The Green Drink.
Thankfully, Chris is always on the hunt for healthy, and tasty, recipes that work with his regimen and are easy on my bloodsugars. And lately, he's been making this Green Drink. (Capitalized, because it's sort of official and better than when he pretends it's called "Pretty Green," after the Liam Gallagher clothing line - which it is NOT. But Liam Gallagher is beyond funny in the interviews about his clothing line, so if you have a chance to watch this arrogant popstar wax on about his clothing line, you can follow him on Twitter. And now I've digressed myself right into a stupor.)
Point is, it looks a smidge like "You Can't Do That On Television!" sludge but it tastes very nice.
The recipe is pretty basic: Three stalks of celery, one apple, a handful of baby spinach, all chopped up so they can be obliterated by the blender. Add in approximately three quarter cups of water, a good dash of cinnamon, and blend it until the cats' ears get all panicked.
When it's done, you'll have a frothy glass of Green Drink that tastes very nice and is about 8 grams of carbs.
How do you guys get more vegetables in your diet? Since I'm doing what I can to keep the carbs at a minimum to (hopefully) lower my A1C, I'm eating more fresh green beans and celery as snacks, and drinking the Green Drink, too. Will you like it? I don't know - ahhhhh! - but it's currently topping my favorite way to get some extra servings of fruits and vegetables, so I'm for it.
