As we all know, it is so important to get moving every day! We have our favorite activities, but sometimes the mind just needs something new. With spring trying to show it's face lately, it's time to get out the frisbee! This is an inexpensive, fun activity that gets us outside, communicating with others, running, jumping and having some fun! So find a park, beach or soccer field, pack some healthy picnic foods, get out the frisbee and head to the park!
Want something a bit more advanced? Try Ultimate Frisbee! There are leagues popping up all over! So, check out your area and find a group that suits your personality. It's a great physical and social activity! You will most likely need some cleats and you may want to invest in an ultimate frisbee. However, it is likely a more seasoned ultimate player will already have the frisbee to use during meet ups. So get out the frisbee and get moving!
Alright Florida friends, do you remember the ice cream cones that were mixed with some sort of amazing orange slushy deal at a particular theme park when you were a kid? I'm not sure what it was called, but it was right outside of the singing bird thing! You know what I mean. Anyhow, I have still not gotten over the occasion craving for that treat! I have also been working with kids lately and have been playing around with some fun ideas for them. So when I opened up my fridge tonight and saw that one lonely orange, well....you know what I had to do.
1 large orange
1/2 cup coconut cream
1 T honey
1 t vanilla extract
6-8 pcs of ice
Throw all ingredients into the blender until smooth.
Febuary 14th, Valentine's Day, is the day we let our significant others know how much we care about them through a big box of milk chocolates and maybe a fancy dinner out. I'm not going to say that doesn't sound great, but maybe we could fine tune it a bit, huh?
Personally, this date has taken on a whole new meaning for me. On that day in 2011, I was planning to be rolled in for a new kidney the following morning. With a big surgery like that, I was under strict eating guidelines, which didn't include much other than clear fluids. I was forced to take a look at just how important the "Valentine's Chocolate & Fancy Dinner" really was. This year, let's enjoy our food....no liquid diets for me! But let's also take some time to plan out our Valentine's Day and not get sidetracked by the mass marketing of Valentine's day at 6pm Febuary 14th. Let's make it mean something and let's make it good, let's consider now some healthy Valentine's treats.
