Smoothie Queen

I feel like I keep posting about  fast and easy foods. I’m sorry if I seem repetitive or uncreative, but convenience seems to be the headline for my life lately!!! If it takes me five minutes or less to make it, then I’m all in!!!

I have been living on smoothies. I mean who doesn’t love them. They are a great way to incorporate some extra greens, protein, fruits, and vitamins! They also don’t give you an overly full/ uncomfortable feeling. Yup, smoothies are awesome.

Normally, I just take whatever frozen berries I have laying in my fridge, throw in some greens, protein powder, spirulina, and chia seeds and call it a day. Today I was feeling more creative and inspired by the fall weather.

Isn’t this color green gorgeous?! Usually green smoothies come out a muddy green/brown color, but looks so appealing to me 🙂 Wanna know what went into it?

This was so incredibly satisfying. I also was obsessed with the texture. It was so smooth and balanced. Try it out.. I dare you 🙂

Well, life continues to be absorbed by Big Fish. I suppose it’s not a bad way to spend my time 😉
