What I'm Into Now: New Music
Feeling like you need a catchy little tune? I love this song, and the video is too cute:
Asa- "Be My Man" And this is really making the rounds lately, but I can't resist- It's a great little love anthem:
Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros- "Home" I Also I have a serious girl crush on Oh Land. I love everything she does!! Listen to this, you'll love it:
Oh Land : "Sun of a Gun" The new Radiohead album dropped on Friday, and this video of Thom Yorke's dance moves is pretty awesome:
Radiohead- "Lotus FLower"
I'm addicted to this conconction I created. I know it sounds gross, but honestly- everyone I've had try this loves it. The orange juice does a good job of covering the veggie taste, but it does turn green. The spinach blends in more thoroughly than the kale, so if you aren't into kale (I'm truly, madly in love with kale, I put it in everything) then just use the spinach. As an added bonus, consuming vitmain c and iron together helps your body absorb both better, so this is really a powerful juice!
1.5 cups of orange juice
1 cup kale leaves (destemmed, with veins removed)
1 cup spinach leaves
Directions: In a blender (or magic bullet, like I have)blend the orange juice and kale together first, for about 60 seconds. Then add spinach, blend for another 60 seconds. Drink and enjoy the fact that you are getting a tonne of healthy stuff in a tasty drink!
Before anyone asks, no, you don't strain it. Get the fibre! The texture is similar to that of a smoothie- sort of thick. I recommend drinking it within 20 minutes of making it, otherwise the veggie bits start to sink to the bottom. And whatever you do, don't use a food processor- I tried this in a food processor once, it totally didn't work. Too chunky, and didn't get that smoothie texture.
I know I usually post sweet treats on here, so ta-da! Drink your veggies, my lovelies.
