Case of Limes The sun is shinning, it's Friday and I'm in a damn good mood. So I'm going to share with you the most delicious smoothie recipe from delivery yesterday, it took me a couple rounds but man this might be my smoothie for the summer. Incognito Mojito* makes 2Ls Baby bok choy, three heads 2 sprigs fresh mint 2 limes, juiced 2-1/2 apples 2 cups water 12 ice cubes Blend smooth and enjoy! Cat and I are losing our minds over this one *this smoothie was declared the "Incognito Mojito" by a very exuberant and newly converted smoothie addict... who also happens to be my roomie and bestie.  

Lemon Sprizter I was gifted some awesome kitchen gadgets over the holidays, but this citrus spritzer from my mum is super cool. I haven't seen anything like it before and it works just as well as you would hope. I'm pretty excited to use it on my cut avocados to keep them from turning ugly. If you got any handy kitchen tools this year, please share we'd love to know what's out there! Check out the Lékué website for more of their innovative kitchen stuff.

photo cred Cat You sassy little fellows.  I think you are my favorite (don't tell my kids).  Possibly one of the most versatile veggies out there.  You can eat them raw, cooked, pickled AND you can eat their tops too.  Who'da thought?  I chuck 'em in a smoothie and add other purple things so the colour is mucho appealing (also see my recent obsession with purple). Last night, to ensure I didn't mindlessly hog down on Halloween candy, I made myself a smoothie before I went out trick or treating with my eldest. Let me tell you, that smoothie was nothing short of purple-fection. The Beet Knees 2 cups filtered water 2 packed cups org. beet greens 3 small org. carrots 1/2 small org. apple 1/2 cup org. red grapes 3/4 cup froz. org. blueberries 1/2 org. lime 2 tbsp Hemp hearts And by the way - it doesn't actually taste like beets, in case you were wondering.
