Relax With a Glass of Green Smoothie!


Its certainly been a while since I have last made or even tasted a glass of smoothie. This is mostly due to being imprisoned by Gestation Diabetes throughout my pregnancy. I swear, everything I love, I could not have because it had too much sugar or starch so it felt like I was in prison. Lol! Now that DJ is here I can go back to making my healthy smoothies. It will also be great for me as I try to get my body back.

I decided to have a refreshing healthy snack tonight and this old favorite smoothie recipe came to mind.

Ingredients:
  • Two big handfuls of baby spinach
  • One handful of frozen strawberries
  • One small tangerine
  • One cup of coconut water
That is all that you need! It tasted sooooo good and knowing that its good for you is simply a plus. This made about three generous servings. 

Do you make smoothies at home? Share your recipes. Would you like me to post more recipes?

Taste Of Motherhood

Derrick Vincent Jr. (DJ)


On December 23rd, I gave birth to my lovely son and got my first taste of motherhood as he looked at me for the first time. My life was about to change forever but for the better. 

Everyday during my hospital stay I would look at every finger, toe, wrinkle and facial expressions in disbelief that I now own a person. A person that I instantly fell in love with and one who will get my love unconditionally until I am old and gray and took my last breath. I love this little boy with all my being.

My New Baby - Keurig 2.0 - Product Review

Keurig 2.0 Product Review


As my life is about to get busier and crazier with a newborn, I had to make changes in my house. One of those changes is getting my tea and coffee fix quickly. Yes it might seem really silly to you but my coffee or tea is the first order of business for me and the most important business of my day. I am Jamaican so my stomach expects something hot, first thing in the morning. So, with that said, say hello to my baby before the real baby, The Keurig 2.0.
