Smoothie Talker

Cold and flu season is attacking my throat. So I have been fighting back with VITAMINS and a touch of healthy paranoia after watching Contagion. On top of fresh kale, carrot, apple and ginger juice, and 3 squirts of Zicam every three hours, I have added this tasty treat, which is my take on the Green Monster Smoothie:

Grab your blender or Magic Bullet (two thumbs up on this single serving product!) and mash everything together.

  • One Banana
  • Two handfuls of Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 cup of Greek Yogurt. Greek yogurt is super rich and full of 11g of protein. I like to use plain yogurt in this one because the fruit is naturally sweet (ps. like Dannon's Greek brand the best.)
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries and strawberries
  • 1/4 cup of milk

Blend until smooth and enjoy.

Hopefully my self prescribed concoctions will do the job!

Ps. I don't recommend Contagion. Being star studded doesn't mean much.

A Day to Remember

I am trying to get back in tune with my crafty side. She went into hiding after college ended. Life huh?

Well because of this great website called Pinterest my craftiness is coming back out.

For this project you need:
1. A basic sewing machine (a product every household needs.) Mine was a cheap Kenmore from Sears. (Suggested and appreciated from my cousin Sarah)
2. A set of large stamps (or stencils.)
3. Plaid Paint (Made in the USA)
4. One yard of tan burlap (On sale today!)
5. Pillow Stuffing
6. A date that rocked your world. The one on here is our wedding date.
