This recipe is so so simple, and I love it.
I love the feeling of eating something delicious that I know is good for me. It almost feels naughty to eat delicious food, even when I now it’s filled with nutritional value.
The fear of eating good food always appears for me while drinking smoothies, and I know that I need to get over that feeling so that I can continue eating healthful foods. I even feel bad eating nice cream or roasted vegetables sometimes because they are just too darned yummy! Does anyone else get this way?
Kitty Apollo also convinces me that it’s too tasty to be healthful by sneaking up and trying to lap some up. He really is a teeny little monster, people. Even when we have just fed him, he will still fly across the rooms with a screeching meow to land on our plate and lick a piece of our meal. Super rude. And honestly, even when I wake up at night and come out to the kitchen, he is just sitting on the stool below his food cupboard. I don’t even think he sleeps. He just plots ways to devour more food.
In honor of his evil adorableness, I call this candid piece the Progression of Disobedience:
(I made that one with water instead of any milk, and it was purdy okay)
I try to be upset with him, but he is just too cute for that. I always end up snuggling and kissing and forgiving him for being the evil little beast that he is and disrupting my beautiful smoothie Instagram pictures.
Take Apollo’s word for it here, and try the coconut berry smoothie for yourself. If you do, let me know how it is!
As always, thank you for stopping by.
