Green Monster - take 2!

Have you seen this:

This is the new diet guideline replacing the food pyramid. What do you think? 
I think this is much better - more simple and east to understand (especially since the target audience is children). But speaking of that - shouldn't the target audience be ALL people - not just children. 2/3 of all American Adults are obese. That is a SHOCKING statistic. I'm doing my part to bring that number down - one person at a time (ME!). 

This morning I had tried again for my green Green Monster: 

My recipe:
 - one banana
 - two tablespoons of peanut butter
- two tablespoons of honey
-1/2 cup greek yogurt
- 2 cups of spinach

I gathered my goods and blended...


Did it taste good?


The peanut butter made it extra creamy. While I liked it, it wasn't as good as my berry smoothie - so I will probably stick to that (until I think of another AWESOME combo). 

Something else I've made lately:

Crystal Light pop-cycles!
Do you know a healthy pop-cycle recipe? Share it! :)


  1. The green monster looks good! where did you get the recipe?! xoxox-Jodie

  2. I just made it up - but I'm sure if you google it you could find some. :) I got the idea from Brittany at

    I've tried a lot of variations with different fruits. My favorite so far is Pineapple and Peach! :)
