This is me and my Mum Linda, she's the smoothie Queen of Windsor. Linda has been blending her greens for two years now and never missed a day. This babe makes smoothies for her neighbours, coworkers and recently even had her Smoothies 101 notes published on MagnaWellness.ca and I couldn't be more proud. If you need a smoothie refresher, or have been feeling like you want to clean it up a bit my Mum's article is a great place to start. Check it out here and if you're an old blending pro and want some new inspiration we've tried lots of smoothie combos and these are some of our faves. So easy, so good! Enjoy.

  We love our brothers here at the Goods and my one and only bro turned 30 yesterday, thank the gods* the kid is finally catching up. I'm blessed to have grown up along side such an amazing person. Luc never gives up and he never settles. He has mastered the art of finding the positive in every situation. He's as stubborn as a terrier but will give you the shirt off his back... and lord knows my friends would love to see him pull that shirt off his back... ugh. His drive and work ethic is an inspiration and I expect big things from this guy in the years to come. Actually I was rallying this weekend for him to run for mayor of Windsor... watch it Francis. Basically Lucas I want to thank you for being the best and while I have been told my entire life that I have the best brother I don't tell you enough that I have the best brother. Thank you for everything and especially thank you for being there for me always. Oh and thanks for introducing me to this gem, I have it on repeat just like you used to! Happy Birthday little brother! Here's to your best year yet. xo *I'm on a Battlestar bender, frak me!  

Headed down the 401 this weekend for a visit with the family. My Mum mentioned the Windsor Downtown Farmers' Market had opened the week before, obviously I needed to check it out. And it was good! I'm so happy to see the city taking steps with these types of initiatives. Windsor is in close proximity to some great agricultural towns like Harrow, Leamington, Kingsville just to name a few. It seems crazy that local, organic produce is kind of hard to get your hands on living in the city. I was less than impressed to see Remark Farms selling little to no organic and hardly any local. Their kale was from the USA mid June! But regardless the market had lots of fresh, local goods to chose from. I bought basil, mini cucs, fragrant garlic scrapes and some great natural deodorant from Faerhaven which I'm loving. Everyone was so friendly and ready to chat, it was such a nice way to spend the morning with my gorgeous Mother, I'll be back!
