Hi everyone! I’m trying to soak up every bit of summer because it is flying by!
Somehow, in between house renovations and shuffling my daughter to NYC for her ballet training, then driving my son off to practice with his bands so they can rock some of NJ’s coolest venues, I have managed to sneak in a little bit of beach time. Thank goodness! Because it’s the only thing keeping me sane right now. If you think it’s rough when your kids are young, just wait until they are teens. I’m running myself ragged… more than I ever did when they were little. But, I’m so happy they are passionate about what they do. It thrills me to watch them develop their talents, enjoy their art and create new friendships along the way! That’s what it’s all about!
So, how is your summer going? Relaxing? Or crazy like mine?
Well either way, I’ve got the perfect summer smoothie for you. Here’s how I’d describe it…
Packed full of nutrients and protein.
Have it for breakfast, lunch, snack or anytime really. It’s so good I think the kids would love it too!
