January 14: National Pastrami Sandwich Day, and a Smoothie Recipe

Happy National Pastrami Sandwich Day! I don't really care, so I'm going to talk about smoothies instead. Stay with me.

Re: Pastrami. In spite of its "you must go to Katz's" fame and presence in romantic comedies, I have never-ever-ever been into pastrami sandwiches. But I do want to acknowledge the occasion. So if you're into pastrami, please, enjoy. Eat your heart out. 

If, on the other hand, you prefer not to indulge in pastrami, how about a smoothie?

Smoothies are another food that I don't particularly care for, among the ranks of frozen yogurt. They usually bore me, quite honestly. I'd rather eat some fruit and nuts than drink it all pureed. 

However, when I was tasked with coming up with a smoothie recipe, I have to say, I think I did a good job. This smoothie has chocolate and banana and almond butter, which I suppose veers it slightly into shake territory, but I don't think anyone will complain.

Oh, and that leads me to the diet tip of the day: HOW TO MAKE ANY MILKSHAKE HEALTH FOOD INSTANTLY. 

Here's how: call it a smoothie. 

Ha! Of course, on the flip side, if you really want to make your smoothie a treat, enjoy it with a homemade ring ding.

OK, enjoy Pastrami day, enjoy a smoothie, you choose your own adventure, OK?
