The Smoothie is Always Greener on the Other Side

My green monsters never look green. Well at least not as green as others I’ve seen. I guess the smoothie IS always greener on the other side. πŸ˜‰

So my day started off with one of these babies. So refreshing!

Mid-morning I had a small container of that Greek Chickpea Salad from last night, with a few homemade pita chips.

No photo of lunch, because I am not too proud of it… it was a Butternut Squash Lean Cuisine. Hey I was in a hurry and it was better than fast food.

In the afternoon, I tried a new bar: Cascade Fresh Activ8 Blueberry Acai. I tried the Cherry Vanilla a few weeks back (yuck!), but this one was good. They are on sale at Jewel this week for 50Β’ and are in the yogurt section. They are on the small side, but very dense and full of nuts. Not super filling, but for a light snack it works. Check out the ingredient list… it is pretty decent. And at this sale price, you can’t beat it.

Went on a 30 minute run, and came home to more homemade pizza from the hubby. Cheese & basil this time. Now I’m sipping a refreshing Synergy! Strawberry & Grape are my favorite flavors. It is more fun to sip it from a wine glass. πŸ™‚

Pretty low-key evening. Oh, it was clean sheet night. I heart clean sheet night… bed time always feels so much better!

    My grandmother is from Oregon, and I have spent some time there in the summer. I LOVE the Hood River Valley Berries!!!!!!! Fruit stands are everywhere, and we would just stop and load up on all the good strawberries, blueberries, and boysenberries–my favorite!
