Feel The Burn


Good morning!

Ok, I have to admit- Eric and I watched The (Superbowl) Office episode again last night!!! Weeeeeeee. It is seriously funnier the second time around because you anticipate all the funny parts. I swear laughter is the best stress release…I slept like a baby!

Thank you for all of your suggestions about adding frozen fruit to smoothies. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before *Scratches head*.

I had some frozen berries in the freezer that were pretty old. Ok, I won’t lie. They are a good two years old and covered in freezer burn. LOL!!!!! So gross I know. But I thought what the hell. I’m sure every last nutrient has died in the berries long ago, but I figured it was better than ice. Heck, maybe they will give my smoothie a nice aged flavour? ;)


The loot:

  • 2 leaves organic kale
  • 1 Tbsp flax
  • 1 ripened banana (medium)
  • 1 Cup Original Almond Breeze
  • 1 small handful frozen berries

Just chillin:



After my smoothie, I brought out the other half of my prize loot!


The lo down:

  • 160 kcals
  • 4g fibre
  • 3 g protein
  • 8 g fat

It is vegan and gluten free! Sweet! :)


Taste test?

  • I liked this bar but it wasn’t my favourite of flavour combinations. I guess I am not a huge tropical nut kinda girl. It was still good though and I would probably try the other flavours!
  • I love the short ingredient list: organic dates, cashews, apples, bananas, pineapple, coconut, sea salt.

Thanks Melissa!!! :D

Keep those awesome Valentine’s Day entries coming in!!

I was just at whole foods yesterday and was wondering about those Think bars. Good to know that the tropical nut isn’t the best. Maybe I’ll grab another flavor next time I see them.

You only have 2 more days of work! I am very envious!!

i like putting in the mixed berries, but a blueberry smoothie sounds great. your smoothie has such a beautiful color (that’s always one of my favorite parts about smoothie making).
you always put up the loveliest pictures and quotes, and they always make me smile, so thank you!

Berries are a wonderful addition to your smoothie. Eating berries every day is good for aging and memory =)
