Send us a photo of your “Green Smoothie Fail!”

gsgfail #Gsglife  #greensmoothiefail

I was in a hurry, and last week, picking my son up from school to rush him to our dentist, Dr. Michelle Jorgenson in American Fork, Utah, I dropped my quart of green smoothie. It was all over in the car, as well as the junior high parking lot. In fact, I was late, so I had to take my white jacket and put it in on the seat, so I could sit on it, rather than in a puddle of green goo.

I texted my Green Smoothie Fail to an old high school friend of mine. He wrote back, “Robyn, if that was a steak you were eating, it wouldn’t have made a mess. In fact, you could have just picked it up and continued eating it.”

It’s worth the price, to be healthy. I’ve had blenders full of greens blow up, sky high, in the kitchen, needing a ladder to clean it off the ceiling. And this is hardly the first one I’ve dropped, in the car. I texted this photo to the GSG staff, and Kami wrote me back about her own Green Smoothie Fail:

Her husband was driving, and she was drinking it at a stoplight. He lurched forward and the green goodness ended up all over her face and down her shirt.

I decided not to be grumpy about this particular Fail. When I got my son to his appointment, I went outside in the nice weather, with a bucket and washcloth donated by Dr. Jorgenson’s staff, and my car ended up as clean as the day I bought it. Silver lining! I was wearing yoga pants and a tank top, so I was even dressed for the occasion, and chose to think about how nice and lucky THAT was. Rather than broken glass and my lost lunch and inconvenience. There’s almost always a way to look at something differently and change the energy.

Even if you read this blog months after it’s posted, we want your #GreenSmoothieFail photos! Send them to support123@greensmoothiegirl.com! Then it’s a photo op rather than a disaster!

  1. I don’t have a photo but I had a huge fail at work! I bring my smoothie in for breakfast every day and about 6 weeks ago I was going upstairs to a meeting and when I opened the door at the top of the stairs I dropped the container and it went everywhere! All over the door, the wall, the floor. I was horrified! I ran to the bathroom to clean it up before anyone saw it and when I came back the Assistant Vice Chancellor of my division had just come up the stairs and was standing there looking at it, probably wondering what it was and who was responsible. Fortunately she saw me with my paper towels and was gracious about it. Then my boss walked by and saw! I was lucky it wasn’t on my clothes. She was cool about it and even made a comment that she’d be grossed out if she didn’t already know what it’s made of. It was a lot of paper towels before that was cleaned up! Yikes!

  2. Dear Greensmoothygirl,
    I noticed you are talking about non-toxic cancer treatments and thought i should tell you about my friend who has Leuchemia. I started making green smoothy drinks for him as a thank you for helping me so much since my husband died in 2012 of ALS. His recent plane trip to his specialist doctor in Portland Oregon proved that he is in remission and no longer needs the medication he was taking. He attributes this miracle to the green smoothy drinks i made for him.
    Most of my drinks consist of dark greens like kale and chard with a “Smart Greens” powdered mix from the health food store, strawberries, pineapple, and other seasonal fruits, mixed with “Rice Drink” and water.
    Thanks for inspiring us to live healthy, fresh whole lives.
    Gail

  3. Unfortunatley, i don’t have a picture but a thought. As a muralist and prop maker i can appreciate the colors. The green becoming an element of surprise. There is never a mistake in art. The light brown car seat, silver lining, black trim and red gives me an idea to paint with those exact colors. It reminds me of all the times my green goodness spilled and sprinkled all over. Thank u for sharing ur story. It’s definately very creative and inspiring to make light of something.

    Warmest regards, Teresa Flynn
