Let this meal refresh you! It’s amazingly healthy and fills you up without feeling so stuffed you can’t not wear sweatpants for the rest of the day. Actually, I think I may have been wearing sweatpants when I ate this once. Well whatever. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing as long as you’re getting to eat this pure tastiness.
