Smoothie Queen

I feel like I keep posting about  fast and easy foods. I’m sorry if I seem repetitive or uncreative, but convenience seems to be the headline for my life lately!!! If it takes me five minutes or less to make it, then I’m all in!!!

I have been living on smoothies. I mean who doesn’t love them. They are a great way to incorporate some extra greens, protein, fruits, and vitamins! They also don’t give you an overly full/ uncomfortable feeling. Yup, smoothies are awesome.

Normally, I just take whatever frozen berries I have laying in my fridge, throw in some greens, protein powder, spirulina, and chia seeds and call it a day. Today I was feeling more creative and inspired by the fall weather.


Isn’t this color green gorgeous?! Usually green smoothies come out a muddy green/brown color, but looks so appealing to me :) Wanna know what went into it?


Still interested?? Ok fine I’ll tell you :)

Asian Pear and Pistachio Smoothie

  • 1 small asian pear
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 TBS pistachios
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or almond, rice, soy etc)
  • Spinach (as much as you want!)
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 TBS protein powder
  • 1/2 cup plain 0% greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 packets stevia (I like mine sweet, but add or subtract as you wish)
  • 4 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients and enjoy!!!!



This was so incredibly satisfying. I also was obsessed with the texture. It was so smooth and balanced. Try it out.. I dare you :)

Well, life continues to be absorbed by Big Fish. I suppose it’s not a bad way to spend my time ;)


Run down

The past ten days have been incredibly intense for me. We learned an entire broadway show in just TEN days!!! That is ridiculously fast.

I haven’t mentioned my role in the show. I am what we call a “swing”. My job is to know every female track in the show, and be able to go on at any moment. I go on if someone is sick, injured, has a personal day, is on vacation, etc. Our show has 9 female ensemble members and I am responsible for them all! It truly is the most difficult job I have ever had. It is also really stressful.

I think everything is catching up to me, because when I came home from work today I felt really run down. The instant I start to feel a tickle in my throat I turn to this smoothie. It sounds a little funny to some people, but I promise it tastes delicious. It will help to boost your immune system and kick that cold before it even has a chance to take over your body!!

Before I share the recipe, I need to introduce you to my number one immune booster:

UnknownSpirulina is awesome. It is a blue-green algae and is considered a “super food”. This stuff is OVERFLOWING with nutrients, and is so incredibly good for you. It is also a serious source of vegeterian protein, and will also help to boost your energy!
