These days I feel like I practically live in the grocery store. With all the “clean eating” we’re doing, it means several trips for fresh produce and fruit. The upside is there is less waste than ever, because we’re using up everything fast.
The kids are crazy for fruit and we all eat some form of it at least once or twice a day. And smoothies? A favorite all ’round. We have a ton of different ones that we make, but lately, this Pineapple Orange Smoothie has been hitting the blender on a regular basis.
Fresh fruit. Juice. Mix. Only just a few minutes of blender time stand between you and a glass full of sunshine.
When I was a kid, Lucky Charms was a favorite cereal of mine, right up there with Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch. The kids don’t like it as much as I do, so the box in the cupboard is probably more for me than for them for a very infrequent quick fix. But do you see what they added to the marshmallow mix? Rainbows! Love it!
