Fit Tip Friday - The Green Monster

While I'm in the process of losing weight and working out, I thought I'd share some of the tips, tricks, and information I've been learning and gathering along the way!  So here's the first "Fit Tip Friday"!

Every morning for breakfast, I drink a "Green Monster".  The original recipe can be found at Oh, She Glows.  My recipe is almost the exact same thing, just a few minor tweeks.  It has enough protein to keep me full for several hours, some healthy fat from the coconut milk and peanut butter, and the nutritional benefits of spinach and bananas!  It's a delicious and easy way to start the day off with a couple servings of fruits and veggies.  And I promise - you really, truly, for real CANNOT taste the spinach.  I mean it!
