Breakfast in the Blender

Lately I have been making lots of smoothies....
I put them in the fridge or freezer and have them for a convenient breakfast or when I get home late from work or soccer.

Heres what I've been putting in them...

Oats... put the in the blender first, blend until powdery
Greek Yogurt, just a tablespoon or two (can be frozen in ice cube trays!)
Frozen blueberries
Frozen Strawberries
A big handful of fresh, rinsed spinach
A ripe banana 
Orange Peach Mango juice with plant sterols 

-the oats and spinach blend up so good you don't even notice them but Hello nutrition!!

Fun fact... people who blend their smoothies for longer time - think 2-4 minutes - feel fuller for longer!

Healthy is the New Skinny


This video is the message behind what is probably my new favorite website...

Its about helping girls and women accept their bodies
to change the perception that skinny is better, skinny is beautiful
and to help everyone realize that healthy is beautiful
being healthy, happy, and confident it what we need to strive for.

Please watch the video, share it with your little girl, your teen-age daughters
someone you know who is struggling with their body image.

Being skinny doesn't equal being healthy
and not falling into the fashion industry's narrow definition of beauty doesn't make you ugly or undesirable.

Women everyone need to come together and teach each other, friends and children that it is our health... emotion, physical, social, spiritual health that really matters. 
Not the number on the scale.

I hope to help people to learn to live a more healthy, active, and happy life.
Every body is loved and celebrated here
Every step you take to being more healthy is a step in the right direction.
