Happy Birthday Mommyland

Happy birthday mommyland

It’s hard to believe I’ve had this blog for six years.

In those six years I still haven’t found the key to being able to post consistently. I also haven’t been launched into “Mommy Blog” superstardom. I haven’t taken a look at the numbers but I’m quite sure this blog has cost me hundreds if not thousands of dollars over the course of those six years and all I’ve made for it is a few free products.

But you know what? I’m totally fine with that. Mommyland is here because I want it to be and I really don’t care (ok maybe I care a little bit) if only a few people actually take the time to read it. I write because it’s something I enjoy doing. I like telling my story and sharing my experiences even if I don’t have millions (or even thousands) of visits a month.

My hope is that someone tries something new because I told them about it, or realizes that they’re not alone in the craziness of motherhood, or chuckles at the sometimes crazy things that happen here in my life.

As we enter another year here in Mommyland I hope you’ll continue on this journey with me. If there’s ever anything you’d like to hear about or something new you’d like me to try, don’t hesitate to reach out, I’d be more than happy to give you what you need.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July from the Mommyland family to yours.

Making A Great Smoothie

2 Jul

how to make an awesome smoothie

I get a lot of messages asking for smoothie recipes and I do have a few favorites that I really enjoy on a regular basis. I love my Triple Berry, Totally Nutty, and Piña Colada smoothies and they are often my go to recipes when I’m in a hurry.

I am going to share with you my secret to a great smoothie. Are you ready? Add what you love. It’s really that simple.

I have my staples that go into just about every smoothie I make. Chia seeds are something that I always add to boost the nutritional value. Most of my smoothies also have protein powder in them too, mostly because I usually drink my smoothies as a meal replacement. You’ve probably also noticed that I often add spinach to my smoothies to sneak some veggies in.

The recipes I’ve shared with you have been the final draft of many different attempts. I learn a little something with just about every smoothie I make.

Experiment with foods that you like. The worst that can happen is you choke down a smoothie that’s not that tasty (or pour it down the sink). You may be pleasantly surprised by different combinations of fruits and vegetables.

My challenge to you is to create your own smoothie recipe. See what you can come up with, what combinations make a smoothie you enjoy as a snack or even a meal.

When you come up with a winner EMAIL it to me so I can give it a try too, I’m always looking for something new to try out. I’d love to share a few reader created smoothie recipes too.
