Easy Triple Berry Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to get healthy nutrients. Usually, I love to go to a juice bar to get a smoothie to drink while I work or relax. My favorite type of smoothie is one with berries, especially one with strawberries.

Though, since the pandemic began and I started working from home every day, I decided it was time to try to learn how to make my own version of my favorite berry smoothie. Especially since I had just gotten a new and better blender in the beginning of 2020. The smoothie would be a version where I can control all the berries and juices going into it. This way I can tailor the smoothie to only include the fruit that I like.

You can read my recipe and full article at Delishably – Easy Triple Berry Smoothie.

Hope you enjoy this smoothie!

Poetry Taste #16: "Embracing 30"

Below is a nonet poem "poetry taste" I have recently written about how I was feeling one year ago before I turned 30 last December.

At first I was not looking forward
To turning thirty - but soon I
Realized it is not so bad.
As thirty drew closer, I looked to embrace
it. A chapter
To newly
Start for

I also wrote an acrostic poem version of this poem subject. The acrostic poem is published on Hubpages. Please visit the Hubpages "My Hubs" section below in this blog for the link to read the acrostic poem titled "Thirty."

Poetry Taste #15: "Reclined Twist Practice"

The mountain of stress
Had formed intricate knots in my back.
I know exactly what needs to be done
To make me relaxed - it is not a stranger to me.

Moments later I am lying on my mat,
Arms outstretched to the letter T;
Legs bent in and folded to my torso -
Ready to twist about in a reclined twist.

Twisting and turning one way,
Then the other.
Wringing out built up of stress,
Stretching and untwisting the intricate knots.

Bending but not braking;
Loving to love myself.
I breathe in and breathe out,
Keeping rhythm with my stretching self.

Finally, I am relaxed and stress-free;
And one of my favorites in yoga
Has melted away the mountain successfully -
The reclined twist pose.

Poetry Taste #14: "Fish Jumping for Joy"

Mullet fish leap high
Out of the backwater in
June in Florida.
