Red, White, & Blue Smoothie

Image

My Memorial Day mornings smoothie.

I will be working on this day of showing the men and women who have given their lives in active military service to protect our safety and freedom. So to be productive, it is probably best I don’t honor them with a beer or glass of wine. Instead, I decided to show my gratefulness to live in a country where we have freedom and possibility, by mixing up this delicious Red, White, and Blue green Smoothie in my blender.

This serves 2. Cut recipe in half to serve 1.

2 cups fresh Kale or spinach
2 cups coconut milk (or which ever milk you prefer. Organic, Almond, Rice…)
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup strawberries
maybe a few blackberries (I had I few that I didn’t want to go to waste)
1 medium banana
1 tbsp chia seeds

No matter how you are celebrating today, I would love to know in the comments below.

P.S. Try not to make me too jealous. :)) LOL

Five Posts to Write Right Now

Great ideas.

The Daily Post

Mired in bloggers’ block? Pshaw — we’ll give you a push! Here are five posts you can publish right now, no matter what topics you usually blog about.

1. The last thing that made you mad.

There are two great things about addressing issues that make you angry: first, the posts tend to be fun to write (not to mention cathartic). Second, the internet loves a good rant.

Think about the last thing that really made your blood boil, and take it from there. You can write about why it was so upsetting, explain how you found a solution, propose changes to keep it from happening again, or freeze-frame your emotions in verse.

(If you’re worried about letting it all hang out, check out our tips for writing rants without sounding like a big jerk.)

2. Your typical childhood lunch.

No really; stay with me.

The Best Oatmeal I’ve Ever Had

Image

If I knew this was so easy and tasty, I would have been doing this years ago. I am not kidding this tastes way better than the packaged stuff. It has the right amount of pleasant sweetness. Unlike the packaged oatmeal it does not leave a heavy laden coat of sugar that sticks to your tongue. And the fresh ingredients are filling, satisfying and energizing.

I took:

  • 1/4 cup of Organic Rolled Oats, Plain
  • 1 Tablespoon Raw Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
  • A heavy Tablespoon of Walnuts
  • A third of a Granny Smith Apple

I, of course placed the oatmeal in the bowl, sprinkled in the chia seeds. Then I chopped up the walnuts and the apple and added them to the bowl. Poured in about 3/4 cups of water and heated it in the microwave for a minute and a half. After it was cooked I drizzled the honey on top.

These are my favorite ingredients for this, but you can play around with other fine foods, like berries, pecans, etc., would do fine. Maybe you like flaxseed or sunflower seeds better. Sweeteners, like coconut sugar, or agave nectar would also be a nice touch. And you can play around with the measurements.

Please comment below and tell me what do you think you would put in your oatmeal creation?
