I’m glad to see that one of my faves (blueberries) is slowly hitting the shelves with a tad lower in prices compared to a few weeks ago.  I can’t wait for them to plummet further so that I stockpile in my freezer. But anyway, I couldn’t help myself; I fetched some and have put them to use in my diet.

Thus, on this cool morn when brain could do well with a little brain boost, I decided to make a great smoothie. In my standing blender, I added a freshly squeezed orange, half of a speckled ripe banana, two strawberries, and of course, a generous handful of blueberries.

A splash of cool water was also added. I blended my way to a superb serving of fiber, potassium, vitamins and antioxidants. My smoothie was just perfect with the right amount of natural sugar. Already, I feel my brain power has taken a sizable leap in clarity; (well, in my mind’s eye). Studies have revealed that the consumption of blueberries over a period can enhance memory.

Bottoms up guys!!

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. 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.
