All Natural Brown Cow Plain Yogurt

Posted by on Thursday, 19 January, 2012

I’m on this new kick of eating plain yogurt, but was hard for me to find a decent brand. Until now. Out of the 3 grocery stores by me only one of them carries this particular brand and it’s more expensive but it’s freakin’ delicious. And this is coming from a girl who does NOT LIKE plain yogurt. I was tired of all the ridiculous amounts of sugar in the flavored ones, which lead me to my plain yogurt treasure hunt. And I’m happy to report that All Natural Brown Cow has changed my life. (Not really, I’m being dramatic.)… Read the rest

Blackberry Blueberry Orange Pineapple Smoothie

Posted by on Tuesday, 15 November, 2011

This smoothie is a just delicious. Berries are oh, so good for you and nothing beats a fruit smoothie on a warm day. This smoothie packs a punch of health nuggets such as: Vitamin A, Vitamin B1 and B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Vitamin E. Minerals include Manganese, Potassium, Copper and more. And don’t forget antioxidants. This smoothie brings you plenty of those.

Berries are on the expensive side and I would love to say that I only buy the fresh and organic kind. But I can’t afford the organic ones.

Ouch. Or the fresh ones.

Double ouch.

Pineapple Blueberry Orange Smoothie

Posted by on Sunday, 6 March, 2011

This smoothie tastes great and I put in some raw egg for added protein. You, of course, can leave that out, it’s just something I like to do. Also, I only use organic farm raised eggs. I’m lucky enough to have an egg lady that I can get fresh ones from but you can also find organic farm raised brands in the supermarket. I know Milos Organic Eggs are a good one to use.

1 Cup Vanilla Yogurt
2 Organic Farm Raised Eggs
1 Cup frozen Blueberries
1 Orange
1.5 Cups of Pineapple — chopped

Dreamcicle Orange Pineapple Smoothie

Posted by on Monday, 24 January, 2011

My new blender has been ordered, so it’s just a few more days until I don’t have to make my smoothie’s the poor man’s way! Hooray! But until then… here’s another yummy and easy to make smoothie.  For the fruit, I just used my Omega 8006 juicer to make it liquid and then I added it to my vanilla yogurt and stirred vigorously.  It was THAT easy.  Or, if you don’t have any fruit, simply use orange juice and pineapple juice and viola, you’re as good as gold — although it’s more healthy to use real fruit 🙂

Orange Pineapple Blackberry Smoothie Delight

Posted by on Monday, 17 January, 2011

A smoothie was in order; I needed a little pick me up.  But, woe is me, my blender is broken.  So I decided to improvise.  I used my Omega 8006 Juicer. I juiced all my fruits and then stirred in, vigorously I might add, the vanilla yogurt until it was nice a creamy.  It tasted awesomely tart and was perfect for my much needed afternoon snack.  Keep in mind that since I used my juicer, NONE of the fruits were frozen.  Frozen stuff doesn’t juice correctly!

2 Oranges
6 oz of Blackberries
6 oz of Pineapple
12 oz of … Read the rest
