When I don’t have time to eat lunch…

I drink it! Here is another recipe inspired by the FFVK:

Kale and fruit smoothie:

½ c water
½  an orange
½  a banana
¼ c unsweetened, frozen blueberries
¼ c raw spinach
1 c raw kale

Liquefy the ingredients in a blender until the mixture has reached your desired consistency. According to the Dietitians of Canada’s Recipe Analyzer, this recipe has about 166.4 calories, 79.3 μg of folate, 776.9 mg of Potassium, 623.3 μg of vitamin A, 130.4 mg of vitamin E, 2 mg of Iron, 7.5 g of fibre, 4.3 g of protein, 1.4 g of fat, 39.4 g of carbohydrate, 46.1 mg of Sodium, and 22.5 g of sugar. I also added a packet of vitamin B12 supplement and a couple of goji berries (which were not included in the calorie count). I usually pour this, or some variation of it, in to my Thermos and drink it while at school or work.
