This long weekend was one to remember. It was filled with really good food, much needed conversation, sand, sun and relaxation.
I cannot remember the last time my husband and I actually connected the way we did this past Civic holiday weekend. It was intentional and it was needed. That’s all I will say about that.
Marriage, it’s an investment and the only way we can make an investment with anything is to spend TIME making that investment. Some spouses spend time investing in their business and building an empire, I had that opportunity and it wasn’t for me. My investment is in my family first before anything else. I pulled up my big girl panties a long time ago and realized that both my husband and I made the decision to get married and to raise a family and so building an empire does not fit into our lifestyle, not yet anyways.
MONDAY morning breakfast choices
A year ago I had a fascination with making smoothie bowls. Everyday pretty much I would see what concoction I could come up with for breakfast and it always included a hardy, colourful & nutritious smoothie bowl. It’s a great delicious way to start your day.
With eyes half open this morning, I poured my usual 1 litre of water to get the digestive system warmed up and then I sat down to cuddle and say good morning to my hubby on the couch. Like always in the mornings, food came to my mind and I started thinking of what smoothie bowl I could make today.
Colours of the rainbow
One of my favourite colours is purple, especially when it comes to food. I’ve recently started making my smoothie bowls again and I started off with my Tropical Mango-Banana bowl.
So naturally, today my mind took me to all the shades of purple. When it comes to smoothie bowls or smoothies in general, purple of course makes us think of blueberries right away. However, there are so many other choices you can add to get different shades of purple. My recipe today has a couple of those options in it and it tastes delicious. If I’m going to make something pretty, it HAS to taste great too!
Time to try..
So if you haven’t jumped on the smoothie bowl train, I encourage you to do so. Make it fun, make it your own and enjoy the colours of the rainbow & great nutrition.
