I admit it. I could eat way healthier than I do. I know where every Dairy Queen is between Boulder and Moab. I once drove five hours out of my way to hit the Lotus of Siam in Vegas. I just did a taste-test between cookies from Tee and Cakes, Dish Gourmet, and The Cup. (I said Dish won; my wife thought The Cup was it. Your call.) Anyway, I’m food-addicted.
As I just turned 41, I suppose it’s time to cut out a bit of the junk and mix in a few more fruits, veggies, and what not. Enter the Kale-Beet Blizzard. While dining out with an a-list crew at Pizzeria Locale (yeah, pizza…but great pizza), my bud Lindsay Yaw told us of her morning smoothie recipe (see below). I listened in horror; the idea of beets, kale, and apple-cider vinegar in the same concoction had me flustered…but I gotta say, after three mornings with it, I kinda like it. Read below for the full recipe and give ‘er a shot. Lindsay promised me I’m going to live to be 143 if I drink this thing regularly.
