Rants, Rules & Recipes

An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Strawberry Smoothie

So you’ve heard “juicing” is all the rage and wanna check out a nutritious smoothie option, but don’t have pomagranite seeds or kumquats? Or maybe you’re just looking for something a little less noxious than a pop-tart or egg McMuffin to start your day, but don’t wanna get too crazy health-nutty….This is the ‘starter’ smoothie for you.  I always have these ingredients in my freezer, so that if the veggie drawer and fruit bowl are empty, I can still whip up a deliciously healthy smoothie!  It’s my “go to”.  My “safety smoothie”.  My back up plan. My —I think you get the idea.

I recommend freezing any produce that’s about to go bad, so you can throw it in your own version of a “go to smoothie”—or you can let it rot in the fruit bowl and start a fruit fly farm! Your call.
