MORNING SMOOTHIES

HI SISTERS! After much advice from Dad, I started to make smoothies in the morning. The first one was terrible! But after some practice, I’ve started to make a lot of progress! This morning, I tried out this:

CARROT GINGER SMOOTHIE

  • 1/2 a carrot, chopped into small pieces (Large carrot – might be 1 or 2 whole carrots, or handful of baby carrots)
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, chopped into small pieces (can be more if you like the flavor)
  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of green tea (cold) – this can be substituted with just water or juice, etc.
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)

Blend together and enjoy!

Hey systers,

So soon, and we’ll all be together again! Only 2 more nights until I see Sister 1 again, and 2 weeks until I see Sister 3, and 3 weeks until we all see each other again in Taiwan, home of delicious food galore. Can our stomachs handle it? I hope so. Well, here’s my Thanksgiving post, and I’m sorry it took me so long. That fall semester crunch after Thanksgiving break gets me every time!

Well, I celebrated meaningful Thanksgiving with my friends Lily, Noelia, and Nelson. Since we were staying in Lily’s apartment for the break, it made sense to gather our small potluck party there. Nelson brought the Martinelli, Lily was in charge of sweet potato fries and dip, Noelia covered the pumpkin pie, and I made mac&cheese (out of the box, yes). Also, frozen pizza…’Twas a feast in the eyes of us young undergrads, to be sure. Oh, and egg nog was had, of course. There may not be a happier Thanksgiving moment than eating the leftovers straight out of the bowl with your best friends.

Real Thanksgiving was spent working at one of President Nikias’s many holiday parties, this one a Thanksgiving feast for students.They paid us for the entire time we were there, even though we were let off 2 hours early. So I got paid to stuff my face with incredibly delicious Thanksgiving food? No complaints here.Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, all that good stuff cooked to perfection. One more word: pie. I actually had a hard time moving at a normal pace afterwards…Ultimate food coma. Not unlike the one I’m prepared to experience every night we’re in Taiwan.

Can’t wait to see you guys 🙂
Love always,
Sister 2


blueberry smoothies

This is me (Sister 3)  with my solution( i got that word from my science class). Here is what i put in my smoothie:

2-3 Handfuls of frozen blueberries(so frozen there’s ice stained blueberry purple around them)

1-2 Spoonfuls of vanilla yogurt

Lots of honey (I drizzled it for about 10-15 seconds)

About half a cup of milk

You should also add some ice cubes. 5-10 is a good amount.

I used a Blendtec blender. If you have one, make this and press “Smoothie”.

This should feed about 2 cups. Enjoy!
