Power smoothies are my new best friend

In order to get enough veggies in this body of mine I have taken to smoothies. This bright green cup of goodness is made from:

3 cups spinach
1 tablespoon flaxseed
1 small banana
4 strawberries
1/2 cup water
4 ice cubes

The flaxseed slows the release of the sugar from the banana and strawberries so it doesn't spike my blood sugar and cause inflammatory issues. It tastes surprisingly un-spinach like and I got a whole salad's worth of veggies in my body. Another point for Team Stacey!
