Less than 48 hours in the new home and I am already joyful, albeit tired. To be honest, I am exhausted!!! We have been moving, unpacking, and I have been cleaning like a mad woman.  Who knew there would be so much to do when I thought we had so little.  We spent the last few years in spaces half of the house we bought.  So, I need energy…super energy! There is just so much to do.  Not to forget that I am still chasing my super energetic kid around.  So, I need energy and I need quick meals–something that the whole family can love and enjoy.  You know what that means, right?  Smoothies!  Green smoothies, to be exact.  So, I have been putting my Blendtec blender to use, making green smoothies–at least a green smoothie a day.

Green smoothies are a quick source of energy, take only minutes to make, and they are portable! Perfect on the go meals for this crazy time in my life.

Yesterday I had a few plums ripen.  Plums are not only delicious—they are packed with health promoting properties and nutrition.

Here are a few of the properties plums offer.

  • Plums are rich in fiber, which makes them great for relieving constipation and digestive problems.
  • Plums are rich in potassium, which helps to manage blood pressure and reduces risk of stroke, so they protect your heart.
  • The reddish-blue pigment in some plums, known as anthocyanins, helps to clean up free radicals, which makes them great gate keepers against cell damage and cancer.
  • Plums are a great source of calcium, so they support and improve bone health.
  • Plums are filled with antioxidants—great for your overall and brain health, and contain anthocyanin and quercetin, beneficial for preventing brain cell breakdown.

Here is one of delicious recipes I whipped up to help me keep going.
