Week of April 5th – Sale on Eggs

Easter is right around the corner. In years past it may have passed right by me, but now that I have a little one those holidays have regained life in my world. In the spirit of hiding Easter eggs, I wanted to send some savings your way. Your eggs are laid fresh in the week that you ordered them. I wonder how long the eggs in the store sit on the shelf before you get to them?

Blueberry & Spinach Smoothie
(I’ve been crushing on this type of smoothie lately. Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder and you don’t even need the honey. Kid approved.)
Ingredients:
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 overripe banana fresh, or frozen (overripe bananas are extra sweet so less sweetener is needed)
1 cup spinach
1-2 TBSP honey
2/3 cup 1% milk (I use almond milk. If I used cow milk it would be whole milk.)
1/3 cup organic plain greek yogurt
1 TBSP ground flax seed (ground up first)
