I’m fairly certain that my breakfast (green) smoothie saves my life everyday. As most of you know, I was visiting my daughter in South Korea for (give or take) 12 days and in that time; I didn’t make the proper arrangements to prepare my morning drink. I didn’t fully feel the effects until a couple of days before I left and I have been paying for it since I arrived home. I feel like I’ve literally been hit by a double-decker bus and I barely have enough oomph to open up a dark chocolate bar. I’m not worried because I know as soon as I’m back on the “smoothie”; I’ll be bursting with energy again.
My friend Dee whom I’ve known forever and is the reason, I have to spell my name “De” instead of “Dee” wrote me yesterday asking me how I prepare my smoothies for the week. Below is my response…
On Sunday, we make breakfast smoothies for Monday through Friday. We store Monday and Tuesdays in the fridge and Wednesday through Friday in the freezer. You have to get the freezer-stored smoothies out the evening before and of course, shake well.
We use these containers…
If you decide you want to start drinking breakfast smoothies, the links below will help you get started. It will honestly be the best decision you ever make. Dramatic? I think not. :)
Okay, it’s almost 8:00 am here in England, which means it’s time to drink my breakfast. Catch you later!
As I stated on my face-book page: Mr. Manatee and I discussing the importance of a plant-based diet. He resides in an aquarium in Seoul Korea.
Good morning everyone! Just a quick note to inform you that I’m leaving for a 12 day trip to South Korea to visit my daughter (she teaches English there). I won’t be posting during this time unless it’s a quick picture and/or if I come across something I have to share with you. Wish me luck on the 18-hour flight!
*Today, because I’m in vacation mode, I’m sharing some of my favorite, most informational and inspirational charts/pictures.
The chart below is from “Food Matters” and it’s a quick guide to know which vegetables and fruit to buy organic.
Have you ever wondered how many chemicals you put on your body everyday?
At one time in my life, I thought weight training would make me look bulky but thankfully, I’ve learned otherwise.
