Saturday Smoothies: new weekly feature

Are you a smoothie lover who makes the same 4 or 5 smoothies over and over again? I have started a new feature to share my favorite smoothy recipes. Smoothies are an integral part of the Eat to Live food program. You can pack a lot of nutritional goodness in one tall glass. Check in on Saturday mornings for a new smoothie inspiration every weekend.

Back-to-School Bonus Breakfast Smoothie

Oh Puh-leeease. You have to try these smoothies for your kids. Or for yourself. The Berry Mango Breakfast Smoothie has everything a healthy breakfast has in it: protein, whole grain carbs, calcium, lots of fruits (with all the phytonutrients that go along with fruits) and of course, tons of flavor. It’s satisfying and will last your kids until lunchtime or morning snack time. Try it!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie

Want a super healthy, kid-friendly smoothie recipe that you can serve your kids for breakfast, lunch, snack or even a dessert? This Peanut Butter Chocolate non-dairy smoothie tastes like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, only better! I made this extra smoothie this week especially for Stephanie and her daughter, Kristina, at her request. I love that she is careful about her child’s nutrition, and remembers how delicious a healthy meal can be! You rock, Stephanie!

Homestyle Art Fun: Ink Painted Tiles

First full day of homestyle art and summer fun at the Broadway Bungalow. Today we made the coolest painted tiles using alcohol inks and straws (Adia named our technique Strawmania.) We also made snacks, sun tea and friendship bracelets, watched the Lorax and built a campfire. Check out Ema and Adia’s gorgeous triptych tiles.

Healthy Green Smoothie

It’s getting close to that time of year when we do a fruit fast for both health and spiritual reasons. We’re not actually fasting on just fruit this year, but I have been wanting to add more fruit to our daily diets, and make healthier breakfasts and lunches. So, I invented my own dairy-free green smoothie for lunch today.
