Marine Smoothie Explosion!!

image

My boyfriend Bryan is in the Marines- and even with his busy schedule,  he still finds time to make smoothies! He texted me this picture of his all natural green smoothie that exploded all over everything, and I couldn’t help but laugh and put it on my health blog.

Don’t forget to close the lids on your blenders everyone!

Be inspired by Bryan’s incredible ability to find time for smoothie making throughout his 11 hour work days in the Marines.

If he can wake up at 5am everyday, and still have time to eat healthy, you can eat healthy too!

I’m still really excited about adding vegetables to my smoothies, and the cucumber this morning was a great addition!

I could barely taste the light and crisp flavors of the 1/2 cucumber I put in.

Adding a vegetable to every smoothie this week has made them so much more gratifying to drink!

Today’s morning smoothie ingredients:
Strawberries
Cucumber
Peaches
Banana
Peach nectar juice
Ice

Delicous and refreshing on this hot San Diego day!

Marine Smoothies

Just made this beauty in the bathroom of Bryan’s barrack! It’s the only place in his whole marine room with a plug where I don’t have to worry about a huge mess getting everywhere.

Smoothies are great:

  • They’re quick (this took 2 mins to put together)
  • They’re healthy (100% fruit, no additives, no preservatives)
  • They’re DELICIOUS (It tastes like I’m drinking Hawaii)
  • They’re cheap! (buying fruit in bulk is WAY cheaper then purchasing a happy meal from McDonalds 3 times a day.)

Processed foods do not have nearly ONE TENTH of the nutrients of the non-processed foods they came from.

Don’t make excuses, make smoothies 🙂
