Well I have been off the grid for awhile after the big move. I am excited to try to get some blogs going again regarding wellness, easy nutrition tips, and optimizing movement.
As you may know I am the mother of one. My son Rowyn is 12 years old ... going on 22! We are only a couple months form 13 and it is really beginning to show and I am loving every second of it!!!
I opened my own business to allow me not only to treat the way I want but also to mother the way I want. Having the freedom of my own schedule allows me to be more present for my family than I have been able to in the past.
I wanted to share one of my tried and true easy mom tips from my busier days away from home. Rowyn is what one might call a picky eater. Now, he has broadened his horizons as he is getting older, but green leafy veggies are still a struggle.
One thing I have done for years is homemade smoothies.
I simply take chopped frozen spinach, frozen strawberries, frozen marionberries, and frozen bananas (or whatever fruit you like), add some unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and a little organic stevia extract for added sweetness.
Blend this all together and pour into individual 8 oz cups. My blender makes 6 servings. I place these in the freezer and Rowyn drinks one every morning. This gets some green veggies, vitamins, and health fruits into his system. He loves it as it tastes great and is easily portable.
Throw in some organic protein powder for some added energy.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Hope to see you soon at the Ballard location. I think you will love it.
