Welcome to my own little corner of the Web! I love my family and do what I can to leave as little of a carbon footprint on this beautiful earth we call home. We have become a paperless kitchen family! We make a lot of our stuff homemade. I love coffee and web browsing on blogs/facebook/pinterest, healthy organic (GMO free) cooking, and lots of kisses from Chris, Aiden, Coren and Mason...I am complete. I thrive to make our lives better. I have began a new stage in my life for my children. I want to show health to my children and what better way thru our every day life. I am currently on a weight loss journey and I will be sharing my success and failures on here. I am here to motivate and keep me accountable to reclaim my health and get my life back! Enjoy the ride :)

Hemp Protein Strawberry Bannana Smoothie

Shakes made with a good vegetarian protein powder (and little fruit), such as hemp, are increasingly popular in cleansing programs for weight loss. I like these smoothies as a quick and nutritious meals whether your on the run or just a busy stay at home mommy! You can add any fruit or/and vegetable that your little heart desires. Today I put this little thing together! Yummy

Ahh yes….and despite what you might think, you will not get a high from eating hemp seeds or sipping on hemp protein in a smoothie. Hemp (Cannabis sativa) is not the same as the drug Cannabis Indica.
