I haven't had any energy lately. When I saw an TV ad for the Nutrient Bullet it got me thinking about starting my day with a nutritional smoothy. But when I looked into buying one it was over $150. So I'm making due with my blender. I've tried drinking fruit smoothies and they give me acid reflux. So we'll see if I can handle part fruit and part veggies.
I got up this morning and put together a concoction that is as follows:
Purple Monster Smoothy
Half of a peeled cucumber
1 ripe banana
5 pitted fresh cherries
handful of cilantro
handful of red cabbage
tsp. of sesame seeds
1/2 cup of spring water
I call this one a win, because it didn't taste horrid. Mostly I tasted banana. I was able to drink the glass without gagging. And it's colorful.
