Green Smoothie Girl

        Last week I attended a free class by the Green Smoothie Girl, Robyn Openshaw.  I thought it was good info.  I'm already in the Green Smoothie habit, but she inspired me to try some different greens in my smoothie.  This week I added kale.  It's going to take some getting used to!  But today I threw a golden kiwi into my regular recipe and it was really good.
        I also purchased her children's book "The Adventures of Junk Food Dude".  It's a cute book to use to teach your kids about eating good real food.  Maybe there's a free Green Smoothie Girl class near you.  Click on the link then the "events" tab to find out.

       You could also win a free BlendTec Blender and some other fun things at her class. 
        Happy Blog Anniversary to me.  My first post on this blog was one year ago today!

Breakfast Quinoa

Instead of my usual fruit and steel cut oats for breakfast, I tried fruit and quinoa.  I'd made the quinoa for dinner the night before, so all I did was heat it up and add fruit, cinnamon and some local raw honey.   I'd definitely do it again next time I have leftover quinoa.  After I took the photo I decided it needed raisins.  Which made it just about perfect!
