Sleepy Eyed School Morning Smoothie

Is anyone else finding it hard to get up and into the routine since school started? Smoothies are a great and efficient option for when you can barely butter the toast and the kids can barely pick it up and chew. Stick a straw into a tall glass of healthy sweet nutrients and the kids can keep their eyes closed while slurping it down!

My children very much approved this combination and I was happy to serve it to them at breakfast. Nutritious berries, refreshing pineapple, very light banana flavor, and the vanilla milk really makes this delightful.

Basic Guacamole

Basic Guacamole

Nothing like fresh, ripe avocados being mashed & turned into a zesty, cooling, filling, healthy condiment and dip. "Table side guacamole" is a trend at Mexican restaurants everywhere. I find guacamole to be one of those recipes which you can't really mess up and has so many tasty versions. I never really make it the [...]

Workout to Pool Smoothie

Summer is calling for lots of smoothies! I don't think I will ever get over how convenient they are as a snack as well as squeezing in so many servings of fruits and veggies. I whipped up this refreshing shake when I was pretty hungry. I had an intense workout, came home to rinse off, got [...]
