25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

Strawberry Vanilla Protein Smoothie


This strawberry kale smoothie is packed with protein, Vitamin A, calcium, and a lot of other nutritional goodies. It's a super sweet and healthy way to use up any lingering strawberries you may have from the farmer's market. It's also a great way to sneak some apple cider vinegar into your diet.

While I am trying to eat cleaner these days (okay, except for my weekend treats) I do have a tendency to use protein powder in my smoothies as a quick protein fix after workouts. Though it can be tricky with protein shakes. The mixes don't always taste that great, or they tend to have a weird aftertaste.

This Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Sweet Vanilla Bean tastes great with tropical fruits, but I had some leftover strawberries and thought I'd git it a try. It's always a great way to sneak in veggies too, so I added frozen kale into the mix. The Stevia In the Raw gives it just a little extra sweetness without an aftertaste, and the banana makes it creamy. I really love to use unsweetened almond milk, because it's only 30 calories per 8oz. serving, but you can use regular milk if you like. If you wanted to up the vanilla flavor, go for this Almond Breeze Almond Milk, Unsweetened Vanilla.


INGREDIENTS
  • one and a half cups unsweetened almond milk
  • one cup frozen kale (fresh is okay too)
  • one small banana or half a large one
  • half packet of Stevia
  • 8-10 fresh strawberries whole
  • one scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • one tsp apple cider vinegar
Blend until smooth and enjoy!

  2. I haven't tried kale myself, though my parents had it after retirement.

  3. You really can't taste the kale in my smoothie recipes. That's why I love them. You get all of the nutrients, but it just tastes like a sweet fruit smoothie.
