Smoothies - Take your pick

Hi! Two food posts in one day!. It's safe to say I'm trying to put on a little weight (my Ghanaian friends will tease me if I dare say "add weight") and stay healthy as well.

My new obsession is smoothies!!=
Especially since I have this awesome blender my mom gave me, it's old school but so much better than any new one I have tried. You can blend fine or blend it in a way that you will have small juicy chunky surprises :) all up to you. I've tried different fruits but today it's all about the mango! I haven't yet met anyone who does not like this fruit. Some ppl say it causes them to run(in other words, but if you take about a cupfull, you should be fine each time.

Also, cut up the fruit into cubes or slices the night before and put in the freezer. Blend the next day for a chilled smoothie :)

Peace. Love. Fabulousne…

prior to chopping, keep lettuce in salted water, flash carrots with hot water for about 5-10mins (will help soften them, unless you like it super crunchy).
Toss in your protein.

Homemade vinaigrette : Oil+Salt+pepper+vinegar...mix...simple n tasty.
I love Honey mustard, so definitely try that.

As a Doctor, I tell my patients that they must eat well to help in getting better. Eat well even when you are well. Eat healthy always. I will try to add health points with any recipe.

Health point:
Tomatoes and lettuce have Vitamin A (good for the eyes) and Vitamin C (good for skin). Veggies are generally a good source of fiber which help with digestion(eat a good serving everyday to prevent constipation). Red fruits and vegetables …
