January brings all things healthy and virtuous to the forefront – so we are doing our part with three hormone balancing smoothies to kick off the new year.
It seems we are programmed to think about a healthy start to the new year – goals and or resolutions are made and promises to eat more greens and add healthy new items to our diets get added to our “to-do” list.
In that vein, as we age we are also fighting our hormones and dealing with the onset of menopause in addition to dealing with our teens fighting their own hormonal battles 🙂
Ladies (and gents too!) I have a problem. It’s time to admit it. When summer comes, I become obsessed with the bounty of fresh fruits and veggies available both at the grocery store and Farmer’s Markets throughout the city. This problem led to our healthy and quick Strawberry Blender Muffins.
Now, the obsession itself is not really a problem – fruits and veg? How can that be a bad thing? BUT, the problem really rears its ugly head when I am somehow compelled to purchase cases of said veggie or fruit, just because I am SO (in the moment) motivated and inspired by the sheer freshness of it all. I imagine that our family will be able to ingest all this fresh fruit prior to it going bad, or that I am going to can, freeze, or create anything and everything to use up my purchase.
