Green Smoothie

When IIN posted a link of summer smoothies I couldn't wait to try some! First on my list was Beauty That Moves-Green Smoothie.

If you are looking for a refreshing drink or something a little sweeter this smoothie is perfect! (Its great for kids too! They will never taste the Kale)

Plus the added hemp seeds are a great way to increase protein and did you know hemp seeds contain all 10 essential amino acids?

(Sorry for my walls, the backsplash is coming today!)

Recipe (serves 1)
3 kale leaves (destemmed and washed)
1 cup of frozen fruit (I used pineapple, mango and strawberries)
1 frozen banana
1 TB hemp seeds
1 1/4 cup of almond milk
1/2 cup of H2O
1/2 tsp honey or maple syrup to taste

If you haven't tried drinking from a glass straw, you must! Also these glass jars I picked up from Michael's for $1 are perfect for any smoothie or layered salad you pack for lunch.

Our pets are family!

Our two dogs (Bella- 5lb yorkie & Somer- 70lb chocolate lab) are part of our family, so we make sure they live the same nontoxic lifestyle as we do. They enjoy premium organic pet food Orijen that contains fresh regional ingredients and live a healthy active lifestyle.

That being said a friend of mine recently moved Southlake, Texas and opened an Organic Pet Spa. (I am so proud of her but definitely wish she still lived in MD still so we could take advantage of her services).

Southlake Crossing Pet Spa uses all natural and organic products with zero chemicals or preservatives. I think this is fantastic! Many times we are careful with the products we put on/in our bodies but forget about some of the "family" members that fill our hearts each and every day.

If you live in Texas or know someone who does make sure to check out this Pet Spa for all your furry friends.
