I took Heather's idea and chopped up some collard greens tonight for smoothies. I plan on using unfiltered apple juice, peaches/blueberries/pineapple (whichever one i feel at the moment), hemp protein powder, and a drizzle of maple syrup. I'm not sure how I feel about greens in smoothies yet, but many of you say it's good, so .... I shall try.

Today I will make another recipe from the Ayurvedic cookbook, a soup. Going to try and create a weekly menu plan again. Haven't done that in a long while.

Finished my taxes yesterday and got a nice refund, which I will put mostly into the savings. I'm looking on freecycle for a sewing table, but if i need to buy one i can. i would prefer more antique/vintage looking than anything else. anyone have suggestions?

Today will be spent with a friend, possibly, in the snow, then a cozy dinner, then to bed, to bed, early! School tomorrow. I do feel much more restored than the out-of-sorts that I've been feeling lately. And in one month, it will be much better outside ... at least in this part of the world!




  1. I've not tried collard in a smoothy but I LOVE baby spinach - you really can't taste it but you know it's there and it looks SOOOO healthy!
    I've just gone back to menu planning too - def. helps to schedule in those new recipes you want to try I think.
