I looked at the clock and realized.... I had exactly 15 minutes to quicly prepare SOMETHING to bring with me to a family party. Needing to go grocery shopping and without a plan in mind, I was on a mission to create something quickly, easily, and of course something that had to taste delicious. So, what did I do?
I grabbed my blender and started throwing stuff in. My husband walked in and said,"What are you making?" My response was, "I have no idea" hehehe. It all turned out really well though.

Most Americans today consume less than 3 servings of fruits and vegetables a day (and most of those servings are of fruit). With the convenience of processed foods and the fast-paced harried lives that we lead, it seems easier to opt for processed and packaged foods than it does to grab fruits and vegetables.
Fruits and vegetables are the key to good health and nutrition though. They contain the phytonutrients and the minerals that the body needs to sustain life. By simply adding in more vegetables, clients experience weight release, better energy, better bowels, lower pH, sleep better, relieve aches and pains, reduce allergy symptoms, lower blood sugar levels, reduce their risk of chronic illness, and more. The list could go on and on. Vegetables were put on the earth for us to consume......
Buyer Beware! Before you spend your hard earned cash on packaged and processed foods, you should know that they provide little to no nutritional value and in many cases, they are harmful to your health.
Processed and packaged foods are one of the biggest nutritional health destroyers. Despite what many package labels claim, (i.e. Cocoa Puffs is good for you because it is filled with fiber or the blueberry muffin mix is healthy because it contains blueberries –
which it usually doesn’t - or Nutella is amazingly nutritious for breakfast – which it isn’t), you will be hard pressed to find packaged and processed foods in the grocery store that will actually provide nutritional benefits.
Most packaged foods have been processed so much that they need to be fortified with vitamins and minerals. In most cases, you can consider them dead foods (and foods that bring death … oops, did I say that?).
Now, I understand, fresh foods may not always be readily ...
