SPINACH, SPINACH, SPINACH! I have a daughter who I could not get to eat leafy greens. This child of mine also happens to be pregnant. So with the baby coming I have been trying to impress upon her the importance of eating right for her AND the baby! As most women who have had a child already know THE BABY WILL DRAW EVERYTHING IT NEEDS FROM YOU! Yes, the baby will drain you of your calcium, your iron, your essential vitamins and minerals, so YES, YOU will need to over compensate by eating MORE of the ESSENTIALS!
All that being said, guess what my daughter has started doing??? She now likes to put her leafy greens in smoothie form! This is a good thing because she needs to get the iron in by ANY MEANS NECESSARY! So she is getting her healthy doses of spinach accompanied by fruit. And wonder of wonders, she kept it down! Which means THE BABY LIKES SPINACH!!
Now I just have to convince her to smoothie it up on a REGULAR basis! Yes, I also had a GREEN MACHINE! The Green Machine contained spinach, pineapples, bananas, strawberries, and a splash of orange juice! I honestly cannot tell you if it was good or not because I drank mine as if I was in a bar tossing back shots! Yes, I took it to the head, in other words. I picked up my glass, ate my strawberry, took a deep breath, and then drank that green mess like my life depended on it. Swallowed it down in one gulp! Since I used to drink (recreationally of course!) years ago, my daughters were laughing, talking about I activated my LIQUOR LUNGS to drink it so fast! LOL! WHATEVER, I still got it down!
Get your allotted amount of FRUITS and VEGETABLES in by ANY MEANS NECESSARY!! YOUR LIFE depends on it!
