Green Goodness

Evening everyone and Happy Canada Day! This evening my boyfriend (Luke) and I went down to parliament hill, watched the bands play and ended the evening with fireworks and a 10km bike home.What a great day.

This morning for energy we made TROPICAL GREEN MONSTERS! YUMM. One thing I have noticed is the more green smoothies one consumes the more they want (and the more attractive the green color becomes). The first time I had a green smoothie I was really hesitant to dive into the green goo. But once I opened my mind and mouth I was presently surprised by the refreshing taste.

Another amazing drink that is green is wheat grass juice! Probably the healthiest thing known to man this potant juice will knock you off your feet and have you dancing with energy for hours. CAUTION: take only 1 once and chase your wheat grass shot with a slice of orange.
