Smoothie Sunday: Nectarine NIGHTMARE!

Happy Sunday! Because today is a fresh start to a fresh new week, I’d like to share with you recipes for my favorite meal: fresh smoothies. Smoothies are amazing meals that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a midday snack that will keep you full for hours.

You can literally put ANYTHING in a smoothie! That’s what’s so amazing about them: you can personalize smoothies with all of your favorite fruits and vegetables!

For all of my smoothie recipes, it’s ALWAYS optional to add lettuce, spinach, kale, dandelion greens, arugula, parsley, and any other healthy vegetables that you desire. Also, for a milkshake-like thicker smoothie, add half of an avocado or a banana.

Today’s recipe is called the Nectarine Nightmare, but don’t worry, it’s only called that because tomorrow is Halloween! It’s actually a very pretty and delicious smoothie (or is it?). Trick or treat? Only one way to find out! Here’s the spooktacular recipe…

Kiwis help to balance your emotions and increase stability.

What to Buy Instead of Candy This Halloween

If you’re anything like me, then you’re not too thrilled about giving out candy on Halloween. If you won’t eat candy because of its added sugar, artificial colors, and carcinogens (toxins that cause cancer), then why would you want to give it to innocent children?

Now I know, everyone else is doing it, so what does it matter? However, everyone can make a difference, not matter how big or small. Your no-candy-on-Halloween trend will catch on if you know what hot commodities to give out instead.

If you want to make a health statement this Halloween, consider giving out these fun goodies this Halloween!

Top 10 Goals: Green Thumb Goal

I’ve never been a Green Thumb. Most of the plants or flowers that I’ve ever had have died quickly because of some reason unknown to me. The point is, I’m no gardener, and I realize that.

Because I realize that this is a struggle of mine, I want to improve it! Since I eat only organic fruits and vegetables, I think that I would benefit a lot from growing my own food. I’d save money, and I’d guarantee that my fruits and vegetables would be coming from a good place!

Also, I believe that fresh is ALWAYS better. My friend’s grandparents own a farm, so sometimes she brings me fresh carrots to eat, and let me tell you, they’re 100 times better than any store-bought carrots I’ve ever had.
