SENDING LOVE THIS VALENTINES

SENDING LOVE THIS VALENTINES

Last month, when our family visited, we spent a little time eating strawberry shortbread and making valentine cards for all of our family.  It was such a fun and special time seeing these two little ladies laughing, drawing pink hearts and eating all the whipped cream.

They’re growing up so fast these two.  I remember their first ever valentines picnic.  Aunt Sammy made cheesecake and we took our picnic outdoors.  It was the cutest thing.

I’m pretty sure these two are going to be best friends forever and will one day thank us for taking a bazillion pictures of them together…

Here’s to Grace and Ellie. To their friendship and to celebrating holidays with family.

Happy Valentines day from these little cuties!

PROTEIN PACKED POWER SMOOTHIE

PROTEIN PACKED POWER SMOOTHIE

 

Afternoons at our home are hectic.  I’m usually balancing homeschooling, home organizing and getting ready for my afternoon 3 mile run.  Sometimes lunchtime is just an afterthought.  These days I’ve found my lunchtime solution.  Enter protein smoothies!

This is a lunch I can get behind!  It’s packed with all the tasty fruits, and protein from AllWhites® 100% liquid egg whites, which contain 5 grams of lean protein, 0 grams of fat and only 25 calories per serving! I love that I can enjoy them uncooked, they enhance the flavor of my smoothie and keep me full and ready for my morning 3 mile treadmill run and a long day of homeschooling.

Today I’m sharing with you a super easy PROTEIN PACKED SMOOTHIE that takes no time to whip up.
