Get Your Peachy Greens On

Not ready for summer to be over? You aren’t alone. The perfectly ripe and juicy farmers market peach stands with you. Lucky for them (and you), they still have a few weeks before they will officially be out of season. Although they will  soon say a sad farewell, please don’t fret.  We know peaches will be back in style next summer, unlike bright neon and high wasted shorts.

I used the last peach in the fruit bowl for my Sunday morning smoothie, along with some spinach, apple, kale and mint. The combo of mint and peach took my smoothie to the next level.  The fragrance alone gave me an extra spring in my step. That is quite the fete on a lazy Sunday morning.  It is definitely going down in the books as one of my favs.

Cherry + Almond + Kale Smoothie

We have all heard the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”.  This is as true as saying Justin Timberlake is the most beautiful man on earth (except my husband).  Breakfast  kick starts our metabolism and gives us the brain fuel we need to take on the day. Although I know this to be true, the simple task of making time to sit down for breakfast seems close to impossible.  It is a scramble to get out of bed,  showered, dressed and out the door on time. Which is why smoothies are my saving grace.   They are the perfect  on-the-go breakfast.  Quick, nutritious and delicious. To cut down on prep time in the morning, chop all ingredients the night before and put them in a mason jar. Come morning all you have to do is toss the mason jar contents into your blender, blend and go!

A few more reasons a Cherry Almond Kale smoothie is the right way to start your day…

-It will give you more energy than hitting snooze.

-Eating a nutritious breakfast ensures you won’t get hangry (hungry + angry) before lunch.

-Sitting in traffic is much easier when sipping on a delicious smoothie.

-You will be more focused and productive at work, which will lead to a promotion which means more money to spend at the Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale
