I thought I'd start simple: banana, spinach, icy water. So I made the smoothie. Yuck. But, because it's a challenge and because I'm determined not to be wasteful, I sipped it and placed it in the fridge between sips. By the time I made it to the last sip, after about 4.5 hours of sipping, it started to taste ok. I imagine with a little more experimenting and adding ingredients like dates, mango, berries and apples to the green stuff (spinach and collards mostly), I could actually get into the green smoothie thing. The benefits seem harmless...actually helpful and it's a great way to cut calories and increase nutrients, antioxidants and fiber, which is a huge reason why, after sipping on spinach for 4.5 hours, I'm looking forward to day two. I won't be posting daily updates, but do wish me luck!
