At From Meade to You, you'll find some extremely gift-worthy mugs and greeting cards, along with a super cute gift wrapping option. The Botanical Flower Mugpictured above is available in several different designs, each with different quotes on them. 

Personally, I love this dandelion mug the best!If you have something specific in mind, you can get a custom design on any coffee mug, travel mug, or camp mug. It's a great place to get a cute, custom gift!

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.)
