Smoothie love (infographic)

Hey Family!

Awhile back, I spoke about the love I have for smoothies, specifically green smoothies. I have one or two almost daily packed with spinach or kale, a banana, almond milk, and super foods like cacao, coconut oil, chia, flax and hemp seeds.

I usually supplement my healthy-ish meals (hey, sometimes you need a little cake!) with my smoothie and other times, I take it with me as I run errands or in between church services. It fills for a bit and keep me out of fast food land. This infographic, courtesy of, gives you a great idea on different types of smoothies and their effect on your body. Take a look and let me know if you have questions!


Goin’ green for April

Hey family,

A couple of posts back, I wrote about trying out green smoothies, from a website called A month later and I have to say—IT’S A HABIT!! I actually look forward to mixing up my frozen, nourishing treat which is basically spinach, banana or berry mix with almond milk. I even branched out and “upgraded” my smoothies by adding:

Almond, walnut or pecan “nut butter” (after buying some, I started making them myself! All you need are raw nuts, a little coconut oil, sea salt, a food processor and blend till smooth!)

Cacao powder

Flax, chia & hemp seeds


Mixed greens

Collard greens (not my fav)

Mustard Greens (not my fav)

Flax seeds

Coconut water

I do I need to rotate my greens a little more, but overall I am chuffed about getting in more fruit, veggies and protein, which is highly beneficial for everybody. So…..want to get in on the action?

While I am not affiliated with the company, it just so happens that is having a 30 day challenge starting next week. This will kick-start your smoothie-love and you’ll be hooked and can’t get free. Details are here.

If you are not adventurous, I recommend starting off with the recommendations from the site. This way, you’ll like the smoothie and want to continue drinking them. There is no financial obligation, no penalties, no obligation or anything. And, no, this is NOT the only thing you consume for 30 days! Feel free to eat what you typically do–you’ll notice over time that the cravings for excessive amounts of unhealthy food will dissipate, and you’ll start to make healthier food choices overall. Then you can have the cake or chips as a treat without wrecking your health! It’s a win-win situation!

Bottom line: This is a way to get more fresh produce, vitamins and minerals in your diet, Family.  We want to take good care of the temple God gave us while we are here, right? Try the green smoothies out and let me know how you like them!


God bless,
