Joe got up on Sunday and asked me to make him a smoothie. I almost fell over. I’m the smoothie drinker at our house.
Being a wise wife, I didn’t act surprised or even make a smart remark. Instead, I quickly rattled off some options – he went for blackberries, frozen tropical fruit, and kefir.
Living with me can’t be easy. I’m always talking about nutrients, phytochemicals, and eating greens. After I bake something new, I ask him to try it. He tells me he loves it, then I rattle off how it’s good for him. Irritating, I know.
So when he asked for a smoothie, I was thrilled. This time I kept quiet. I didn’t tell him that blackberries are rich in vitamins A and C, nor did I mention that kefir was great for his digestive system. And I most certainly didn’t point out that his smoothie was sweetened with stevia and I snuck in a teaspoon of chia seeds. It was more fun to just watch him enjoy it.
