in the same vein that i’ve never been a cat gal, i have also never been one to down a smoothie for breakfast.  like, never.  never went to an orange julius, never went to a jamba juice.  ok, maybe once in the 80s i had an orange julius.  me, i like the act of chewing food and swallowing food too much.  why grind up chewable food in a blender?  i would hear about people going on liquid diets and could never imagine such torture.   i need the chomp, chomp, chomp satisfaction. 

so a coupla few weeks ago i went on a raw foods diet, just as a way to drop a couple pounds and purge the bod a little.  nothing dramatic, nothing drastic.  i ate a ton of food.  fruits, veggies, raw almond butter.  and drank a ton of tea.  ginger tea is my favorite and i don’t really like tea, but i do enjoy a ginger tea.  and this is when i decided to invite the smoothie into my life for a little variety.  not the “green drink” that i probably should be having every morning, with fresh veggies.  i went the fruit route.  bananas and blueberries and flax seed and some organic juice and ice cubes whipped up in my magic bullet

turns out i like them. 

i’d probably love them with rum or vodka, but so far haven’t experimented.  i told you, i’m trying to purge.  cleanse the highways and byways that run through the inner workings of this body of mine. 

i’m pretty sure the main reason i like these smoothies is cuz i get to use the bigger vintage glassware i’ve collected and never use cuz i don’t normally like to drink out of big glasses.  smoothies are MADE for vintage tumblers. 


so, what’s that green candleholder in the background, i hear you asking. 

when i picked it up to look at it in the thrift store i couldn’t believe when it said “denmark” on the bottom.  not to mention it was dirt cheap.  almus keramik.  i’ll take it. 

that’s it for me.  i’m drinkin’ smoothies.  earth shattering, i know.

  1. Yeah… I think it’s time you embrace this inner cat lady thing that you’ve reluctantly fallen into.

    As for the smoothies, I come up with these concoctions that I would never offer up to anyone else. Like soup, smoothies are a clean out the fridge endeavor for me… with spiralina! Currently it’s mangoes (yum, sounds good enough) and these beets that I baked with olive oil + oranges for a very long time + they are still super crunchy????!!!??? I dig ’em

    Oh, and nice candle stick holder.

      do you know i have never cooked a beet? i’ve never bought a beet in my life. there are so many things needed to be done! and wait – you voluntarily use spirulina? the only thing i know about it is i bought spirulina tablets the first time i did a raw diet because it was recommended to me by a nutritionist friend for protein. the smell about brought me to my knees when i opened the cap. but i spiralina’d, i did.

      i’ve got a mango in the fridge waiting to be smoothied. it’s time for me to get creative.
