KCL Friday Finds

I'm pretty excited about this week's finds...as always. I keep wondering if I'm ever going to run out of great small businesses to feature, but I'm beginning to think that won't be a problem. Each week brings new shops and the most amazing new finds. And now that Valentine's Day has come and gone, I am all about Spring! I know, it's still cold here and there, but we can enjoy the remaining cold days by looking forward to fresh flowers and all-things-Spring. Today's finds is entirely about home decor...not something I planned intentionally this time. It just wound up that way, and I couldn't be happier. These shops have all you need to give your home a cheery refresh. Enjoy!


This first one is one of the top home decor trends for 2018. With macrame and fiber art exploding in the world of home decor last year, I'm happy to see it continuing into 2018. The beautiful pieces at Spinning Weaves are woven and include the most beautiful colors and patte…

Frozen Pineapple-Kale Smoothie



There is no need to feel guilty over ice cream when you can enjoy a fruity frozen treat. This tropical pineapple kale smoothie is loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, as well as vitamin E and Calcium if you use almond milk. And it's so delicious! This green smoothie really just tastes like a pineapple smoothie, so it's an excellent way to sneak in more veggies.

Wal-Mart has recently started to carry frozen chopped kale in large bags for just over a dollar! I put in it everything - smoothies, pasta sauce, rice, soup. It has an extremely mild flavor and doesn't get a mushy texture the way spinach does, so don't be afraid to add it to your own recipes. It's all the goodness of greens without actually tasting them.

This particular smoothie doesn't have a lot of protein, so if you want to have it as a recovery smoothie post-workout, add a scoop of vanilla protein powder, like this Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Sweet Vanilla Bean.

INGREDIENTS
*serves up to two
  • one cup almond milk (or whichever milk you like)
  • half cup freshly-squeezed orange juice (about 2 large oranges)
  • one banana
  • one cup frozen pineapple
  • one cup chopped frozen kale (Fresh is fine too, but I find that the frozen kind blends very well and of course make the smoothie more cold without having to add ice.)
