Superfood Tropical Smoothie

I can’t pinpoint why, but I have been seriously dragging during the second half of the day.

Now that I’m back at work, I’m trying to use the slow cooker more. My daughter can have something wholesome for dinner, and I have something piping hot and ready to eat when I come home, not to mention leftovers for a few more days. I’ve really enjoyed the recipes in Julie Kaufmann’s book, Not […]
