next time you're talking to strangers in a public bathroom

First, I must tell you that I'm reading a lot of smoothie books right now because I need some new inspiration, plus I plan on using my blender a lot more once our new kitchen is set up.  Out of the handful of smoothie books I read this month, the two that show up on this list will eventually be bought because they're so great.  

Also, Matthew Inman is the genius who wrote My Dog, the Paradox, which is one of my all-time most favorite books.  It is a must-read.

Here are my September Favorite Reads Part 2:

Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants by Matthew Inman

* totally inappropriate humor with a lot of creative cursing * it’s the kind of book that you end up sharing with everyone because it’s totally relatable – for instance, do you love burning your face off with sriracha? Have you wondered if computers are out to get us or listened to your spouse talk about strange things in their sleep? Yep, yep and yep? Then you will love this book. *And anytime you are freaking out on the inside you will imagine that one of the freaked-out faces in this book is your face, and then you will laugh hysterically even though you are at work or in a public bathroom, and it will be awesome because it will put the kibosh on freaking out and maybe make other people smile (once you’ve explained the book and pulled out your phone to show them a picture of one of the comics).

The Complete Photo Guide to Needlework by Linda Wyszynski 

* detailed and easy-to-follow instructions * there's a little bit of everything here - embroidery basics, ribbon embroidery, and even sections on sequins and beads!

Best Green Drinks Ever by Katrine Van Wyk

* Simple, easy-to-follow recipes that don't bog you down with hard-to-find ingredients or information overload * while I’ve seen some of the recipes before there are several that use slightly different ingredients, like in their apple pie smoothie they use kale (haven’t tried that) and also walnuts (a nut I haven’t tried for this smoothie) * I really like the layout – whether you’re looking for a smoothie with plenty of fiber or an energy boost you can find it instantly

The Everything Healthy Green Drinks Cookbook by Britt Brandon

* love the ‘best produce for whatever you’re hankering for’ section: heart healthy, stamina etc. so I can find a veggie or fruit that covers a couple areas at once. For instance, kale is excellent for pretty much anything, including stamina and mental clarity. * post-workout smoothies are always awesome: probably my favorites are the ‘dehydration fighter’ and ‘Yogi’s Favorite.’ * Soooo many recipes in this book, and quite frankly a little overwhelming, but it will keep me happy for a long time.
