morning three

ive been scurrred to try this mixture. the romaine lettuce seemed strange to mix in but maybe thats coz i got all tight with spinach lately. the green apple i knew would be tart. this drink was 75% veggie and 25% fruit so that ratio isn't in my favor. i think that will take time for me-i need to stay on the sweet side.

if you ever listen to me now is the time to truly listen. this isn't good. i had to keep doing things to it to just get it drinkable and it was too thick but im sure it was the romaine and the grit from the pear. adding more water or liquid didnt do much. oh, and i kept tasting tomato which wasn't even in there sooo yep, that was a mystery.

2 stalks celery
3/4 head of romaine lettuce
1 large handful of spinach
1/2 persian cucumber
1/2 lemon (squeeze the juice)
1 pear (cored)
1 green apple (cored)
1 banana
1 1/2 to 2 cups water
1 tbsp chia seed

tomorrow i think i will try something with blueberries or carrots just so i can make a different color. all these shades of green are killing my right brain ova' here...

although todays greenie tanked for me i will absolutely say that i will continue to do these greens. it really is much easier than anything else i could make myself for breakfast. also there are a zillion recipes and i really do like them (most of them). coming from a girl that is perfectly happy with doritos and red vines with a side of diet coke for lunch (way too often) that is huge!
