Phewy....after a week of smoothies, I was running low yesterday...so I only got one smoothie in, instead of my 2-3...and let me just say, I COULD FEEL IT! 

I had a headache, and felt like since I couldn't have a smoothie I HAD to have COFFEE! So, my sweet daughter bought us mochas....and it did help my headache a lot...but I knew I really NEEDED my veggies! LOL....lol. Crazy talk! LOL

I got my kale, red chard, collard greens, spinach, tropical mixed fruit (pineapple, mango peaches and strawberries), strawberries, and blueberries...red leaf lettuce, oh, oh, and some 100% pure pumpkin...(LOTS OF VITAMIN A!)...and kiwis and bananas, and broccoli sprouts...and clover sprouts...oh goodness...it all makes me happy. :) 

My dinner/dessert smoothie was A WHOLE BUNCH of kale (the way the sell it in the store) and broccoli sprouts and pumpkin and avocado, and red chard, and kiwis and bananas and tropical mixed fruit and strawberries...and flax oil...yeah...I'm in smoothie heaven right now...and my HEADACHE is GONE now! I feel so good. 

We had an amazing dinner, as well...the boys went to a friends for a sleep over, and so it was big kids night at home...(oldest daughter and baby...baby went to bed...ahhhh, it was nice...and quiet.)...so we had rib eye steaks and I used my new wok for the first time...sauteed up some zucchini and yellow squash and baby bella mushrooms with freshly minced garlic in extra virgin olive oil...oh my goodness...and sprinkled fresh ground Mediterranean sea salt...it was oh so wonderful. <3 And the steaks, broiled to perfection.  I sipped on my smoothie and indulged in my tender juicy steak...and devoured my veggies...I felt like a princess. We all felt like princesses... ;) Even my hubby. :)

OH, I can't tell you how happy I am to have my veggies back in my cup! Happy sigh. I can't seem to stop telling everyone about them, either...! I keep thinking, "The way I talk about 'green smoothies' you'd think I own stock in them! LOL...yeah...no... ;) Oh well, I would, if I could...LOL. 

Anyhow...what's new with YOU!? Come on, talk to me. :) I love it! 

Be blessed, enjoy your weekend. :)
