This two ingredient smoothie is really delicious and it doesn't take long to whip up. I had an on sale pineapple that was ripe so I decided to start my smoothie routine with that. Pineapple and some orange juice. Easy. Peasy.
- 1 cup (liquid measure) Dole diced pineapple chunks
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- fresh pineapple for garnish (optional)
- Place both ingredients in your blender and use the smoothie button to puree. That's it.
In the last day or so I had a good blogging friend (Mary of Bunny's Warm Oven) recommend going gluten free as a way to help shed some pounds. Mary gave me a link to a superb article about gluten and how the gluten of today is far, far different than the gluten of more than 50 years ago. The wheat has been genetically modified and instead of being what nature intended for our bodies, the gluten in flours and hence bread, etcetera is not good for us. Even if your body is not sensitive to gluten (as in Celiac Disease), you should consider checking into going gluten free in as many areas as possible. Here's the link to the article.
This year I won't just be looking at labels for sodium levels, but I will be checking them a lot closer to make sure I am ingesting only the best and natural ingredients. Tell me what your goal is for this year. Have you set a goal? How will you try and keep that goal alive?
