Remember that post I did about what I was wearing for the holidays? Well, someone COULD NOT fit into that dress by the time it came to slip it on Christmas Eve. But being the mentally unstable fat-ass that I am, I convinced Mr. A that he could get it to zip… And being the competitor that he is, he got the zipper up, taking about a four-inch strip of flesh along with it. Fail.
So I ordered myself a cleanse to start after the New Year and am downing copious amounts of green smoothies in hopes of getting somewhat back to “normal”. For those who aren’t familiar with the green smoothie, you are missing out! Not only do they help in losing weight, they boost energy, build your immune system and allow you to get a healthy dose of greens (and their fiber!) without the need for teeth. (Which is also coincidentally helpful for me, as I chipped a tooth on a lollipop yesterday. Thankfully, I have one dentist and one to-be dentist in the family. Unthankfully, we were nowhere near an office and I got my tooth smoothed out by my brother with a Dremel tool from my dad’s tool shed while laying on the floor of my parent’s laundry room. True story.)
Here is a super easy green smoothie recipe that with get you back on track (before you get totally bombed on New Years Eve and end up eating an entire cheese loaf the next day in your hungover state):
Orange and White Peach Green Smoothie
2 oranges, peeled and chopped
1 white peach, pitted and chopped
4-6 large romaine leaves
1 cup ice
Throw oranges and peaches into a sturdy blender, mix well. Follow with romaine, then ice and blend on high until smooth and frothy.
