It’s Smoothie Time ;)

I love a good smoothie, especially this time of year. When it's hot outside and I don't feel like eating a big meal, I know that drinking a smoothie is a great way for me to get a healthy dose of protein, fiber and fats while also reaping the nutritional benefits of fruits, veggies and greens.

Warm Up To Winter :)

Have you been feeling sluggish, weighed down or maybe even a little grumpy? If so, you are definitely not alone. I've been feeling that way too!
