“What do you want for dinner?” Those without food allergies don’t realize how easy this question is to answer for them. Add the fact that you can’t eat a list of common foods in quick cooking recipes and coming up with an answer to that question just got harder. We’ve sort of been in a rut with dinner lately.

Surprisingly you can’t even taste it, but the color that it becomes is a dead giveaway. Adding the 15 leafs of spinach turns the entire smoothie a nice greenish brown.
