For the most part, I’m an equal opportunity vegetable lover. Eating all my vegetables is never an issue for me unless it’s Asparagus..then I want to gag. As you know, in the summer I like to drink my breakfast in the form of smoothies especially after a run. The milk and protein powder really help with my muscle recovery and the sugar in the fruit helps restore my energy. I also add yogurt for a good dose of probiotics to keep the plumbing working. So after reading an article about adding vegetables to your smoothie, I decided to give spinach a whirl.
To my surprise, you can’t taste the spinach, at all. The only evidence there was of spinach was a piece of green stuck in my teeth. After drinking, I felt like I was ready to tackle my day like Popeye taking on Brutus.
