smoothie sunday

Inspired by my dear friend Victoria, I welcomed my desire to increase my energy and vitality for life so I have challenged myself to be more committed to my most optimum health.  For the past year, I have watched a wonderful transformation in my friend by her dedication and passion to eating and drinking her way to good health. Yes, I eat healthy but after winter, I feel like I need to shed that winter coat for a leaner and lighter cloak for spring.

This morning I took our dog for our morning walk then came back home and created the most wonderful fruit smoothie after having a lovely glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon.  Took my walk and morning vitamins too.  As I walked, I breathed in and out and realized each of us deserve to find our best health and creative flow.  It all adds up to a smoothie Sunday.  You owe it to yourself to create peace and tranquility in your own sacred body every day, but Sunday seems like a perfect place to spend a smooth day.

Huge smoothie fans here! I always buy fruit on sale at the grocery store and toss them right into the freezer so they're smoothy-ready! How's that for a smooth-move! LOL

Love it! I agree winter blah are something to be shed....the sun is shining and I think a walk is in order. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hi- are you using a regular blender for your smoothies? Any recs? Do you know if the vitamix is worth the investment?

Today I had kale, frozen banana, almond butter, protein powder and almond milk. I have come to love my daily smoothies.

Hope your weekend was smooth sailing!!

For the fruit smoothies, I use a hand held immersion blender stick. I also use if for pureed vegetable soups.
For the raw green veggies juices, I am going to get a super dooper juicer this week.
The one I have is about the kick the bucket.

Nothing like a smoothie to start off the day! I made homemade granola this weekend for a healthy b'fast treat. I hope you had a great weekend! xoxo

My husband and daughter had granola, yogurt and berries. It was nice to see them enjoying the morning revving up their engines for a smooth soccer game.
Her team won and my husband was so happy since he is her Coach. Well there are 2 and they share the coaching.
Happy week ahead. Hope re-entry goes well.
