A family that smoothies together, groovies together! 

For the last week and a bit Angelina has decided that she wants to have smoothies to start off our day. Miss Thing is actually pretty particular, if it isn’t green she doesn’t usually drink it. No complaining here for me! This is a Moms dream come true! 

I’ve wrote about this before, but I like to say it over and over again. The more you teach your children about fruits and vegetables at an early age, the more likely they are to incorporate them and eat them on a daily basis as they get older.
Our morning routine is the same every day! She stands by my feet like clock work while I prep the fruits and veggies for our smoothie, knowing her turn is up next. Once everything is prepped and knives are put away, she gets to do the rest. Putting everything in the Vitamix, while doing a taste lick or bite on almost everything she puts in. She needs to ensure quality people!!!
We watch it blend together, we pour it together, we clean up our mess together and then the best part… We cuddle up on the sofa and enjoy our 1 litre green smoothie as we watch Sesame Street and dance, sing, clap and snap our fingers! How fun does that sound?!?!
We’re a team, as her body is getting stronger and leaner, my body is finally going back to the way I best remember it!
A family that smoothies together groovies together! Ohhhh hayyyyyy!!!!

Glorious Green Goodness

As mentioned on Instagram (username: paritaTIME) a couple days ago, I have found a delicious bright green shake that just makes you want to do the shimmy shake!

Now we all know my Iron levels are not up to par, so I’m always trying to look for alternatives to add extra iron to my diet.  So obviously Kale and Spinach are great go to’s for me.  And boy oh boy have I found a way to incorporate them together in a yummy and delicious way!  This isn’t new, apparently everyone is doing it when you search on YouTube but it is fab, so it makes sense.  I watched vmorales1984 (on YouTube) put here concoction together and she made it look so easy.  I’ve attached the link below for your viewing pleasure.  Now the last couple times I’ve made it, I’ve substituted apple juice, cranberry juice, pomegranate juice instead of the orange juice. But honestly anything goes.  I always add a tad bit of yogurt just for funzys!  And I prefer the dark, bruised up bananas cause they are sooo much sweeter, in my opinion.  Now look at all the health benefits that come out of this below and that’s not even all of them!!!! OHHH nelly, everything has been smooth operations since I’ve been hooked to this.  I have more energy, I feel great, my body feels light as a feather, regular is my middle name and ya’ll need to try this game.

Be kind to your bodies.

Love you all dearly!
