I’ve been loving smoothies lately. I make a large batch in the morning, and keep them on hand for those times Arren just refuse to be put down, which happen quite often. Arren just loves his mommy’s bony arms. During those times its extremely difficult to even try to make something to eat, and I’m still learning how to eat with one hand while holding a growing baby with a floppy head with the other, its not as easy as you would think!
Smoothies have become my go to meal replacement, I keep telling myself that it wont be like this for long and soon he wont need me as much anymore so right now I’m taking the cuddles when I can get them and just really enjoying this time. These smoothies really give me that extra boost to be the best mother to him I can possibly be.
This is my go to smoothie recipe, the sweetness of the nectarines and the tangy-ness of the lemons make this a sweet and sour treat that I just can’t get enough of. Filled with all that good for you ingredients that keep me going while breastfeeding, and squat bouncing with a baby. The best workout I’ve ever had has been having a baby. I’ve really started getting creative with my bounces, Arren really enjoys all the strange bounces. What can I say I apparently make them weird, but I make a damn delicious smoothie too!
