My friend from way-back-when, Jennifer Menzer, is in incredible shape. So much so, that it begs the question: “Girl, what do you eat?” As a Nutrition, Fitness, and Lifestyle Coach for Boston Health Coaches, in Boston, Massachusetts, there is no question that she is in peak form, in part, through exercise; however, it is Boston Health Coaches lifestyle approach that got my attention. They advertise the belief that “food, health, and life should be savored.”  How opposite to what we normally think about diet. Their approach is not about deprivation, but about making the right choices instead. Brilliant.

So back to the question about what she eats. This foodie wanted to know. She gave us this wonderful recipe for the ChocoBananaNut Smoothie. Visit her website at Bostonhealthcoaches.com to learn more information and connect with Jennifer and her counterparts at Boston Health Coaches.

Makes 1 serving

1 frozen banana (freeze it with the peel off!)

1 tsp peanut or almond butter

1 tsp cocoa powder

1 tsp chia seeds

small handful kale

Cover with a bit of Almond Milk, blend, and enjoy cold.

As an aside, I served it to my kids, and they had no idea that they were drinking veggies. Bottoms up!
