It freaks me out.
Here's what I mean.
I've been on a bit of a quest to become more "green". And really, it's quite selfish. It's not that I'm a tree hugger or anything like that, I just want to make sure that I keep myself and my family as healthy as possible. Most of my crunchy adventures lately have all been to improve health. Well, this week I made the mistake of reading about 400 too many articles about plastic and all those nasty little chemicals that have been leaching into my food and *gasp* whatever is in Claire's sippy cup! So, now I''m on a mission to clear out my tupperware cabinet and replace it with glass containers, and find a stainless steel water bottle for myself and probably one for Claire too. One of the sites a came upon (and it's now in my Reader list as well), NatureMoms even has a great giveaway for a BPA free water bottle.
Browsing this site, I also came across this great recipe. Now Claire asks for her green smoothie every afternoon and I'm having no problems getting a little spinach into her. I altered it a bit to according to this and to fit my diet...
Blend 2 C water and @ 2 C spinach
Add 1 banana, 1 C frozen strawberries, 1 C mixed berries
1-2 Tbsp flax oil
And there you go, I yummy way to get veggies into the kiddos!
Really, you can't taste the spinach at all...
