Non-Acai Bowl For When You Have a Summer Cold That Feels Like Death

Non-Acai Bowl For When You Have a Summer Cold That Feels Like Death

1/4 c. coconut milk
1/2 banana
2 whole strawberries
3/4 c kale/spinach mix
1/4 c frozen blueberries or cherries
1/2 c frozen mango
1/2 c frozen pineapple
(can also add protein powder, acai smoothie packet in lue of blueberries, more green things)

Blended in my new birthday Vitamix (variable 1 – 10, then high for 40ish seconds). Makes a very thick sorbet consistency – therefore may need to be pressed down and/or scrapped depending on the blender.

Topping (creativity a plus)
1/2 banana sliced
3 strawberries sliced
hand-full of blueberries
GFC Granola (any granola will due, my favorite is KIND brand)
Coconut shavings
Agave or Honey drizzle (optional, well, it’s all optional really)

Serve Immediately and hope your children stay distracted by the Teen Beach Movie playing on Netflix.

Weekend Workout Challenge

20120210-200429.jpg

I’m a disciplined person but even I struggle to workout on the weekends. If my husband is actually off work I want to hang out with him. Or I want to run errands. Or I want to just relax with my kids.
But working out is such a good thing. So let’s challenge each other to workout this weekend. But let’s open our minds up a bit. This weekend, workout at the park with your kids. Put down the iPhone. Pinterest and Facebook will still be there later. Play with your kids. Start a game of tag. Do the monkey bars (oh my gosh those are hard). Impress your kids with your awesome cherry drop. Do some box jumps onto the jungle jim steps. Other parents might think you are a bit funny, but chances are they will be jealous of how much fun you are having.
