On Sunday I went running with a friend of my dad’s and blog reader, Susan. We ended up running a 2 mi out and back, with a little bit of snow and a lot of sunshine. Susan and I had a lot of similar interests to chat about. She told me about being a raw food enthusiast, with a focus on blended fruit smoothies. After our run Susan gave me a lesson!

*Add a little bit of water to the bottom of the blender to get everything moving.

I have been making myself fruit smoothies every morning this week. Monday and Tuesday I had them alongside my typical breakfast. Today I had just the fruit smoothie for breakfast and it was the perfect amount of fuel.

Monday-Strawberry, orange & banana

I used to make smoothies every once in a while, but never with just fruit. I am really enjoying this tasty and simple breakfast. Let me know if you try it, and what you think!

Happy Valentine’s day!

Any healthy date night ideas?
