Being a food blogger involves a lot of cooking, eating and sitting working away in front of the computer. What it does not seem to involve for me is much heart rate increasing exercise.

I want to change this and make more effort with some good old fashion exercise. I am saying this publicly in the hope that this will help me combat those ‘feeling a little bit too lazy to workout’ moments that I sometimes have.

    I do more juicing than I do making smoothies but i do enjoy a smoothie now and then just to change things up. I am always looking for new recipes that can provide some of the same effects that drinking fresh juiced fruits and vegetables has and this recipe gets dang close. It sounds very delicious and healthy so I will definitely be giving this recipe a try.

    This reminds me of Helen’s post workout green smoothie. I don’t care if it’s for before or after a workout, I just love my green smoothies. Nice combo! Tweeted, stumbled and pinned!

  3. Just seeing the word workout, makes my body tremble with foreboding, but I’d very happily polish off your green smoothie. I’m sure it would set me up for the day, whether that was going for a long walk or sitting in front of the computer. That Froothie blender is one powerful beast.
