pistchios and avocados arent evil, they just need healthy friends...

Thursday, May 16, 2013

It was so nasty trying to breathe on the bike ride today, the air was so full of cotton and pollen. It was raining and blowing pollen! I just came home and struggled with both breathing and the recipe calculator; I kept forgetting that the recipe doesnt show the ingredient list.

Finally finished adding a new smoothie:

Fennel, Ginger, Apricot, Kale Apple and Pistachio soup. I think gazpacho when its green, not smoothie, but since I am drinking it cold, it really is more of a smoothie. The big nutribullet cup is not really big enough, so I will probably start to make smaller portions, but I like having the leftovers as a mid meal boost. This recipe is a sleeper. It has a lovely last note between sips. Fennel is my new chocolate!

I think spark has trained me to be leary of fats, but pistachios and avocados arent evil. They just need healthy friends.

    Those pictures are SO CUTE!

    Avocados and pistachios a key foods in this house. Their nutritional values are the best. All things in moderation... even gazpacho emoticon
