Mexican food with coworkers. Guys, I think I may have found a margarita that I like better than mango. Introducing the prickly pear margarita. Amazing.

Dinner at Brewery Vivant. Great food and beer! I ordered the Grilled Mozzarella and Garden Vegetable Sandwich (Marinated kale, watermelon radish, golden beets, nicoise bun – served with truffle fries) and accompanied it with a Contemplation (menu description: Look for whispers of apricot and nectarine on the palate, mixed with the floral aroma of the hops grown in northern Michigan.)

Highlights from the Week, Workouts, and My Smoothie Kick [Vlog]

Hello!! I was too lazy to write a post tonight so I did a video update for you guys. Enjoy!

Here’s the smoothie recipe I was talking about. I got it from Sweet Tooth Sweet Life and Fannetastic Food. This is how I make it:

Pear and Pineapple Green Smoothie

  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 pear (sliced and cored)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup  of pineapple
  • 1 large handful of spinach
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice

Just throw it all in the blender and then drink up! Let me know if any of you try it, or have other green smoothie recipe recommendations! I’d love  some ideas.

Have a great night!
