Last night I ate horribly... fish and chips doused in malt vinegar with tartar sauce and two glasses of chardonnay, preceded by onion rings and followed by a chocolate and peanut butter sundae.
It was fantastic.
And this morning I feel yucky. So I'm going to take my vitamins and eat really well today, starting with the Glowing Green Smoothie I recently read about in People StyleWatch's July issue, p. 135. (You never know where you're going to find a good smoothie recipe.)
It's nutritionist Kimberly Snyder's signature smoothie (she posted her recipe on her blog here... it is a little different from the one published in StyleWatch that I went by), and to make it you need:
1 1/2 c water
a head of romaine lettuce, chopped (I'm using about 10 oz from a pre-washed bag)
3-4 stalks of celery
1 apple, cored & chopped (I'm using a Fuji)
1 pear, cored & chopped (I'm using a D'Anjou)
juice from 1/2 a fresh lemon
Combine it all in a blender or food processor - this makes 2-4 servings.
It's called Glowing Green because the enzyme-rich fruits and vegetables are supposed to give your skin a glow. I need it.
I feel better already.
I'd never thought about lettuce in a smoothie but I really like it combined with the fruit and celery. It's very refreshing and the lemon adds just a little bit of citrusy tang. I love cilantro so I think I'll include that next time.
How do you make it up to yourself after a night of bad eating?
