i’ve spent the last two days living the dream, and let me tell you, the dream…is exhausting.
“the dream” of course is referring to the fact that i’ve spent the last two nights screaming, dancing and gawking at a hanson concerts. no bigs.
biggest life dream of my 9-year-old self: fulfilled.
wish fulfillment is a taxing deal though, let me tell you.
waking up this morning, my body demanded nutrients, water and elevated feet. about eleven more hours of sleep would be nice too.
i just can’t party like i used to.
or a pumpkin white mocha for that matter.
this is something entirely, all together more amazing: health that tastes like creamy, dreamy pumpkin spice.
love your body – feed it green food.
and by all means, love your taste buds and feed them pumpkin and cinnamon!
super-green pumpkin spice smoothie
you will need…
2 cups of raw organic spinach

1 tsp nutmeg
a pinch of ginger
