Day Seventy Two

I woke up this morning with a scratchy throat and now I'm sitting in a hotel in downtown Seattle trying my best not to talk because its so painful. I guess after four cases of strep in my house it was bound to get me sooner or later. My green cleanse can't come soon enough! I made a double batch of smoothie today and brought enough with me to have one for breakfast tomorrow morning.
  • 1 whole pineapple (cored & skin removed)
  • 1 whole mango (diced)
  • 1 whole papaya (seeds & all)
  • 4 ginormous handfuls of spinach
  • water
  • ICE

It made two blenders full and it was......not good. Its spicy. I'm not sure if that's just papaya or if that's the seeds. I drank my quart today, but I'm not sure I'll be able to stomach any more of it tomorrow. Thankfully I'll be home tomorrow evening, so I can make myself a new batch. I will not miss a day simply because the only smoothie I have available is gross. I'll just put my big girl panties on and bottoms up ~ if need be. Thankfully it should not need be!

  1. It was probably the papaya seeds. I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to eat those. I use papaya in my smoothies all the time and it tastes wonderful.
