It’s Been A While

Hello Everyone!

So it has been a while since I’ve posted. These past few months I’ve been organizing and getting things together; which has made it difficult to be able to type up recipes. Goodness I can definitely use 4 more of me LOL Though I have not been able to type up recipes you can still follow me on Instagram or FaceBook (Rozeppelin’s Healthy Living) for photos, inspiration and my wacky self :0) 

I am excited to say that I am almost done with one of my projects that I have been working on! Thank you so much for supporting. Be back at full force soon! 

Tons of Love

A Green Smoothie for the Green-phobe

This made my mouth water… Nom nom nom

food to glow

green smoothie Despite the clearly undisguised green of this green smoothie, I pretty much guarantee that once sipped even the the most stridently anti-greens guy or gal will at least say, ‘hmm, not as bad as I thought it was going to be.’ Score!

If it is your good self who is unaccountably afraid of the big bad green smoothie, just take a gander at the ingredients: pineapple, clementine, banana. And a little bit of spinach. The mild, baby stuff. If you can handle the more bitter end of the leafy greens – I’m talking about kale really – go for it. The more bitter the better from a nutrition and disease-prevention…
