Is anybody else as into dark sweet cherries as I am? Right now I’m on a cherry kick, maybe due to the ending of summer. (Btw I’m fully prepared for fall, even though fall hasn’t fully hit yet.) I’ve had this smoothie almost every morning for breakfast, and can’t imagine starting my day without it. I don’t know what it is about it that makes it so delicious, but it’s just the right combination of berries and sweetness from the cherries that it blends into a delicious smoothie!
Recently I’ve been feeling stuck in a rut, and once I get into a rut, it’s extremely hard for me to get out of one. This isn’t necessarily a rut where nothing is going right, but it’s more of an emotional rut. I’d often feel lethargic waking up, and generally unmotivated. So, while being completely uninspired and unmotivated I skyped with my ever-optimistic and beautiful friend from Germany. She is the one I always go to, when I have some sort of drama going on, just need to vent, or need someone to problem-solve with. She’s the absolute best listener, wise beyond her years, and gives the BEST advice!
It’s official: Summer is here! It’s time for sunshine, popsicles, pool parties, morning runs (to avoid the heat), travel, and going to the farmer’s market. My summer is jam packed with summer classes at the college, traveling to the mountainous North Carolina, Florida and even Europe! Add in a business conference, several business events and some coaching and you have an idea of what my summer looks like!
Strawberry and Banana- a match made in heaven! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been loving that mix of flavours. Strawberry Banana Julius was the only thing I’d order from Orange Julius (I still have no idea what the other ones taste like!). And before we stopped eating dairy, I used to mix strawberry flavoured yogurt with banana flavoured yogurt. But the childhood memories don’t stop there! Kefir, fruit salad, ice cream…you name it, I ate it! At least if strawberry banana was the flavour combination…
As Easter has come to an end, it is getting warmer and warmer, and staying that way. Summer is around the corner, and with summer come the fresh berries, tropical fruits, and many other delicious foods! To me, summer is all about eating fresh whole foods, and eating light. Kale salads, juices, smoothie bowls, and fruit salad are what my meals mainly consist of in the summer, and I love it!
