I know that sounds pretty gross I’m sure. It actually isn’t half bad!
Here is is:
1 1/2 (ish) cups of Silk Soy milk
1 cup Costco Triple Berry Blend
1 handful of spinach
1 scoop of whey protein powder
1 tsp chia seeds (supposed to be good for you? I’m trusting the internet on this one)
Directions: Put into blender. Blend. I also occasionally stirred things around in there with a knife because I’m
ghetto cool like that. Ain’t nobody got time for accidental full leaves of spinach.
Rating: 3.5/5- as in it’s pretty good, I’m enjoying this breakfast beverage as I type, I feel healthy drinking it but I don’t taste spinach like I thought, but I’m not chugging this like apple juice. But it’s good. Also, I feel myself getting full already and I’m barely half way in.
I’m trying to eat healthier so that my History and Physical doesn’t look like a medical-surgical textbook one day like so many of my patients.
IE: cancer, HTN, diabetes type II, hyperlipidemia, sleep apnea, obesity.
Those are the things I would like to avoid. Cancer is hit or miss, but the rest of those are totally preventable.
SO. Expect some food related posts. It’ll help me keep track of recipes I like. I’ve been looking up stuff about clean eating, which sounds appealing. I like the idea of limiting processed foods and flours that are so not good for you. But, it’ll be a slow process. And I’m not gonna dive in 100% right away because, well, let’s be reasonable about this.
On a positive note, I have cut back on soda A LOT. As in, if I have one in a week that is a splurge. Baby steps.
