Strawberry Peach Protein Smoothie

Does the title of this post sound familiar to you?  I kind of hope so because that means you’re following me on my blog.  However, in case you don’t remember, I made a delicious Peaches & Cream Smoothie last summer when Colorado Peaches were in season.  I have such good news for you! It’s not quite Colorado peach season but you’re definitely in for a real TREAT!

My Golden Salad Dressing

It’s no secret, I love my salads.  I love kale, arugula, spinach, mixed greens…you name it.  In fact, my brother-in-law recently said I was going to turn into a leave of kale since he witnessed me front and center during our re-model making my green smoothies sometimes twice daily during when I was without my kitchen.  It’s a known fact, I love vegetables of every color and texture, and I love creating the perfect little combo bite with each one of them.  I aim for 6 fistfuls of them a day.  

Celebrating New Years in Chicago

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

New Years Fun in Gurnee Illinois with my nieces!

What was your New Years like?  I am pleased to say mine was everything I had hoped for.  I did lots of my favorite things like run, workout, enjoy good food, and most importantly, spend time with family.  My hubby, mom and I packed up my car, headed out on the highway about noon on Friday December 3oth, and almost 7 1/2 hours later we arrived in Gurnee, Illinois.  We were tired, hungry but definitely excited!
