Simply Blueberry Smoothie

December 12

Apples and hydrants and cheeks kissed with cold
A fire is flashing, a paint stroke is bold
Red is the booth from which you can phone
Red is iconic, red is alone
A cloudless sky at noon, a cloudless sky at night
The deep, deepest sea. Ink, spilled when you write
Blue is fresh, blue is cold
Time ticks by, as blue grows old
And then blue swirled with red and a new world was here
Of magic and starfish and a dream of a seer
A birth of a colour, of berries that stain

And we call it purple.
Even so, nothing rhymes with purple.

Orange, Sesame and Banana Smoothie

July 16

I used to be a cereal-only girl for weekday breakfasts. But, I can confidently say, that is no longer the case. Now, I am generally a cereal or smoothie or oatmeal breakfast lady. I think I can attribute this change to working from home. There is something nice about eating the same thing every morning that makes it so much easier, faster, and more predictable (in terms of how much food you have to bring to the office, what time you’re going to get hungry etc) when you’re working from an office; luckily, I don’t have to concern myself with consistency anymore.

As much as I wanted to eat everything when we were in Vancouver, eating out three meals a day is a little much. Solution: smoothies from Whole Foods. Instead of going out for a big breakfast, I was able to keep up with my smoothie addiction by frequenting Whole Foods every morning. Even though I would never spend that much on a smoothie in ‘normal’ life, when we’re on vacation the little indulgences feel way more acceptable. One morning when we were sipping our drinks, I got the dreaded case of food (or drink) envy. Intense drink envy. It wasn’t that the drink that I got was bad, but my boyfriend’s was so much better. I snuck a few sips and then ordered the same one the next day. Man, it was good.

Green Smoothie

August 26

Last week I was visiting a friend and she introduced me to this smoothie.I am totally a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast. It’s not that I’m against eating new things, I just always go back to my trusty bowl of cereal and fruit. So, when my friend asked me what kind of smoothie I wanted for breakfast I was super original and suggested banana and yogurt.
