Green Smoothies

When I came home from visiting Laura and Greta I saw that BJs had the Nutri Ninja Auto-IQ with Smooth Boost on sale.  Greta had one that I tried and I thought why not.  I wasn't sure that I would use it that much or that it would be any better than my ancient Oster blender but decided to get one and that we would try some healthy "green" recipes.  The next day I bought some kale (already had the spinach) and yesterday I made our first green smoothie - - not bad so I'm putting some smoothie recipes here.  The recipe book that comes with the Ninja has the ingredients listed in some glowy light green and is really hard to read.

How to Clean a Burnt Pot

This happened to me once before, only much worse but I was so frantic about getting it fixed that I never took any pictures.  This time I was much more relaxed, even though it occurred in the middle of my cooking, so I took pictures.
I was making chili and also catching up on watching "How to Get Away with Murder."  I guess I got really engrossed in the show and when I got up to stir the chili (I hadn't but in the tomatoes or beans yet) it was all burnt on the bottom.  I quickly shut off the stove and transferred what I had so far into a bowl.  I then looked up how to clean the pot since I didn't remember and I didn't document it the last time.  Below is what my pot looked like to start.  All that you see was firmly stuck to the pot.
