Thursdays mean recipes on the blog. So it’s Thursday…..and here’s a quick recipe:
I’ve been obsessed with this Green Vegetable blend for the last week! I haven’t even had to have coffee! It’s so full of vitamins and nutrients that give you energy and make your skin glow!
Breakfast Juice: Adapted from The First Mess
- 1 cup of chopped Kale
- 1/2 cup of chopped Cucumber
- Juice from 1 Lime (I used a hand juicer)
- 1 chopped Apple (I used the little apples that you can buy in a bag from Trader’s)
- Handful of a mixture fresh Parsley & Mint (buy from Trader’s and just pull off the stems…I use more Mint then Parsley because it’s good for your tummy)
- 1 1/2 cup of filtered Water
- 1/2 cup of frozen Peaches (try to get Organic)
- 1/2 cup of frozen Mango (You can get organic from Trader’s)
Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend for about a minute or two! Enjoy!
Now as we enjoy our Breakfast Juices, I wanted to share on my Trip to San Francisco from two weekends ago! It was by far one of the most AMAZING trips! The City is so beautiful, busy and diverse! It seemed as though no matter who you were, you were accepted. I loved it. And to make the whole trip/experience even more fun, we drove the 8 hours to San Francisco! (no this is not sarcastic…I genuinely love Road Trips!)
Driving through what can be considered as the “country” or “prairie” part of California makes me happy! When I was younger my family would take a 12 hour drive up the I-5 to go camping every summer. Driving through it that weekend, brought back so many childhood memories. Those times will remain as some of the best. 🙂
It was a beautiful drive though, full of rolling landscapes, cattle (I want a cow for a pet now), one bag of the ultimate road trip snack CheckMix, two naps, and two pit stops.
Love this guy!
Love how the fog sets on the mountains early in the morning 🙂
After the scenic 8 hour drive through the ‘Country Side” we were in The City!
So, the whole idea about going to San Francisco was for Valentine’s Day. Not only were we there for V Day but also the weekend of the Chinese New Year! It was insanely crowded everywhere we went and excitement filled the air. It was so inspiring to see so many people celebrate and take pride in a tradition that has lasted centuries….it was the honoring of a legacy.
The whole experience was inspiring! Walking through all of the shops in China Town was amazing! No wonder the culture is considered to be the healthiest…..they use pure herbs and actual REAL natural ingredients (if a bag of cookies says it has natural ingredients, it’s not real) like roots and seeds to cure headaches, stomach aches, toe fungus…pretty much everything. You better believe that if there was a little shop like that around my house, I would never buy a bottle of ibuprofen again (this is the hippy). 😉
Golden Gate off in the distance!
How beautiful is this City!!?? One of my FAVORITE things about it was the architecture….
Unfortunately, we decided to skip on the Golden Gate Bridge this trip, but are planning on it for the next 🙂
Here are some pics of the Grace Catholic Cathedral we visited. It was so beautiful and glorious!
Down yonder is the beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf 🙂
We LOVED the Cable Cars! It’s so awesome to see one of the World’s last manually operated cable car systems, still in motion today!
Love, love, LOVE!
I’m not sure what the Residence Club is, but I know that I want to be apart of it! 😉
Josh and I visited China Town, Union Square, and Fisherman’s Wharf. Our favorite was Fisherman’s Wharf being that we both love being anywhere by the sea. We shopped, had drinks, ate a lot of sweets, walked about 23.5 miles (which obviously canceled out the sweets 😉 ), rode the cable car, and visited the beautiful Grace Catholic Cathedral. The whole trip was a dream and will be going down in my book for the Best Valentine’s Day Weekend Ever!
Thanks for the amazing Surprise Josh!
