What I'm eating right now: "Pretty Popeye": Healthy Italian Ice Treat
Might not look that 'pretty', but it tastes damn GOOD/refreshing!
Together, spinach and strawberries complement and improve total nutritional value. One contributes nutrients that its counterpart lacks!
Whole fresh organic spinach leaves
Whole frozen organic strawberries
Just a few ice cubes, a little water, Unsweetened almond milk, Fresh squeezed orange juice - you decide your own ratio based on your taste levels, there is no wrong answer -
Blend well until everything is very finely chopped and place in the freezer for a few hours -
Eat with a spoon
The biggest advantages of eating strawberries and spinach together is that they complement one another to turn a little nutrition into something more substantial. If you ate 1 cup of either one alone, you would only get 2 percent of the recommended daily intake of zinc and thiamine and just 3 percent of the recommend daily intake of calcium and vitamin E. When they’re combined into one dish, you get double the nutrients.
When it comes to vitamin C and vitamin B-6, strawberries fill in the nutritional gap you would experience if you only ate spinach.
You’ll enhance the fiber content five times by eating 1 cup of strawberries with 1 cup of spinach. Strawberries and spinach contain soluble AND insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber lowers cholesterol by binding with it and carrying it out of the body. It also helps keep blood sugar balanced by slowing absorption. Insoluble fiber keeps food moving through the digestive tract and can prevents disease.
BEST USED: Without protein powder, it's best between meals as a treat or as a complement to a protein-based meal
AS A MEAL: You can experiment with this one since it's so simple - adding bananas, cashew milk, ETC! IF you decide not to freeze it and to instead add powdered protein - you can drink it as a smoothie and make it one of your meals.

Hey girl hey...wanted to share a little something I'm excited about right meow -
More on this #superfriends #superfitness collabo coming later this year -- with Jason Layden #Booty #plyojam #workout #fitness #Aliciamarie
My LIMITED EDITION Ms Marvel/Carol Danvers @Coscards is going down at @StanLeeComikaze Expo this coming Halloween weekend! I will be in #cosplay (duh) signing these collectible cards this weekend with my #Coscards cosplay lovelies --- as well as just walking around the con having a good time and hanging with my fellow geeks! Note that the back of the card actually has my "superhero" stats on it - so of course I'm feeling pretty legit right now HA...
More on this later. Back to fitness love/work!
See above: Alicia vs. tonight's "Beyonce'd up" Barbie Alicia Makeup Magick genius Teri Groves did me UP for tonight's #SonsofAnarchy Premiere event -- I don't normally wear a whole lot of #makeup because I'm usually heading to the dance studio or the #gym where makeup is irrelevant. BUT BUT BUT whether it's for a modeling job or for some fun #cosplay -- I absolutely love an excuse just to get "Barbied" up. I actually loved that part of competing -- being a "fitness warrior Barbie" in crystals and heels and big hair for a night or two xo #aliciamariebody #fitness #makeuptransformation #barbie #hair #lovebeyonce #fitspo #beauty #faceup
Trying these #Crest #WhiteStrips.... Heading to an interview in about an hour! Wish me luck! Have a few minutes to kill - kinda obsessed with super white teeth so I decided to finally try these white strip things....have any of you tried them before? Good? This is my second time putting the stickies on...no taste and they don't move. I wouldn't advise eating in them though just because. #smile #whiteteeth #FitSistersBeforeMisters #instaboom #GirlsWhoSquat #health #fitness #Aliciamarie #model #werk #shesquats #abs #AliciaMariebyRogiani #TheBootyBible
