“Pick-Me-UP During the Fall” Smoothie

These first days of Fall, I feel my energy levels running a bit low so this afternoon I decided to make a pick-me-UP smoothie from some foods I had stocked in my fridge and pantry. Luckily the energy-boosting ingredients, like organic flax seed and extra virgin organic coconut oil, played together nicely with the other nutritious additions.

It’s important to have a well-stocked kitchen at times like this, when your brain is a bit fuzzy and you are tired. Please see Linda Bonvie’s, “Essentials For a Well-Stocked Pantry,” series for ways to create a healthy kitchen environment in your home.
