I love fresh and organic food. I love saving money by buying in bulk. I love the co-op I belong to who always delivers a crud ton of greens. I get really annoyed when I don’t eat my food fast enough and it goes bad. (Insert moment of guilt for my first world gripe)
I only make one or two smoothies a day, I travel a lot, food tends to go bad quickly for me, but I love to save money buying large amounts from local sources. This really applies to greens. They are great in smoothies but I hate when they get all slimy. I had a huge tub of mixed greens that I didn’t want to waste, so after a quick google search I blended them up and froze them. Success! I highly recommend it to save time and money!
Thank you to Green Thickies for pointing me in the right direction. I did not follow their directions to the letter….I just kept stuffing greens in the blender, adding a cup of water, blending, and then repeating until I had no more greens. Poured in a muffin tin, froze for two days (I totally forgot about them prior to a short trip) and then popped them out and put them in freezer bags. EASY PEASY! I tried one this morning with my strawberry banana concoction (I am so bad at following actual recipes) and it worked like a dream and even helped thicken up the mix a bit.
VISUAL PROOF OF SUCCESS
On a separate note, this week’s yoga pose takes us back to the basics – Downward Facing Dog. Here is what I look like one day one. I’ve already done some reading on how to correct my form and I look forward to developing this week. My personal goal is to get my heels down without losing form. Check back in a week for my Yoga Pose of the Week summary!
