I am a frequent convention participant, whether it be as a staff member, exhibitor, or attendee. When you’re working a convention, it’s really difficult to stay healthy. As luck would have it, my friend Dawna at Steam Crow mentioned to me this past weekend that very same thing, and requested I do a series of recipes and tips to eating healthy. While that is in development (with possibly even an interview with Dawna! I haven’t asked her yet. Shhh!), I wanted to share the recipe that gets me through convention mornings (besides my coffee).


London Comic Con 2015

It’s important to note that it’s very hard to travel with a blender, for space and electrical purposes. If you’re driving to a convention, and staying in a hotel, by all means, drag your blender! If you’re flying, I don’t recommend hauling it with you. There may be a way you can order this smoothie from the kitchen, though, so keep the recipe handy!

As I mentioned, I got to spend a little time talking to my friend Dawna while Steam Crow was an exhibitor at Denver Comicon. Because I’m in Denver for now, I was able to drink this smoothie every morning, as well as taking my airborne every morning and evening, to keep from getting con crud. If you’ve been to a con, you’ve probably experienced this two-week post-con illness that ranges from simple congestion to full-on, massive, achey sick. In order to circumvent the inevitable proximity to people who feel it’s okay to go out in public and drag their sick with them, coupled with the percentage of the population who not only doesn’t wash their hands after going to the restroom, but also forgoes the courtesy sanitizer after a sneeze/nose pick/kleenex usage, I increase my vitamin intake at least double.

Also, gross! Wash your hands, folks. Stop touching things until you have, please. Thanks.

Anyway, this smoothies is so delicious, and large enough to qualify as a full meal. It gives me energy, stamina, and protection from the sickies on the convention floor.
