Now that I’m back from china – (update on granny stripe blanket coming soon!) I’ve been trying to get back in the groove of eating regular food. However, I’ve been looking for a twist on the everyday things that I have been finding myself gravitating towards. I had a chance to finally grocery shop last night and the majority of my $100 bill was produce! I’m ready for healthy food again!
I started this morning with a delicious new smoothie!
I used about 2 cups of baby spinach, handful of frozen peaches, two handfuls of purple grapes, and a frozen banana. I added 1 cup of chilled water, and put it in the vitamix. SO GOOD! It made plenty too, so I was able to share (although I could have drank the whole thing by myself easily!!)
Its like the plague has hit our home. First, pink eye struck. Then a bad cold I’ve been fighting for over a week. Then 103 degree fevers and a trip to ER for milo…. Now my husband is sick. Its been a LOOOONG week. and my cold is still lingering!
I made up this smoothie to help us get some vitamin c in our bodies first thing in the morning. It may not actually “fight” a cold – but I wanted something nourishing and fresh in our bodies to start the day since we haven’t been eating much real food otherwise. It definitely tastes good!
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 handful spinach/and or kale
Squirt of honey
Mix it in a blender and drink away!
Not a very compelling post tonight…things were hectic over here trying to get our house back together after being painted (updates soon!) and trying to finish editing last week’s wedding photos before this week’s wedding. EEK!
Anyway, I managed to throw this quick lassi together for dessert, after seeing it today on foodgawker.
1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup soy yogurt (i used plain)
squirt of agave
4-5 mint leaves
Throw it all in the vitamix or blender and mix it up. Pour in a glass and enjoy!
This super delicious smoothie was inspired by the house-made sorbet whole foods has sometimes at the ice cream bar….That and I had four rings of pineapple left, and one sad sprig of basil. I threw that in the vitamix along with a kiwi, handful of grapes, three big pieces of kale, ice cubes and a little water….SUCCESS!
