I am concentrating on boosting my iron stores. As you may know people with Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease have a difficult time absorbing iron and other nutrients. I have been hesitant to throw spinach into a smoothie but I could not even tell it was there! You can taste the earthy strong taste of molasses but I enjoy that. The Dark Pitted Cherries are from a Smeltzer Orchards a Michigan farm in the Lower Peninsula and were purchased back in December from Farmer Q’s in Marquette. I need some antioxidant loveliness today as I am sore from yesterday’s run. It is good to be back at it!

    Yum! Being on a liquid diet this summer, I found that adding veggies to smoothies and the juicer was actually a tasty way to get extra nutrients! What a surprise! (FYI to the general public…no it wasn’t a crazy weight-loss scheme, I HAD to be on a liquid diet 6 wekks post surgery. 🙂 )
