Hey guys!!! Okay, so I absolutely hate vegetables. I mean to the point where even salads with bacon and dressing don't cut it for me.
Unfortunately, I know how important they are and how good they are for us. Well, I wanted to share with you all this smoothie that I make for breakfast every Monday-Saturday morning. It sounds absolutely gross and does not LOOK like the most pleasant thing either, but it is a way to get your servings of veggies in for the day without tasting them! This smoothie consists of:
1 banana 120 cals
1 apple 100 cals
1 cup of ocean sprey Ruby Red grapefruit juice (NOT the cocktail, it's the100% juice) 110 cals
1-2 large handfuls of spinach
1-2 large handfuls of broccoli (usually I fill up an entire cereal bowl of just broccoli and spinach)
^^^Throw it all in a blender and BAM!
It's about a total of 350 calories. It sounds gross, but the only thing the vegetables do is turn the smoothie green. The grapefruit juice is the most essential seeing as it is the ingredient that drowns out the veggie taste. In my opinion this smoothie is way more manageable than salads and especially steamed veggies (which make me gag anyway).
I seriously hate vegetables with a passion, and this smoothie that I make literally drowns the taste out (for me anyway!). It is also SOOOO filling because it is so nutrient dense. It holds me for a good 2.5-3 hours.
When my friend first told me about this smoothie I almost threw up. Then I made one myself and I was like "k i can do this!"
Just an idea to make veggie eating more bearable for those who hate veggies. If anyone else has any ideas, or has tried the smoothie themselves, please share!
