My hubby is addicted it açaí bowls. Every Friday he takes our son to a local cafe and they share one together! Although I have been putting açaí packets in my smoothies for a while now, until we went to Hawaii I had never actually had an açaí bowl! (I loved it obviously!) They were so fresh and delicious, the perfect way to start our day! I knew I wanted to start making them at home because they are much more cost effective this way, and now we can have them whenever we want! I created a recipe for easy loaded açaí bowls that anyone can do right in their own kitchen!
Monday comes at me hard every week no matter how prepared I think I am for it on Sundays! I am always a little slow to get going on Monday, but once I adjust I do love the idea of a fresh start to any week. No matter what you ate over the weekend, or how unorganized you were the week before, Monday is a new day and a new chance to do it better! I love hitting the restart button on Mondays and that usually means I am craving my easy and delicious everyday green smoothie!
Happy Monday guys! How was your Easter weekend? I hope it was filled with chocolate, friends, family, and maybe a little rest too! We had a great weekend spent playing outside in the sprinkler, hunting for eggs, and stuffing our bellies full of BBQ. I have however been battling a cold, and while it hasn't made me feel horrible, it has got me sneezing and my nose running like crazy. Whenever I feel my body starting to get sick or worn down I always try and rev up my smoothie intake because I can cram a ton of good ingredients into one drink! My citrus immune boosting smoothie is just the kind of drink that I will be sipping on all week long and I figured you might need it too
Last week we went to South Carolina and visited Charleston and Folly Beach. We needed a few days to get away just the two of us, for some rest and relaxation! We did just that, including eating our way through both towns. By the end of the week we realized that vegetables took a vacation from our lives as well...oops. This week my body has been craving all things good for me after eating heavier meals while on vacation. I always feel like a detox is in order after vacation. You don't eat enough veggies, drink enough water, or exercise as much as you should even if you went with good intentions. My kale and cantaloupe smoothie is just the drink to help feed my body the nutrients that it missed out on last week! It's hydrating, full of vitamins, and really delicious!
Smoothies are a great way to sneak good for you ingredients into one yummy drink. You won't even realize you are drinking something that is really benefiting your body because you will love how it tastes. The key is to balance sweet fruit with your veggies and to make sure you aren't adding unnecessary sugar outside of your fruit!
