Everyone morning before leaving for work I make a smoothie. With the Houston traffic, smoothies are the way to go.
1 Granny Smith apple or any apple (seeds included)
2 cups of kale (or whatever looks good)
2 cups of spinach (again, the same as the kale)
1 tbsp Agave/honey or whatever natural sweetener
1/2 pear (great sweetener)
8-10 ice cubes
1 cup of almond milk or water (less calories)
1 tsp flax seed. (Tbsp if you want a nutty taste)
white grape juice
You can add anything you want to your smoothie. For the most part the top ingredients are the base for the smoothie. Also, because I'm vegetarian, I add 1 scoop of GNC SuperFoods 25 Berry Flavor and 1 scoop of GNC Puredge Complete Vegan Protein Natural Vanilla to make sure I'm getting enough protein each day.
So all I do is put all the ingredients in a VitaMix and turn it on high. The longer the VitaMix/blender runs, the more liquified the smoothie becomes. I like my smoothies really liquified.
Atlanta is a very historical and beautiful city. It breeds excitement and energy. But I wanted to see the other side of her. The side that once played a significant role in the Civil Rights. In the past Auburn St. - better known as "Sweet Auburn" - a National Historic Landmark significant for its history and development as a segregated area under the state's Jim Crow laws. However, as time past the hardship, decay and neglect took it's tow on parts of Sweet Auburn. But under all the dirty and neglect there was still something beautiful about it. CLICK here.
I was in desperate need of an office space. So I decided to convert part of my basement into an office. However, I didn't want an average office. I wanted something different, vintage and retro. I have a collection of vintage junk in my garage, and decide that I had enough creativity to come up with the perfect office.
I have a jones for old suitcases. This is by far one of my favorite pieces. I used the legs of an old wooden tv tray and mounted it on to the suitcase. For my office it's perfect as a end table.
