No, it’s not another green smoothie, but it is still an extremely yummy strawberry, banana, pineapple smoothie and totally loaded with good stuff to help improve health and lightly de-tox. Plus the pink color is perfect for the upcoming St. Valentine’s Day, one of my all-time favorite holidays, being a romantic at heart!
Today I hit the 10 pound weight loss point since the first week in January . . . I am doing this slowly and intelligently through a change in what I put in my tummy. I also joined Weight Watchers to someday have a body like spokeswoman, Jennifer Hudson (in my dreams at 56 years old!).
Oh, yes, I did blow it (eating healthfully) for one lunch this week when Mr. M. and P. (meat and potatoes) and I stopped ‘where the parking lot is full’ at a local new and booming BBQ joint, “The Squealing Pig”.
However, I did order chicken instead of pulled pork and I did have sweet potato fries instead of regular white potato fries. Oh yea, baby . . . it was wonderful! And absolutely no sweet tea, just lemon water. Hey, one has to splurge every now and then to stay on this health journey, don’t ya think?
I hope that you enjoy this special Valentine’s Strawberry, Banana & Pineapple Smoothie !
