A friend was generous enough to give me a bag full of fresh Rosemary.  Her plant produced incredible amounts, more than she needed.  My stash has been drying in the dark pantry, on the water heater, ready to be utilized.  The day came, and man did it improve the meal.

After plucking it from the stem, Survival Bros tossed several teaspoons in to boil with the potatoes.  It gave them a sweet taste, that was way better than ordinary spuds.

Then we cooked chicken with a few pinches of fresh Rosemary on top.  Now I don’t want to cook without it.  It also pairs well with lemon.  Tell me that doesn’t look succulent!Rosemary ChickenI’ve also been trying out shampoo and conditioner harnessing the power of both Rosemary and Mint.  I think this Suave product works really well.  I hope you can get a hold of some of this special herb.  For more on the uses and cultural significance of Rosemary, read all about it on Wikipedia here.  Thanks for visiting the blog.  Make sure to read some of our other posts.  %^).

I made the best superfood smoothie today for my friends and I. I used a base of Silk organic peach mango fruit juice with protein, and dairy-free vanilla almond milk. Then I tossed in a mix of frozen mangos, pineapple, strawberries, and a non-GMO banana. For an extra boost I added maca. It’s a Peruvian root that increases stamina. It’s my favorite supplement. Finally, I put in a scoop and a half of Sunwarrior vanilla rice protein powder!

I juice or make super smoothies nearly every day. It gives me extra energy to do whatever, from the dishes to writing. Drinks like this are a meal replacement for me. I usually have about 32 ounces, so I’m full. Smoothies are absorbed almost instantly in my body, and they are easy to process, unlike meat. I couldn’t ask for more, but if I was to add another supplement, it would be wheatgrass powder, or Barleans Greens. Time to finish my second glass. I drank the first so fast I thought my brain was going to freeze permanently. Get crazy with your own smoothies. Cheers!
