5/12/12 -- 1) breakfast: spinach / banana / orange / frozen blueberries 2) lunch -- zucchini, garlic, miso, lime juice, avocado, Thai basil, umeboshi vinegar This was inspired by Yvonne's raw zucchini's soup (May 9) and is destined to be a favourite of mine, even though I don't usually like the taste of raw garlic

As I am updating this on June 14, I have given up on my commitment to have a green smoothie every day. My blender broke on June 7 while I was preparing a spinach smoothie, I made a delicious spinach casserole with the greens and somehow my craving for green smoothies did not come back when I got a new blender. In fact I can see on this post that my commitment started to wane on May 18, which also happens to be the day that I had gone on a 10-day computer-fast.
Thanks for this challenge; because of it, I was able to learn new things about green smoothies and about myself.
