's not my hair that's weird. It's just my.. food.
So, what is this weird food that I am eating??
It's probably not new to you if you read: the Lazy Organizer and Passionate Homemaking. It's called a green smoothie.
It's spinach that makes it green. Weird, I know. To make it worse, you combine several cups of leafy goodness with frozen fruit, yogurt, orange juice concentrate--to cover the taste.
There are several variations to this, but it is pretty good!
So, the next time you see me, and I have green things hanging from my teeth, you'll know it's part of the reason for my energy. Just call me pop-eye.. olive oil? Just don't call me late for my green smoothie!
