Homemade Suja Sunset Protein smoothie

Hi friends! How’s the day going so far? I confidently say it’s an improvement from yesterday. The Pilot is feeling much better (thank you for all of the get well wishes for him!), my eyes don’t feel like they’re on fire anymore (three cheers), and we all slept in. It’s like Christmas when that happens.

Thank you so much for sharing your healthy living budget tips this morning! There are so many amazing suggestions in there, and some that I’m going to work on implementing in our house ASAP. As far as getting free workouts at home, I put together some videos for Glutino’s blog with some favorite moves if you’d like to check it out! For food, I forgot to mention that a great money saver can be recreating restaurant or store-bought meals and snacks at home.

I did this one today with an at-home version of one of my favorite smoothies: Suja Sunset Protein! 

Homemade suja sunset

This smoothie tastes like a delicious dessert and the nutrition stats are awesome (10g protein and 160 calories), which make it a great post-workout option. After scanning the ingredients, I realized they were mostly items we had here at home, so I decided to give it a try.

The Christmas cop has arrived in our house. It happens every year. I get a little excited to break out the snowmen and twinkly lights and he’s all “honor the bird” and won’t let me touch the xmas supplies until we’re eating day-after-Thanksgiving sandwiches. Humbug.  Even though I have to hold off on all Christmas […]

(vegan and gluten-free! This post is sponsored through my partnership with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze.) It can be difficult to think of an intro for a recipe when you’re still in the process of eating and swooning over it.
