Monster Bread

So, we believe it’s safe to say that the idea of a “green monster” has successfully infiltrated the blog world.

You have the classic smoothie, baked oats, overnight oats, and tonnes more! If you’re a food blogger, and you haven’t tried it yet… what the heck have you been up to?!? It’s seriously delicious, and crazy good for you. It’s one of our favourite ways to add veggies into a meal or snack that normally wouldn’t have any.

Because so much has been done with the Green Monster, we wanted to do something that hasn’t been done yet (or at least we haven’t seen!)

Without further ado:

It’s green!
