On May 17, 2014 the girls were back in the lounge for another Girl Talk Lounge Health & Wellness Edition.

The topic: Does sugar give you real energy? Our special guest Brandi Redrick, Health expert taught our teens the truth about sugar. The girls engaged in an activity to find out how much sugar is in Coke Cola soda, and Monster energy drinks?

We also gathered to make a green smoothie. See below for recipe:

Handful of spinach
Raw almonds or almond butter
2 frozen bananas
10 frozen strawberries
1 avocado
1/2 cup of water or coconut water.

Blend ingredients in blender and enjoy!
