I can thank my toddler for turning me into a smoothie junkie. What a great way to start the morning. But, if it wasn't for Lucas's refusal to put anything green in his mouth, I might not have found benefit in these amazing drinks. Slowly, I developed an elixir chock full of greens, disguised as candy. With just enough fruity sweetness to trick any toddler's, pesky palette. After each enthusiastic gulp, I felt the warmth of sweet victory wrap its arms around me. TAKE THAT LUCAS! I vaguely recall the theme song from "Rocky" echo in my head. The moral of the story is, think twice before defying your mother. She will always have good intentions and much more wisdom. And as the great Eddie Murphy once pointed out, she can throw a mean shoe. Just like a boomerang.
