Beet Apple Ginger Juice
Must-Have Energizing Juices for a Productive Morning

My Must-Have Energizing Juices for a Productive, Healthy and Loving Morning

I have been craving juices like mad the past week and filled my body with gorgeous beets, apples, celery, parsley, lemon, ginger and carrots. I have always listened to my body when she speaks to me. When she wants a certain something or even requests it in my dreams. Last week I dreamed of drinking juices and bathing in lavender.
.
I woke up and made it a point to grant the requests from my soul and, in return, she has gifted me with the most amazing amount of energy, beautiful uninterrupted sleep, and an all-around better mood. I am so thankful. Don’t forget to listen. To perk up your senses to what your body is telling you.

She never lies.

Vegan Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

Welcome back to the blog, Mamas! We have been having such crazy weather lately and it has turned us all a bit cranky.

Does gloomy weather do this to everyone or is it just us??

In order to combat the seasonal blues (and by blues I mean non-stop grey and rainy), we make the most out of each day!

Our favorite rainy day activities are devouring fun smoothie bowls like this one, playing in the rain, and non-stop cuddling. Partaking in these three activities in one day makes it so much better!

This smoothie bowl has turned every single frown upside down. Read more

Vegan Raspberry Morning Smoothie

Nothing like stealing some raspberries off of Mommy’s epic vegan raspberry morning smoothie! 

 
There are days where I am just not in the mood to cook breakfast even if it is only 5 minutes of work. I just want to fill up on beautiful and delicious fruits until my heart and belly are content.
 

Turn a “regular smoothie” into an “epic smoothie”

Vegan Raspberry Morning Smoothie

A regular smoothie will never fill me up the way a cooked breakfast will, but there is a trick to turn a “regular smoothie” into an “epic smoothie”. 

 

It’s all about the add-ins. When I know that the smoothie is my main source of energy for the morning, I load that beauty up with pretty much all the goodies that I can think of.

 

Here are a few examples that you can use:

  • Almond butter (about 1 tbsp)
  • Hemp seeds/chia seeds/flax meal (anywhere between 1 tsp to 1 tbsp)
  • Spirulina / Moringa / Ginger
  • Various lovely greens like cucumbers, kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, etc.

Notes

Every Sunday I decide on which smoothie our family will be enjoying for the week and create 7 smoothie bags filled with the fruits and veggies that will be blended. For this week I simply had 1 banana, 1 handful of pineapple and 1 handful of raspberries in each bag.
You can easily throw in a handful of greens as well but we were really feeling some bright colors this week due to the gloomy weather we have been having. 💓
Once the morning arrives, simply toss the frozen fruits/veggies into the blender with your plant milk and add-ins and blend! This saves a ton of time and avoids extra dishes.
