A Refreshing Blueberry Smoothie (Non-Dairy)



HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRESIDENT OBAMA!!!
Stay young and healthy... drink smoothies! :-)

Have you ever danced Zumba?  Today, I did!  Zumba is a form of Latin dancing that makes exercise fun.  Today I decided to attend the Zumba class at my gym.  It was a 45 minute workout that really kicked my a**!  I was so sweaty and thirsty after the workout. 

Zumba was so fun, I just wish I had a friend to go with.  I admit I was a bit nervous to start dancing in front of strangers, but I eventually got over it.  For those of you who know me know that I only dance when I'm tipsy or drunk, so it took a whole lot of courage for me to dance in front of 20 girls.  I'm finally conquering my fears, better late than never I suppose.  Zumba is definitely not easy!  As much as I love Latin dancing and believe that I should have been born Latin, I was totally thrown off by Zumba.  You need a lot of skill, spunk, and attitude to dance Zumba, so I still have a way to go.  I won't give up though and plan on taking the same class again next week. 

I came home and gulped 3 glasses of water.  Half an hour later I made myself a Blueberry Smoothie for lunch, and it was just what my body needed after a good workout... a delicious and healthy smoothie loaded with antioxidants.  I couldn't have felt better about myself.  :-)  And then back to work!

  3. I felt so guilty drinking this until I remember that I didn't have to! It is a wonderful refreshing drink and it was very filling as well. The only thing I did different was use flax seed oil instead of the meal because that is what I had on hand. Great way to get the flax in to my son. Can't wait to try it with other berries.
