P52: Hunger

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com

I am participating in a project over at My 3 Boybarians called Project52 (P52) which stands for “1 photo each week for a year.” There is an assigned theme each week and I try to take the best photo I can related to that theme.  You can see all my other weekly photos here.   Here is my picture for this week’s theme…

Hunger… you know that time between 3-6pm when you don’t think you can wait another minute until dinner.  SOO easy to reach for chocolate or something not so good for you.

Well, I have been having one of these little hunger-quenching, pick-me-up Strawberry Spinach Smoothies.

Thanks to Christa from Brown Sugar Toast who posted her recipe (and her little one enjoying SPINACH smoothies), I had to try them!  Now I love fresh spinach and fruit, BUT mix them together to create a milkshake type drink that doesn’t stick the to the thighs like a milkshake – oh yeah, I really like that!

(By the way I fed these to my nieces last week too.  They did question the green floating pieces – I told them it was special stuff to make the smoothies taste good! 🙂 They gulped them down and asked for more.)

So head over and check out Christa’s recipe and don’t be afraid to customize your own.  Mine doesn’t have any peaches, but I do like to add orange juice.

  3. Very pretty picture. I’ve been too scared to try greens in a smoothie. Yes, I’m a big chicken, but I just have trouble getting past the mental block of drinking spinach.
