Green Smoothies – the why and the what

I drink green smoothies. Everyday or every other day, you can bet that I’m throwing a ton of vegetables into a blender and whipping up a green concoction.

Coffee or tea?

I don’t know about you, but when I drink coffee, I like it with sugar and cream. I especially like those artificially-sweetened creamers in flavors like snickerdoodle, hazelnut, French vanilla, or pumpkin spice. Yummmm. And the sugar? A spoonful please! I admire people who drink their coffee black. I just cannot do it. I only learned to like coffee in college. ...
