On this blessed and beautiful Saturday morn, I opened my eyes and gave thanks to the Powers that Be. At a quick glimpse on the outskirts, I realized that there was fog in sight. I didn’t make that deter me from looking ahead. Ahead, there’s brilliant sunshine to kiss my chocolate cheeks.

So, like a true trooper I went to my kitchen. There, yours truly made an awesome concoction. It was made up of fresh black and strawberries. With a handful of parsley I made I drop in my standing blender. Added a generous squeeze of fresh Florida lemon and a cup of cool water.

With gusto I blended and made my smoothie ingredients fully acquainted. It was thick yet smooth and possessed just the right amount of natural sugar. I garnished with fresh strawberry and a sprig of mint. Then, it was time for a few close-ups. Within a few minutes, I devoured the fiber goodness I created. Me and my dear palate smiled knowing that we were satisfied.

Now, it was time to hit the speed walking trails. It didn’t take me much time to build up great speed. What do you know? I started a run. I took off quite rapidly and maintained speed.  Usain Bolt, the fastest man on planet earth couldn’t catch me. Well, it’s all in my head. I guess that’s the power of my smoothie.

Guys, I hope you have a wonderful and spectacular day. As always, be kind to your loved ones as well as your beautiful palates.

Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
