Green Thumbs & Monsters

So tomorrow being Earth Day, and me being a bit obsessed with themes & planning....here is how we're getting our green on:

- Plant a tree with Chloe in our backyard.

- Go to Home Depot to pick up seedlings for the Salad Garden we're going to start. I am super stoked about having a veggie garden to pull from every night! Here's what we're going to plant:
- Spinach
- Romaine
- Kale
- Mixed Bell Peppers
- Cukes
- Green Onions
- Tomatoes
- Strawberries
- Spruce up my container herb garden

- Attend webinar with David Wolfe at 12p. He is considered to be one of the world's top authorities on natural health, beauty nutrition, & raw/organic superfoods. He is also president of FTPF which has set a goal of planting 18 billion fruit trees on earth. {sign up here if interested in webinar} He also records podcasts on Itunes which I think might be just the trick to get me through my....

- 1oK outdoor run tomorrow. This is my last practice run before the big day next weekend!

- Make a delish Green Monster after my run. This is my latest addiction:
- 1 scoop hemp protein powder
- 1 tsp dark chocolate powder
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen cherries (found here for all you local gals)
- 1 tsp chia seeds
Blend, sip, smile & wipe that green moustache off your lips!

Hope you all have the chance to do something earthly tomorrow, and remember.....
