oh i missed you smoothie

Back to Smoothies today! ( reminder* i need bananas among other things)

Recipe for two:
1.75 scoops pure protein
1/2 c frozen cherries
1/2 c frozen blueberries
1 cup 1% milk
a few small ice cubes
2 T chobani greek yogurt
1 T ground flax
some smart start oat bites ( the last of the box was shreds, so i gave jeff the last six whole pieces and the shreds were great making the smoothie thicker!)

Reading for class now- I read some last night too- Physiology of Taste

"The taste decides; the teeth are put into action, the tongue unites with the palate in tasting, and the stomach soon commences the process of assimiliation."-

"Taste is te sense which communicates to us a knowledge of vapid bodies by means of the sesations which they excite"

" Taste, which has as its excitement appetite, hunger and thirst, is the basis of many operations the result of which is that the individual believes, develops, preserves and repairs the losses occasioned by vital evaporation."
