wiaw serve up an extra cup button

Happy WIAW!!  Monday I was reunited with my old friend, Mr. Jucier, we used to be the best of friends and then Mr. Blender took its place. Hey, it’s much easier to clean Mr. Blender.  Monday I used both of them, I juiced a golden beet root and tops, swiss chard and carrots. I used this juice as the base for blending more swiss chard, spinach, bananas and two scoops of organic hemp protein in Mr. Blender for a delicious smoothie. Talk about nutrient dense, this was a power packed smoothie.


I put my two favorite fruits together with a squeeze of lemon for a mid-morning snack. Blackberries and Mango.  Yummeeeee!


I had leftover Kale Avocado salad I purchased from Whole Foods on Sunday, to give the salad more of a nutritional and tasty punch, I added chopped tomatoes, sautéed tofu and vegan cheese and that was my lunch.


Dinner was scrambled egg whites topped with sautéed kale, spinach, baby bella mushrooms and vegan cheese.  OH SO GOOD!!


Thanks Jenn for this awesome food sharing party.  Check it out over at Peas and Crayons.

Join the challenge this month and add an extra cup of veggies to your day.

Stop the Spinning

Sometimes I feel like I’m on a spinning wheel that just won’t stop.  Day-to-day activities between work and home keeps the wheel spinning, I needed  to stop the spinning, get off and do something to relax and recharge.  That something for me was gardening.

So off to Callaway’s Nursery I went, where I picked up some veggies I wanted to plant.  With the weather cooling of a bit, this is the best time to plant leaf veggies.

Back at home I turned on some relaxing music and started planting, it’s nice to know that in a few short weeks I will be preparing  these veggies in my kitchen.

Swiss Chard

Pak Choy

Radicchio Chioggia Red Lettuce

I planted a herb garden earlier in the summer, and  look at how it has grown. There’s something wonderful about eating food from your own garden.

I challenge you to stop your wheel, get off, and do something that brings you joy.  Taking the time to stop, relax, and recharge.  It will make us all better moms, dads, sisters, brothers, husbands, wives, employees, and  just better people!

Good for the Mind, Body and Soul!!
