This week I joined the green smoothie challenge. It's pretty simple, really. Start each day with a green smoothie, which consists of greens, fruits and water. The first day I made one with kale and mango. It was incredible. The second day I got really ambitious and added twice the amount of kale. It tasted a lot like grass. So I added a fuji apple and it sweetened it just enough.
I love the natural boost of energy I get and drinking something so green just makes me feel good. I especially love that my 2-year-old can down one of these in about 10 seconds flat. Here's the first recipe I tried that is really yummy:
Green Kale & Mango Smoothie
1 cup of kale
1 cup water
Blend in your blender until smooth. Make a toast and enjoy!
My seedlings have sprouted and they want to get in the ground. This is the first time I've ever started seeds indoors and I'm very new to gardening. So I'm extremely excited to get my hands in the dirt. We've spent the last few weekends getting the shed, patio and screened porch ready for spring. The goal this weekend: tend to the garden!one small change for April.
I love how things come into our life at just the right time - seeing green - just in time for Earth Day.
