Liquid Love

Although I had time in between shifts to go home and eat there, I still wanted to incorporate part of my original plan and pick up something fun for dinner. I decided to go somewhere I always walked past but had never gone in- Liquid Nutrition. They offer healthy snack foods like Larabars and Clif bars and a fantastic smoothie menu. After lots of deliberation I settled on the Matcha-Skinny smoothie, a blend of apple juice, mangoes, cantaloupe, matcha green tea and stevia. This huge smoothie has only 161 calories too! And the taste? Amazing. I can't wait to go back and try a few more off their menu. I'm especially intrigued by the Early Bird one, which actually has oatmeal in it!


I snapped a pic of my smoothie as I was walking home from work because it was too good for me not to sip along the way home! When I did get home, I made a quick bowl of 2% plain yogurt, a little more than half a banana (the other part fell into the soapy sink somehow- yeah I don't know how I managed that one....) and a serving of Special K Cinnamon Pecan cereal. I dropped a couple of yogurt covered raisins on top too. Yum!



In true FWDGF style I'm going to treat myself to something tomorrow... Love that little weekly treat :) Have a lovely evening!

Wow, that smoothie sounds awesome ... I might try that blend some day in the future - i.e.: when it isn't darn cold out there ;0) Do get the early bird one - I'm intrigued by it!

Hahaha, poor banana - it ended its 'life' in a soapy sink instead of your tummy :0/ Sad sad life ...

Hehehe, can't wait to see you treat tomorrow ... you're doing so well, so you definitely deserve a treat!!
