Smoothie

Day 9 of the Mindful 21 challenge & it’s all about that smoothie. I wrote yesterday about how breakfast just isn’t my thang….and it still isn’t. You have little time in the morning (especially after yoga and 5 minutes of meditation in the morning), lunch and dinner are so much cooler, and you have so many other things to do in the morning!

So, smoothies are usually my go to in the morning – they’re fast, packed with plants, and full of nutritional goodies. Today, wake up and be sure to drink at least 8 ounces sit before you meditate for 5 minutes.Β  Then, head to the kitchen and pack the blender with the following:

1 apple (with the skin – that’s where the fiber goodness lies)
1 carrot (a big one)
1 cup of kale or spinach (kale is a bit courser – both are awesome!)1 cup of soy, almond or coconut milk
1 scoop of vegan powder or 2 tablespoons of chia seeds or 2 tablespoons of flax meal
1/2 cup of ice
1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Mix all and enjoy!

Happy Breakfast

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
