    Fabric And Food – Healthy Smoothie While In The Circus

    Fabric – Duralee – Chinese Acrobats – 21022-139 Summer

    It’s been a real circus around here lately.

    Catching up and keeping up with clients after I’ve been away is my priority.

    In between, I’ve been working on a few posts about my amazing time at Design Bloggers Conference.

    As always, I took lots of pictures to share with you.

    I have so much to share, I can’t get the words out quick enough.

    I do rather feel like one of these Chinese acrobats juggling many things.

    It’s a coincidence this Duralee fabric colorway is called Summer, something we New Englanders are all dreaming of.

    One thing I haven’t managed to do is get myself to the grocery store.

    Don’t get me wrong, I do still have food in my house, just not my fresh preferred foods.

    I’ve run out of fresh organic baby spinach for my smoothies so I had to add carrots instead.

    I am always amazed at the beautiful colors that come out of my Ninja blending.

    Pineapple Carrot Smoothie

    • 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
    • 2 chopped carrots – I’m still using the ones from Cournoyer Farm in Paxton, MA – They keep fresh in the refrig.
    • 1 scoop organic whey protein – Jarrows from Amazon
    • 1 tsp chia seeds – from Trader Joe’s
    • 1 tablet calcium with D – I have a hard time swallowing this gigantic pill so it gets ground up in my smoothie.

    Blend all of those together in the Ninja cup.

    Then add in –

    • 1/3 cup frozen pineapple tidbits – from Trader Joe’s

    Blend until it’s smooth and creamy.

    Smoothie blending is a quick and nutritious alternative to breakfast.

    This should hold me over until I finish writing my design Bloggers Conference recap.
