    Sugar Rush!

    28 May

    Today I was having a major sugar craving so I went to my pantry!! Behold my lifesaver!!IMG_3292

    They are SO good!! There are about 5 ingredients in them! Just the way I like it!! :]] So let me explain them… they are whole grain (YAY!), they have 5 ingredients (YAY!!X2), and they are filled with chocolatey hazlenut goodness!!!(YAY!!!X3!!)    

    p.s. they are from Trader Joe’s!!    THANK YOU TRADER JOE’S!!

     

    Another thing I discovered a while ago at my local “Great Harvest” bakery was this magical cookie:

    DARN!! You can’t see the cookie very well. But anyways. It is an organic spelt chocolate chip walnut oatmeal cookie!! It is to die for!! It is so delicious!! And it was freshley baked THAT DAY!!! I usually get my favorite spelt bread at that bakery so I go there about once a week or so!  Check out their website:

    My 1st Post!!! :]]

    28 May

                       So today I was starving and I decided to do some smoothie experimenting!! You may not know, but I love making smoothies. They are fast, nutritional, and packed with the vitamins and antioxidants that your body needs everyday!! :]] 

    I went into the kitchen determined to spice up my smoothie! I went to the refrigerator and looked through the drawers and HA! There it was!! Broccoli! So here are the ingredients: p.s. I use all frozen fruit!! :]]

    • 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt (I use Nancy’s Organic Vanilla)
    • 1/2 cup (or 7) mango cubes 
    • 1/4 cup of blueberries
    •  1/4 cup+ 1/8 cup Raspberries
    • 1/2 orange (yes- the whole orange…minus the peel!)
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1/2 ripe banana
    • 1 cup chopped raw broccoli!!!
    • 1 1/2 tsp. ground flax seed
    • Ice 

    Julie’s Rating: 4/5 stars              

    *The reason why it was 4/5 stars was because the broccoli kind of threw me off from my usual berry smoothie. I couldn’t really notice the broccoli THAT much. I think just the physcological thought that it’s there. It was quite good though…I must say!! Now I am energized and ready to go on with my day!! Maybe I will do the nutritional info a little later!

    I was going to take a picture and post it but I drank it before I had the idea of starting this blog!! Hehe!!

    I hope you enjoy this and have a SUNNY day!! :]]  ..oh..and please comment me saying you have read this!! Even if you didn’t try it I want to see if anyone has read this!! :]]
