Apple Juliet


any thanks to all of you who left kinds words of encouragement and support after my last post. Your thoughts and prayers mean the world to me, and I am so thankful to be a part of such a caring community of people.

I woke up this morning with a terrible headache.

My best remedy was a green chocolate smoothie with 1 cup almond breeze, 2 packs amazing grass, 1 scoop maca/ hemp/ cacao powder, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 t dark chocolate PB.

I spent the day outside leading a group of wild 13 and 14 year olds around for track and field.

Lunch was a tuna sandwich and an orange.

Dinner this evening was a hamburger with some roasted potatoes and onions with a bit of feta cheese:

I still had a headache this evening, so I rested on the couch and watched American Idol. I am so sad that Simon is leaving - I love him :-)

I also made a beautiful drink that is reminiscent of an "Orange Julius". I have named it the Apple Juliet:

Apple Juliet

1/2 cup water
1 apple
2 apricots
3 strawberries
4 icecubes
10 drops of Vanilla Liquid Stevia (thanks to NuNaturals for sending me this)

Remove stems and core of fruit (leave skin on). Blend in the VitaMix or other blender.

It was smooth, sweet, and delicious! I will definitely make this again!

Do you watch American Idol? Who is your favourite judge?
Do you ever go to Orange Julius? What do you order?

I like anything tropical, with coconut and pineapple.

Haha - Apple Juliet. Love it! I had no idea that Simon was leaving the show. I haven't watched it since Ruben beat clay Aiken. It's been awhile.

I used to love Orange Julius. I haven't seen one in forever though. My brother and I used to throw such fits for them.

I have never watched AI willingly. When I have watched it is when I'm at my parents and they have it on :-(

Yummy, that apple juliet looks beautiful!

I am not a huge fan of American Idol (or simon) But I do tune in occasionally! I don't think the show will be the same without him.
