Going Green Smoothie

Going green is really cool right now.  It should have been cool a lot earlier, but now you can collect your reusable grocery bags without shame, you can ride your bike to work and look like a hipster (say what you will, but 'hip' is in the name), you can shop at fancy grocery stores and try new foods you've never heard of before.  Basically, the door is open.

There are drawbacks to doing your part of course.  Now you have to store all your reusable bags.  You show up dripping with sweat everywhere you go.  You're spending more on groceries than rent.  But you should do it anyway.
There are a lot of things you should do that aren't always convenient.  Like exercising.  Like eating healthy.  Part of our problem is that we think these things are hard.  'It's hard to remember my bags when I get to the checkout.'  It's not that hard, just put them in your car.  'Exercise is hard."  Find something you like, it feels less like a chore.  'I don't have time to make healthy meals, I'll eat out instead.'  You do have time.  You just do.

This smoothie takes about 30 seconds.  It will give you energy all morning.  It's full of things that are good for you: protein-packed spinach, fresh pineapple, grapes, and banana.  You also get to feel cool when everyone asks you what you're drinking.  Another perk: it tastes really really good!
