Who’s that girl?
It’s nothing personal. Really, I don’t have anything against spinach. No traumatic memories of a childhood spent pushing away the greens on my dinner plate. No particular dislike of the taste. No aversion against the consistency of cooked spinach. It’s just that I can think of roughly 12 other vegetables I’d rather eat.
And 40 things I’d rather put in a smoothie. Like blueberries. Or bananas. Strawberrys. Ice cream. Chocolate sprinkles. Maybe it’s the colour of a spinach smoothie that I find off-putting. That green doesn’t just look healthy to me, but as though it tastes healthy. And by healthy I mean like an obligation. So, no thanks.
But then I discovered Ella Woodward’s blog.
