Sick baby - First Green Smoothie

Okay so I kind of checked out of blogging last week. Since I am a "Real" mom and not a professional blogger I can do that. My sweet little baby G has been sick since last Monday. She has been on antibiotics for an ear infection and has had a running, stuffy nose and cough. I feel so sad for her. It is a real bummer when your kids are sick. It's also a bummer for the mom since often they don't sleep well and are extra fussy. G is a pretty calm, sweet baby and she is trying to still be sweet but this illness is kicking her rear.

So in honor of G and her struggles here is a video of here first experience with a green smoothie. For her I just put in spinach, blueberries, and banana.

** This last week we added dandelion greens to our green smoothie and the kids couldn't tell. So there is one more green I can get into them. So far we eat collards, spinach, kale, chard, beet greens, and dandelion greens in our smoothies. So far so good.

** This past week I also realized I am just not going to post 5 days a week, which was my over ambitious original plan. With everything else I have going on, like back issues (which equals tons of doctors and physical therapy appointments), trying to homeschool my kids, and actually trying to live what I preach and make healthy food for my family, I just don't have the energy or desire to write that often. And let's face it. I don't really have that much to say! So the new plan is to post 3 times a week - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I hope you will still check in!


  1. Too cute. I want to squeeze that baby's cheeks. She's so adorable!

  2. My baby is my biggest smoothie eater! He downs them faster than my 7 yr olds
