I hope everyone had a great weekend and participated in some St. Patrick’s Day festivities! I made sure to wear lots of green, including my new favorite compression socks, and treated Bob and I to a Shamrock Shake.« Continue »
Sunday ended our 7-day Green Smoothie Challenge, and Bob and I were actually a bit disappointed it was over. We would both love to have these EVERY day, as it’s the perfect afternoon snack. Being back to work full-time makes it more difficult. However, we will continue to enjoy these as often as we can!« Continue »
Since Bob and I are having a green smoothie every day for the first week of 2013, I thought I’d share a few of the variations we’ve had so far. And in case you still haven’t tried adding spinach to a smoothie–I promise–you can’t taste it!« Continue »
Happy New Year! Bob and I had a low-key evening last night, but we enjoyed it that way. We ordered sushi as carry-out from Wildfish, and along with some salad and roasted kabocha, we dined in the comfort of our own home. It was nice to watch the live music on television and enjoy our Christmas tree before it comes down in two days.
Welcome, weekend, welcome! I need some time to slow down, and catch up! « Continue »
Last night I taught my first health and wellness seminar!
The topic: Make Your Perfect Smoothie. I wanted to focus on how smoothies can be delicious, healthy and able to be modified for a variety of diets and preferences.
It’s 3:30 pm, and I’m working on the computer when Bob strolls into the kitchen and grabs some almonds. He walks out of the room, only to return about 5 minutes later. He says something about researching rims for the wheels on my car, and snacks on a few cherries that are sitting on the counter. We start discussing the pros and cons of having the old rims repaired versus buying new. Bob opens the container of pistachios and takes a handful. He leaves. I hear him typing for a minute on his computer. The next thing I know, he’s in the pantry reaching for tortilla chips, saying something about aluminum rims and how long they’re expected to last.
“What are you doing?” I ask.
“I’m hungry, but I don’t know what I want.”
Light-bulb idea! ”How about a smoothie?!?”
After making chia gel for the pictures I used the other day, I made a smoothie. It’s been 100° around here lately, so smoothies have been hitting the spot. Plus, we had some strawberries that were on their last leg. This was a perfect use for them! Here’s what I threw into the blender for a quick, refreshing snack:
Smoothies are one of my favorite go-to snacks, especially in the summertime. They are a quick, easy way to eat something healthy that tastes totally delicious.
By the time we made it back home after the Dirty Girl Mud Run on Saturday, I was hungry and felt dehydrated. So I grabbed a few ingredients to make a quick, high-protein smoothie. It turned out to be really tasty!
