One day this week I was hungry ALL DAY LONG. I was actually getting sick of eating so I told my husband that I wish I could just drink food. I was literally sick of finding snacks to consume and just wanted a magic pill to fill me up.
Well, I didn’t drink my food that day. I ate regular meals and snacks, even if sick of them. And I think I was still hungry when I went to bed that night, but had given up so fell asleep to tummy growls.
What was the deal? Well, I have a current condition that I am not ready to share on the blog yet that keeps me hungry A LOT. So, it is time to mix things up and find fill-me-up drinks too.
Heyyyyyy smoothie! You’re looking pretty fine right now.
Yes, bring on the smoothie recipes. I have been going Pinterest crazy a bit lately to find some good ones. In fact, I think I shared a few faves on a guest post for Nature’s Bakery that should be up on their site soon. I haven’t tried them all, but it is my goal to!
Today I experimented with a refreshing pineapple smoothie! I rarely measure things, but here is what I grabbed out of the pantry and fridge:
- Frozen pineapple
- Frozen spinach
- pHenOH 7.4
- Chia Seeds
- Shredded Coconut
- Pineapple Juice
- Mint Leaves
- Sprinkle of Ginger, Cinnamon, & Cardamom
It is SOOOOOOOO GOOD! Definitely up my alley, but I am in love with mint and it definitely has a hint of it. If you are up for a similar smoothie, keep in mind you can take some of the ingredients off and it’d still taste the same I bet (like the pHenOH 7.4 since I doubt many peeps have this just laying around). Also, I start with just a little of the liquids and add more in if it is needed after I blend. I also use just a tad of spinach, because I am not into the very green-tasting smoothies.
