Thrive and Etsy January 19, 2012

Are you into a regular routine, now that school’s back in?  Are you thriving in your new goals?  This year, I started making wonderful smoothies for breakfast! I am a consultant for Thrive in Canada, it just got launched Dec 1st, 2011..  You can find my page here: http://www.c-parker.canada.shelfreliance.com/  Even if you aren’t from Canada, but are in the US you can still order off this site! As it’s an american based company that is rapidly expanding.  It will soon be launched in Japan!

  My morning breakfast is a smoothie using Thrive freeze-dried food!  It is the simplest way to prepare a simple but nutritious breakfast in the morning,  It’s mess free, cuts down the preparation time, and zero waste!  I have a pantry full of mangoes, apricots, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples, pineapple, peach slices, red seedless grapes, that are freeze-dried.  They just added cherries in a pantry size can, which I can’t wait to try out!!  The advantage is that when they aren’t open, shelf life can be up to 25-30 years!!!  Once open shelf life, 18 months-2 years!   My routine breakfast: any variety of 1/4 cup of all the fruit (I just listed) with a few pinches of spinach. Rehydrate by putting some water on top of the fruit for 3-5 minutes. I’m getting my fiber!  Then I put in my blendtec (best blender ever!!) a little bit of yogurt, and 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder.   Push the smoothie button, and less than 2 minutes a yummy delicious filling breakfast!  I can vary the taste, by adding more or fewer types of fruits I like! There is also bananas…I haven’t gotten those yet.   In Canada, we can’t yet order the flavored yogurt bites, but I can’t wait to try them ou, when dairy and meats gets added into the line!!  Next time, I will have to post a picture, as of right now, I have just the empty glass, beside me..which I should rinse out soon, as the natural sugars will adhere to it.   Then I go over to Etsy, and look at how my shop is doing. www.precioussadies.etsy.com    I’m in the process of adding hair accessories this week.   I have so many things to list, it’s overwhelming on most days, so slowly I’ll get everything up! Keep checking in!  Christina
