This day has been awesome. I feel like I’ve finally lowered my shoulders for the first time in weeks. I woke up right before 6 am and reviewed my school notes before I wrote an exam from 9 am to 1 pm. After my exam I walked home feeling such relief and when I got home I actually watched a movie while drinking coffee. I feel like I haven’t done something as relaxing as that in forever and I’m really looking forward going to bed knowing I don’t have to wake up feeling stressed and pressured.
The rest of my day I spent with my girl. She is such a little happy face and we had a blast on our walk back home from town looking at every single stone, trash, window, door, door step, you name it! Exploring the world through her eyes is a great wakeup call and reminds me to cherish every moment and the most simple things.
When we got back home we ate dinner and for dessert both of us enjoyed our favorite thing, green smoothies. Both of us love smoothies and it’s a genius way to get her to eat enough veggies and fruits. There is one extremely important ingredient though, the straw. I think I could get her to drink almost anything as long as she gets to drink it with a straw. Today she drank not only her own but half of mine as well ;).
I usually mix smoothies using anything I have at home but if Greta drinks it I stay away from spinach and lettuce because of nitrates.
This smoothie above consists of 1/2 avocado, 1 banana, 1/2 lemon, 1 kiwi, cold water and ice cubes. Mix everything together until smooth and enjoy!
