  1. I usually don’t go a day without a super drink of some kind (my usual: carrot, apple, spinach, kale, celery, cucumber, avocado, strawberries, blueberries, banana, flax oil… and ginger thanks to YOU 😀 ) SO, your raw super fuel is a must try!! We’ve gotta fill our bodies with all of these amazing nutrients so we can enjoy a little of the delights once in awhile too… right?!! btw… I LOVE salmon (now I have a craving! Wait a sec… “{in a raised voice} Honey, will you pick up some salmon while you’re at the store?” Okay, I’m back… guess what we’re having for supper tonight!!)

    • Ha!! Since he’s retired and I’m still working, he most definitely does the laundry, vacuums, cleans the bathrooms, sweeps the floors, makes sure I have my chai tea on hand in the cupboard, rubs my feet… he’s the MAN (I’ve trained him well ;D ) Happy wife… happy life! No… in all honesty, I never have to ask him to do anything for me. He’s just taken the bull by horns and runs with it ~ no complaints from him. He’s a keeper!!

  3. Sandi has me hooked on green smoothies too! I have one almost every day, much to the chagrin of The Man.
    That salmon looks yummy, and U KNOW I love oatmeal. Those things look yummy, and that recipe sounds like it’d feed a small army!
