1. Starting the day with green juice
I’ve seen photos of green juice all over the internet for years. I’ve heard people rave about it.
And I thought it looked and sounded nasty!
Then I tried it.
And I found out that it’s really good, Sam, I am. You can’t taste the spinach at all. I’ve been making ours with 2 oranges, 1 banana, a little orange juice or water, several handfuls of spinach and a few ice cubes.
The Vitamix blends it smooth and frothy. It tastes like really good fruit juice.
2. Toasted Marshmallow Milkshakes
In my quest to find anything that will blend, (I love my new blender!) I found a recipe for Toasted Marshmallow Milkshakes.
I thought these were so good! And they’re really easy too. I made enough for us each to have a small glass.
3. How I’m attempting to cut back on sugar this year.
I know. I just shared a recipe for milkshakes. But I am determined to find some way to stop the chronic headaches and migraines I get.
One of the things I think contributes is eating a lot of sugary treats throughout the day. I was very bad about this over Christmas, and paid for it with a week long headache battle. I easily fall into eating too many sweets at other times of the year too.
So this year, instead of going cold turkey like I tried last year, I’m taking a “small is big” approach. I’m refusing to eat any sweet treats until after dinner. I don’t tend to graze on things after dinner like I do earlier in the day.
I’m hoping this little rule will make a difference. I may up my game and reduce sugar even further at some point. Or not. For now, I’m focusing on this small goal.
