    Yum – I love green monster smoothies! I’m a huge fan of Naked, too, but rarely get it. I love how you share the process of making recipes – it’s nice to read about failures as well as successes. My kitchen’s definitely full of failures, haha!

    First of all, this looks awesome. I tried the first one yesterday and it was really good.
    I just wanted to tell you how much I really appreciate your blog. I’m at university too, and have always struggled with my weight. Within the past 4 months, I’ve gone from 221 pounds to a current 187. I stumbled across your blog the other day and was really inspired. I especially love the pantry staples and I’m definitely looking forward to future posts. Thanks for having an awesome blog Jessica, and thanks for helping me get healthier. ^_^

    Melinda,
    I know! Making your own recipes is really hard, especially if you’re trying to make it healthy.

    R.C.,
    Aw, thank you so much, it is really inspiring to read that. I’m posting a recipe this weekend and I hope you get a chance to make it.
    And congratulations on your weight loss! That is incredible :) only good things can come out of your dedication to health and wellness.
