i finally tried the green monster last night and it was SO good and refreshing. i couldn't stop drinking it!
it's super easy and does not taste like you are eating a bunch of green chopped up bits of vegetables. it tastes sweet and cold and yum.
in a blender, put: 1 TB flax, 2 cups of washed spinach, 1 banana, some blueberries and other berries if you have them, and about a cup of milk (I used soy. you can also use almond, rice, etc.). Blend, add some ice if you like it extra cold, and serve in a glass!
it made enough for 2 smoothies, so i shared with TH. and can you believe that was all i had for dinner? it was so filling and satisfying.
but here's my question: i've been reading lately that spinach has oxalic acid, which actually absorbs iron from your body, inhibiting your body's ability to take in the iron. for us ladies that need all the iron we can get, how do you get your sources of iron? i'm truly concerned about this. sometimes i just feel like you cannot win in the health world. haha.
