recently i have taken to having a green smoothie for breakfast and that is it. i used to think i needed something solid too but i am experimenting with what my needs for food really are at this point in my life and finding a giant greenie holds me nicely until lunch. (and of course my coffee!)
1 c. chopped chard
1 c. baby arugula
1/2 a cucumber chopped
1 stick of celery chopped
combine these with about a cup of water in the blender and blend away.
1/2 c. frozen peas
1/4 c. frozen blueberries
1/2 c. frozen strawberries
a few tablespoons of ground flax seed
another few oz of water
blend well…i let it buzz along for a few minutes it seems.
later in the morning our newly found and much appreciated babysitter arrived to watch the bean and pea while i treated myself to a haircut. when i got home beanie offered to take a picture of it:
it’s hard for me to put that photo up without obsessing about if i look ok in it and because it is so hard i am doing it! i did crop the outlet out of the image but other than that it is the bean’s photo. go beanie bop.
speaking of the beanie bop. he is 4. i could wax poetic about the last four years, oh yes i could, but for now i’ll just share a few photo’s of the cake we ate with him the other day to celebrate. (thanks for the cake gramps!)
and those are some recent changes around here.
p.s. i am feeling kind of inspired by this project. fun? awesome? crazy? time-suck? hmmmmmmmmmm.
