The end of the year brings a lot of heavy, life-y things into the foreground. How did we grow and change? All of the things have been veering on the edge of completely-out-of-my-control lately, so every night before I go to bed, I make a list of things I have to accomplish the next day (FYI: surprisingly effective strategy for getting a good night’s sleep) (Also, magnesium is some good shit). So the legit work seems to follow along when I’m penciling out my stretches and veggie snacks.

5 Day Green Smoothie Challenge I was recently inspired by Holly to try out the whole green smoothie thing. I love vegetables even though I probably don't eat them as often as I should. I also had never tried making a smoothie with greens before, so I wanted to try it out-for fun and health. Good news-green smoothies are awesome! Since this was my first encounter with the whole thing I started small with a five day challenge. Day 1: I made a smoothie of 2 cups blueberries, 1/2 a banana, 2 big handfuls of spinach and 1 cup of water. Day 2: I made a smoothie of 2 apples (one gala and one granny smith), 2 big handfuls of spinach, 1 cup water and 1/2 cup crushed ice. Day 3: I made a smoothie of 1 cup raspberries, 1/3 cup coconut flakes, 2 big handfuls of spinach and 1 cup water. Day 4: I made a smoothie of 1 1/2 cups sliced peaches, 2 big handfuls of spinach, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/4 cup raw oats and 1 cup water. All berries and the peaches were frozen and slightly thawed before use.

Two Blue Lemons: Lemon Blueberry Scones Direct quote: "These are vegan?" Yup! They are also quick, easy, and relatively healthful as scones go. Virgin coconut oil is my preference over margarine or canola oil in vegan baking because it is simply oil from coconuts, is minimally processed, and contains no additives. Ingredients:2 cups whole wheat pastry flour1/2 cup whole oats1 tablespoon baking powder1/4 teaspoon kosher salt1 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/3 cup vanilla bean sugar (or 1/3 cup raw sugar plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)Zest of 1 lemon1/2 cup cold virgin coconut oil1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)1/3 cup oat milk (or soy, almond, hemp, etc.) Preparation:1.
