The Goddess Green Smoothie And Resolutions

It’s resolution time. I have made different resolutions many times. Some I have completed, some not so much. I always like to make one or two and set new goals for the new year. One I am making this year is to become more organized. I will set some goals with dates to get my house organized. Also, I want to start a bigger garden this year so I am going to begin getting the outside garden area prepped for spring planting. I love fresh herbs and I always have some type of herbs growing because I love to use them in cooking and in my smoothies. Right now I have a whole bunch of parsley thriving in my yard, so I put a little in my latest concoction below. Also, I will be bringing you recipes for smoothies and more 🙂 Happy New Year!

This is my new green smoothie. It has anti aging benefits, detoxifying benefits, slim down benefits etc. It is full of goodness. I call it “The Goddess” green smoothie. The husband says it is the best green smoothie I have made yet. Green smoothies are so easy to make and for me it is a great way to get in extra greens, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants all in a low-calorie sweet treat. I look forward to it daily. To make, just combine to handfuls of organic spinach, 1 organic apple, 1 handful of parsley (I picked from my garden/you can see it in there) 2 frozen ripe bananas, a few chunks of pineapple, and enough spring water to your liking. Blend in a powerful blender. I use a Ninja. It blends and chops to a great smoothie consistency in seconds. Pour in a glass and enjoy the healthy benefits.

Check out this great post about fresh basil. This blogger has great ideas. I am doing this asap:)

A HEALTHY LIFE FOR ME

I planted two beds of basil this year.  Why?  A lapse in judgement.  I always think I could use more basil while I am planting the seeds, and I am quite happy with it in the early stages of its growth, but then it starts sending up flower heads. Which means it’s coming to it’s end.  I fight the brave fight by pinching away, but the basil always wins.  I end up shrugging off my loss and say that its all good because my bees spend their days taking dips in the basil flower heads.  Which is exactly where my basil is right now, feeding my bees.  So, if your like me and trying to use up as much basil as you can while you still have it, I dedicate this recipe to you! 🙂

This is a great little oil to have on hand to drizzle on fish, tomatoes…
