Green Smoothie

There has been a lot published lately on the futility of dieting and exercising for long term weight loss.

Instead of feeling hopeless, I feel like fighting. In our culture of excess and poor eating habits, I have lived with a love-hate relationship with food. In a nutshell, when dieting, I am obsessed with what I cannot eat. When breaking a diet, I consume with guilt without thought or taste.

I work to perceive food as a beautiful, life giving gift. I make each selection with care as I know it will be broken down into it's smallest elements in my body to provide nourishment.

With that in mind, I give you my smoothie of the day... cilantro, avocado, mango, lime and water. As fresh as possible in the cold Midwest.
