Dinner – Green Smoothie #20 – Strawberry Grape
. Since I was still full from lunch, dinner was going to be a Green Smoothie and a leftover piece of steak…after the smoothie, I didn’t have room for steak, so dinner just ended up being a smoothie, good think I added a scoop of protein to it!

Ingredients:
2 cups baby spinach
1 cup green grapes
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp ground flax
