Hey – It’s me, Patty, one of Dustin’s FMFL bloggers.  Just a quick blog on a recipe that you need to try! 

Memorial day is not a good one.  It’s cold, it’s wet, and there are severe storms headed our way later this afternoon/evening.  So – I’m inside, catching up on some bookwork, housework, recipes, planning, batch cooking, blogging, etc. 

A friend of mine from Spark People challenged me to try to put spinach in my smoothie.  I’ve thought about doing it for some time, but eesh!  Well – LOVE IT!  I think I’ve had a green smoothie almost every day, if not every other day since!  Even my 7-year-old tried it and liked it.  Maybe not enough to ask me to make one individually for him out of the blue, but he has taken a drink each time I’ve made one so that’s a start! 

Here’s my favorite mix:


Frozen banana

Prograde vanilla protein powder

Ice, water

Chia seeds



Today I added strawberry to it, it’s just as good, but it changed the color a little; I prefer the bright green color!  🙂 

Doesn’t that layer of healthy ingredients look delish!?  It is!

Try something new!  Try a new exercise routine.  Try a new recipe. 

And thank a veteran this Memorial’s day!
