Today was our end of the school year luncheon for the YMCA staff. We went to the Manderin Chinese buffet restaurant. There wasn’t a lot of entrees that were vegan but they did have lots of vegetables and fruits. I ended up loading up my plate with lots of greens, mushrooms, carrots and various other veggies. And of course plenty of fruits, cantaloupe, pineapple, watermelon, grapes and mangoes. I left the chicken balls and fried rice for everyone else!
Today at work was a great day, I took my Vitamix blender into work and made smoothies for all the kids. Some were brave enough to try the spinach smoothie and actually liked it! After having such a big lunch I decided that a smoothie was in order for tonight’s meal. So of course another great green smoothie for me.
- 2 oranges
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 mango
- 1 banana frozen.
- Extra fruit to top smoothie
- Juice the 2 oranges with citrus juicer. Pour juice in to blender. Add spinach. Remove skin and pit from mango add to blender. Add banana and blend till smooth.
- Top with extra fruit.
