Shamrock Oatmeal

I have to admit, I had fun yesterday creating green meals.  One was WAY outside of my comfort zone, but turned out to be really good. For breakfast I made some green oatmeal. Yeah, I got a bit adventurous with my oatmeal and added some spinach. I know your thinking, she’s nuts. There is NO […]

Whenever I make smoothies, I always have extra.  I purposely make extra, to avoid having to make a smoothie everyday.
