Something I've learned in the nutrition world - as well as in the gluten-free community, Paleo community, Whole 30 community, and so forth, is you either smoothie or you don't.
Some people are totally against it, others find it intimidating (you don't have to, get my easy recipes here!), others argue about the way the sugars of liquid-form fruits work in your body (and as a nutritionist, I understand these points too, which is why I always add veggies to mine for balance) and others find them to be a luxury....
I'm not mad when health fads are trendy, so long as it's for the right reason.

If you've ever been to Solvang, CA you will know that everyone who visits must take the obligatory Dutch shoe photo. I now have three of these photos. One at two. One at six. And now one at thirty one...

I adore Mexican Food. Tamales, Carne Asada topped with fresh guacamole – and there I go.. I’m making myself hungry again. It’s hard to find a great Mexican restaurant that makes fresh food and is friendly to those that have gluten sensitivities.
My husband and I recently went on a family vacation to Colorado as I wanted to see family and show my husband some of my old stomping grounds as a kid – I also wanted my children to experience some of the same fun activities that I had in the past.
