If I lived alone and only cooked for myself I'd probably eat less meat. J is a real lover of meat and so am I. So, while he is away I decided that while indulging in my secret single behaviors (SSBs,) I would be vegan, give up caffeine and alcohol the entire time! Yes, all at once. It is a bit Crazy but "Who 'gon stop me?" Since I'm flying solo this recipe is for one serving (if you are on the verge of collapse like I was when I made it) or one and a half for regular hunger. If you're so inclined to make it for two or more then it's easy math to increase the measurement of each ingredient. Well, I'm hoping it's easy math for you but if it's not, no judgment. I'm just here about the food...
I am happy to report that I have been on my morning smoothie routine for well over two months. I have cycled through several combinations of fruits and veggies and ninety-eight percent of my concoctions were yummy. My biggest failure was with a green smoothie where I was a little heavy handed with the kale. I haven't gone back to the green smoothie until now because I did not like chugging my first green smoothie, (it tasted like grass with blended anchovies.) I decided to go lighter and gradually up the "greeness" once my palate adjusts to the taste.
