The Birds Are Tweeting and So Am I...

What a beautiful Spring day! I couldn't imagine working inside on this glorious sunny afternoon. So I set up a makeshift office on my front porch and whipped up a refreshing Retro WW treat.

The Purple Cow
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup blueberries
2 tsp artificial sweetener
1 tsp lemon extract
3 ice cubes

Process in blender until smooth. This little purple smoothie is yummy and oh-so-refreshing. Seriously. Try this one! If you don't have buttermilk, just use skim milk...that's what I did. (Shhh-don't tell Jean!)

Well--It's back to work now, but the little birdies in my yard are reminding me to tell you all to come on over and follow the 1972 Retro WW Experiment on Twitter. Yep - We tweet now! I know... it's not very retro, but I still think Jean would approve.

That looks quite delightful! I like the name, too (and I really would rather see than be one, because if I was one, someone would drink me)

Just found your blog, looks like quite an adventure, I look forward to reading more.

I've just started my own weight loss blog, nothing quite as good as this one, but one to keep me motivated (I hope).

If you have time, please swing by

Trying to do a "Clean Eating" style of WW I'd omit the fake sugars but maybe use a little raw honey in place, if that's even needed or a teaspoon of raw sugar. Looks soooo good!
Definitely a keeper! I've been on a total smoothie binge. They really fill you up not to mention when you make them from scratch you know exactly what's going into them!

Thanks for sharing!
