Sloppy Janes, Green Monster

I got up this morning and ran out the door to Body Pump. When I got home, I finally got up the courage and tried my first green monster!! I decided to ease my way in with the following combo:

1 cup spinach
1/2 cup milk
1 banana
1 scoop Green SuperFood powder
ice

Mixed it all up in the magic bullet. After my first sip, I kind of thought it was a little ...meh. After my second and third sip, I got over the slight grass flavor and really started to enjoy it. By the end, I loved it!

I drank my monster around 7 am and my tummy didn't start talking until 10:45ish! I was surprised just how full the monster kept me.

After a full day of work, some cleaning and some errands, I got started on dinner. The star of the show was the watermelon I picked up at Publix:


I wish I could get fresh summer fruit all year long!! Frank was not that excited about the watermelon...


Alongside the watermelon, Josh and I enjoyed broccoli, sloppy janes, and more of the bread/rolls that Kath and Matt brought us. Josh's plate:


Now its time for So You Think You Can Dance! I forgot this show was on for a few weeks so I feel a little out of the loop!
Are you already getting excited for the weekend?? I know I am ;)

I knew you'd like it!! I think I need to add more of each ingredient to mine so they have more staying power. I definitely need to get me a magic bullet before I head back to school.

I didn't know where to respond to your ?...but I think I'll go whereever work (if I get a job!) takes me. But HH is a bit small and laid back for my personality...and lackin' a WF and TJs :(

Mrs. LC said...

haha I love Frank. :) Although I'd be a lot more excited for that watermelon than he is!

SYTYCD is pretty good tonight! Hope you're enjoying your evening!

Maria said...

Was it really good? ha! I don't know if I could stomach that in the morning:)
I am seriously addicted to watermelon, I eat it every day. I could only eat that and be content. I know I can't though:)
I am watching SYTYCD right now. Love that show! Have a good night!

Lori said...

I am a little disappointed that Frank wasn't excited about the watermelon. Come on Frank, it's fresh summer fruit! :)

The green monster consumption taking over the health blog world has been very intriguing. I may have to try one soon.

Bec said...

Jessica said...

Green Monsters are great!

I loooove watermelon so Frank better get out of my way! ;)

Holly said...

Yay you tried a Green Monster!! If I go more than a day or two without one I CRAVE them. They look nast but I just can't get enough. :-)

I am SO ready for the weekend!! The week has gone by surprisingly fast so far (probably jinxed it!).

Rose said...

Congrats on de-virginizing with the GM! :)

I am so looking forward to the weekend - old friends are visiting!

burpandslurp said...

Wow, another green monster convert! I was really surprised it would be that satisfying...I never thought liquids could fill you up so nicely!

heyitstay said...

I missed a few weeks of that show as well, so I'm a little lost now! I don't know who exactly I like/want to win! Better catch up!

I agree on the fruit! I made a comment today regarding the bummer that is living where fresh, local fruit is only available for a few months out of the year. The sloppy janes look delish! What's your recipe? If it is obvious on your sidebar, I apologize, I didn't see it.

Miz said...

why can I not get into the very concept of sloppy janes?
Im sure its because of the icky sloppy joes of my youth but...the word sloppy ANYTHING and Im not interested.

I am interested in FRANK :)
I love me some FRANKage.

What does a green monster do?

Yum Yucky said...

I'm so ready for the weekend! This week has been at least 15 days long. Rrrr! (sloppy janes, I like that)

Krista said...

HA! Frank is too cute! Look at him all snuggled up!

Your plate of watermelon makes me want some right now!!

insideiamdancing said...

congrats on your first green monster! I have yet to try one...

I am BEYOND excited for this weekend :) Hope you have something fun planned!

K from ksgoodeats said...

That monster has some serious staying power!! Frank is such a cutie - I just want to cuddle with him :D

I'm not that excited about the weekend - the weather is supposed to be horrible. Where's summer because it's not in MI!

Finsmom said...

Ive been wanting to try the monster!

teresa said...

i'm going to have to try the green monster sometime. It looks so full of good stuff!

Don't you love a nice sweet watermelon. I live for summer just for that!

Tina said...

I need to give that SuperGrass stuff another chance.

Aggie said...

I had your sloppy janes last night too! they were so so good! even my carnivorous husband loved them! can't wait to eat my leftovers for lunch!

Ok, so should I try this green monster or what?? where did you get the mix?

Maria Rose said...

Oh my, is Frank a bulldog?

mtbcy said...

I am completely addicted to "So you think you can dance!" It's my favorite. The sloppy janes look so delicious! I can't wait to give them a try. Definitely dinner tonight or tomorrow :) Thanks for the great suggestion!

Anna said...

spinach AND green superfood! You're supa hardcore. I'm definitely looking forward to the weekend!

ttfn300 said...

aw frank! i LOVE watermelon :) and those joes look great!

Alison said...

The sloppy janes sound great! I made my own version of them a few weeks ago - looks disgusting as lentils often do but tastes great.

Katie said...

I am so ready for the weekend! So You Think You Can Dance has been a bit disappointing this season with the exception of the very first episode. I still really like it. Just doesn't feel like there's the same level of talent that they had last year.

Your Frank pictures always make me smile. :)

Maria said...

I already commented but I love your new picture:)

Michelle said...

wow...great blog.

I have to try Sloppy Janes! I had no idea there were so many options for healthy food!

RickyRae said...

Hmmmmmm....I'm not quite brave enough to drink spinach!! Maybe someday I'll get the courage, lol :)

CaSaundraLeigh said...

I keep telling myself I NEED to try these sloppy janes--one day soon!
