happy birthday and a green smoothie for you

In honor of my dad-in-law's birthday today, and the fact that he has started making his own green smoothies every day, here's my latest green smoothie concoction:
  • purple cabbage
  • radicchio
  • leafy green lettuce
  • spinach
  • carrots
  • wheat germ
  • flaxseed meal
  • pears
  • clementines
  • apple juice
  • honey
  • plain yogurt
  • bananas
  • mangoes
  • pineapple
  • frozen mixed berries
  • grapefruit juice
  • strawberry and banana V-Fusion veggie/fruit juice
Happy birthday, Dad, and a happy, healthy new green year for you!

To everyone else, yes, I'm still cooking, just gearing up for yet another move (this time across the country instead of an international one), so not posting much. More to come soon...from Seattle!

the latest greenage

Green smoothie I made this morning: a bunch of fresh cilantro, frozen peaches, two bananas, sprinkling of cinnamon, one-quarter fresh pineapple, about a cup of apple juice, a bit of toasted wheat germ, flaxseed meal, one plum, one carrot, and plenty of fresh organic baby spinach. YUM.

What a fresh-tasting, zingy concoction, and I loved the outdoorsy, springy flavor of the cilantro. Try it, Mikey, you'll like it!
