LIFE'S LITTLE PLEASURES
Today I decided to appreciate a day full of Fall. In all reality Fall and it's many pleasures ends today. Starting on Thanksgiving, the world will shift over to Winter and Christmas. Out with Pumpkin Spice in with Peppermint! Goodbye Turkey and pumpkin, greetings Santa Clause and Presents! This is not necessarily a bad thing, I just think Fall deserves a little more time and appreciation. There is nothing more beautiful than Fall trees and the beauty that comes with this season. Today I captured some of it.
The canal by where I run has THE most beautiful trees. The picture doesn't even do it justice. I had to stop and take it all in. Nothing beats nature's pure beauty.
I love to incorporate colors into my meals! It's way more visually exciting and also helps make sure you are getting a variety of nutrients. This plate had a great display of Fall colors! Sweet potatoes are god's gift to earth.
Honestly, nothing is more amazing than watching thick cream slowly swirl into a cup of cold, dark coffee. This is such a simple pleasure of mine, really, it is one of the coolest things to watch. (don't mind my sharpie and extra large book)
This smoothie literally had everything and the kitchen sink in it. I started with my base of green max powder, Suja green drink and Greek yogurt; I also wanted to stick to my Fall theme so I added organic pumpkin puree. I was on the phone with my boyfriend not paying attention to what I was doing and before I knew it, I had half the kitchen in my blender!
These are the things that made the cut, I'm talking like high school football cuts (everyone makes the team):
-Dark Chocolate Chips
-Peas (leftover from lunch)
-splash of milk
-Green Max Powder
-Suja Green Drink
It turned out extremely flavorful! I'm telling you, you can literally throw anything in a blender.
These are just a few of my simple pleasures in life that I am thankful to be able to enjoy!
Life is so hectic. Take a minute, breathe and look around you. There is hidden beauty everywhere.
