Thank-Full


We return thanks to our Mother, the Earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of her children.
~ an Iroquois Thanksgiving Prayer (adapted)

Green Smoothie Experience... Day One


It has been almost a year since I last posted here. Many incredible things have happened, maybe too many. I intend to share them with you as we go along, but right now I just want to focus on green smoothies. I have embarked on a new adventure, my very own green smoothie experience. Green Smoothies make me feel great. I feel the best when I consume mostly/only green smoothies. My goal right now is to do 30 days of exclusively green smoothies. We will see how it goes.

Here is the recipe for my current concoction:

1 c. frozen pineapple
1 c. frozen peaches
2 frozen bananas
3 huge leaves kale
1 T. raw, local honey
1 T. coconut oil
2 T. flax meal
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. sea salt
2 c. water

blend, blend, blend some more...

love and blessings all the time...
