I’m such a fan of sweet potato. I used to eat whole sweet potatoes all by myself, multiple times a week, every week. Oh, the good days. Now, I sync food with my cycle phases so I mostly consume sweet potatoes during my luteal phase. The more I cycle-sync, the more I’ve adapted my cravings to phase appropriate foods. So, this shake is a mash-up of WomanCode recommended luteal foods like sweet potato, cauliflower, and peach. More deets about cycle-syncing here, but you don’t need to follow WomanCode to enjoy this smoothie! Read more
Oftentimes, I make some really fantastic smoothies and I don’t measure. If you know me, I’m all about cooking with as few utensils as possible! Simply, a handful of frozen this or that and a dollop of nut butter save me from having to wash measuring cups. As much as I love smoothies, I dislike having to wash the blender and blades so I want to minimize dirty dishes! For the sake of perfecting my beet and greens smoothie, I whipped out the measuring cups.
When I was younger, I was not a fan of vegetables. Like, at all. Occasionally I would eat salad out of necessity to add color to my plate. Though, I was definitely disappointed to learn that my favorite tomatoes and potatoes were not really even actual vegetables!
