I'm hiding vegetables from my boyfriend

So I sound a bit crazy. I swear I'm not crazy. But then again people who are actually crazy never think they are actually crazy...

Well back to my confession. I have been on a smoothie kick lately and have really felt the need to push the veg/fruit intake up a notch. So smoothies and more smoothies it is! 

Wellll Boyfriend is not as big of a healthy eating fan as I am so sometimes I have to trick him... Case in point spinach in the smoothies. The guy is lucky enough to have a charming girlfriend who will make him a smoothie for breakfast before work in the first place! 

On Sunday I came home from one of my favorite places, Trader Joe's, and announced: "oh baby do we have smoothie makings!" For reals. I did. I told him about all the goodies I bought- oodles of bananas, frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple, frozen berry medley, milk, the best darn yogurt you have ever tasted this side of the Atlantic (more on that later), and spinach. 

Boyfriend made a face and said "not the spinachhh". "Fine, not in yours." I say. 

Little does the guy know he has been sucking down a "delicious! yummy! thank you so much honey!" smoothie every day this week that contains a handful of spinach. This guy is so much healthier and he doesn't even know it. Score one for the girlfriend please. :) 

I hope you all have wonderful healthy weekends! What do you have planned? I'm STOKED that one of my besties is in town this weekend and we are going to my beach yoga class then grabbing lunch at a delicious sandwich place afterwards, then shopping! 

Yay for the weekend and yay for besties!!!! Have a great one sparklers!!


  1. I love this. That's so funny that you have to "trick" him into being healthy but he doesn't even know it!

  2. My favorite kind of healthy is when it just tastes good, so it's usually not that hard. But I feel a little Charlie's Angels-esk anyway :)

  3. Love this! Whenever I make smoothies(or anything really where I can!) I try to sneak in veggies as well! My boyfriend is all for his smoothies and tons of delicious foods but NOT the veggies! Glad I am not the only one hehe

    1. Haha! I'm glad I'm not the only one!

  4. Hahaha this is so funny!
    My boyfriend thinks I am CRAZY for putting spinach in my smoothies.

    I think I could live off of smoothies and be alright ;)

    Happy weekend, girl!

  5. Smart thinking and what he doesn't know won't hurt him. Actually, it will help him!
