I apologize :(

Sorry for those of you coming here to read my Thursday Thirteen. I had it planned all week to type up thirteen smoothie recipes as suggested last week. As you can tell I never got that done. Have you ever had a week were you felt like you were run ragged and busy. Busy ,but then again do not feel like you really accomplished much? Kind of like you were running in circles chasing your tail and now you are just worn out, but for what???? That has been my week for some reason. You know I have not really set aside quiet time with God this week either. That just dawned on me. I am pretty positive that would be the reason I am feeling wore out and pulled a hundred different directions in my mind. I haven't felt like I have had enough sleep this week either. I need to get back to eating more veggies and fruits I think. I mean I have been eating good but not as many raw living foods as I usually do. You ever feel like your body is trying to tell you something? I think mine is wanting to smack me upside my head

Well for those of you that said you liked smoothies and maybe even came here to see if I posted the recipes to are a few to hold you over until next Thursday when I really hope to have 13 of them posted. I hope everyone is having a more productive and better organized week than I did. :)...ENJOY!!!

In 'Grape' Shape

"While trying to loose weight,it is important to get a good source of potassium in your diet. Grapes are a great way to restore your body with this much needed nutrient."

2 Cups red seedless grapes

1/2 Cup sparkling grape juice

1/2 cup boysenberries (anyone know where to find these? I love the things but can not find them. Maybe it just isn't the season yet?.)

1/2 cup blueberries

2 cups of ice


Banana Split Smoothie:

2 bananas

1 can ( 8oz) crushed pineapple

1 1/2 cups of milk ( I use Soy )

    I think I'll have to wait a bit to test these ones, I'm freezing too much... The calendar says summer, but not the weather.

    i didn't do the tt this week either, sometimes you really need to have alot of time to commit to it and the sun was shining today, i didn't want to have to do that.
    i can't wait to see those smoothies recipes, my kids love them. i make one very similar to your banana strawberry one, only i've never tried it with pineapple. i bought a fresh pineapple today, hmmmmmmmmmm, you've got me thinking!

    Okay girl - I need to dig out my blender. Those sound just awesome. I didn't know that aboaut grapes :). YOu can't find frozen boysenberries either? I know they are not as great as fresh ones, but still - they should still have all the nutrients.
    Okay - I will make the first recipe tomorrow - I think...Thank you so much for sharing.
    Oh, and regarding your week - I have been like this for the past month - chasing my tail...
    Have a blessed Friday.

  4. Cool! I don't know which one I want to try first....they both sound so good!

    Thanks for sharing, and yes it's been like that here too this week. Ready to rest this weekend!

    That's why we need to treasure the good days even more.

    My favorite smoothy...
    Peanut butter Banana!

  6. The banana split smoothie sounds pretty good. I'll have to give that a try when it gets a bit warmer. :)

  7. If only I had what it takes to make one, I'd be enjoying one now!
