One way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables is finding ways to include them into meals you already enjoy. One of my favorite ways to eat them is in a smoothie.
Tonight my fiancé and I enjoyed a pumpkin smoothie: with a banana and pumpkin purée mixed in, it was a delicious, nutritious treat! He could barely tell we were eating fruits and vegetables!
This is the recipe we used, with a few adjustments (since we didn’t have all of the ingredients). We used cinnamon in place of the spices, almond milk in place of soy milk, and a little honey (for him) and stevia (for me). It was a delicious treat before heading back to our apartments to continue with our chemistry homework.
Talking about chemistry, I should go back to studying!
What are some of your favorite smoothie recipes with fruits and vegetables?

I can barely believe how fast time has gone by these past few months. I am humbled by the blessings of the Lord. I can see His hand helping me understand the concepts in my classes. Before I study, I pray that the Lord will help me understand the concepts I am learning in such a way that I can go out and help others understand it as well. In a couple of weeks, I will finish up another semester of classes.
And then, right after Final Exams, I am getting married to my best friend! He’s a biochemistry major, and I am grateful for how he always puts the Lord first in all that he does. I love him, and I am excited to start a new life with him. I am grateful for the power of the Lord to seal families together in His House.
I have decided not to go to Peru for my internship. It was a painful decision, but hopefully I can go later on. When I have prayed about it, I feel that I am needed here and that I can continue to serve the Hispanic population here where I am. Starting in August, I will be an intern for a Outpatient Dietitian with her Certified Diabetic Educator certification. I am excited to apply the principles I have learned in Public Health to serve others.
This week in my Community Health Methods class, we are talking about Social Media, and I realized how much I have missed blogging! I look forward to having fun posting and sharing with you!
