 A delicious smoothie made with wild blueberries, banana, almond milk and spinach for a nutritional boost. Finished with a sprinkle of chia seeds for a healthy dose of omega-3.

Last night I had this out of control craving for broccoli after my workout. Just steamed broccoli with sea salt and pepper. Quite ridiculous really, but I absolutely had to have it. So off to Target I went. Except you know when you walk into Target, it’s not like you’re walking right out. Nope, you’re going to be there for at least an hour filling your cart with things you never knew you needed. Classic example: Vanilla Cupcake Goldfish. They basically taste like sweetened little animal cracker cookies. And if you’ve been here a while, you know how I LOVE animal crackers (especially frosted). Oh and also, coconut milk conditioner. YUM.

I finally managed to leave Target with two bags full. By the time I got home I WAS STARVING. Do you ever get to the point where you’re so hungry that you can’t even think? I thought about breaking open a jar of peanut butter in my car on the ride home, but knew that wouldn’t lead to anything good.

Once home, I basically destroyed an entire bag of steamed broccoli for dinner. Obviously that filled me up, but only for one episode of The Vampire Diaries, so of course I had to make something else. Since I’ve been really trying to clean up my diet (minus the goldfish), I opted for one of my favorite power smoothies.

 Wild Blueberry Banana Spinach Power Smoothie

Lately I’ve been really into blueberries in just about anything. WILD blueberries to be exact. I like the name and I like the flavor. In fact I kinda feel like Tarzan after eating them.

Really though, they’re SO much better then the conventional ones. I usually purchase mine from Trader Joe’s, but if you can’t find them there, opt for organic blueberries. I promise you’ll notice the flavor difference.
