Had a few extra calories I had to drop. Once again, I was a bit naughty the previous night. So, I took a trot around the block. You would think it was the beginning of summer. But, it was just a taste of things to come. After all, its South Florida with its humidity nudging its way while we’re still in winter.

Yours truly didn’t mind, I was dressed to handle all sticky and above normal temperatures. With mission accomplished, I returned to base (well, home) and decided to replenish which I had lost with some good calories.

I grabbed my handy blender and tossed in half of an over-ripened banana, three strawberries, the juice of an orange and a few splashes of cold water. In a few Florida minutes my banana and strawberry smoothie was ready to drink. With the cool temperature of my smoothie I was able to guzzle down much-needed nutrients like potassium, fibers, vitamins, and more.

Guys, I’m happy!

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.
