Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie 

   
 

The Kitchen Sink Smoothie almost!  Ok, I’m using bits and pieces here.  I need to use a kiwi and a couple bananas.  But where to go here?  How about strawberries, grapes, substituting spring mix for spinach and kale? It’s that or go shopping.

Mad Scientist List:

One Kiwi (very ripe with skin)

Twelve Strawberries

One Cup Red Grapes

Two Bananas

Two handfuls Spring Salad Mix

2/3 Cup Vanilla Whey Powder

1 1/2 Cup Almond Milk

Start with the almond milk, spring mix and whey powder in blender.  Purée until completely smooth.  Add the kiwi  sliced into quarters and the grapes blending into smooth. Finish with the bananas and halved strawberries.  If you are drink it immediately freeze the bananas and use frozen strawberries.

      1. If I stopped drinking alcohol, I would have lost a ton. They take the place of lunch and are about 200-300 calories. With protein added they keep your stomach happy for hours. I have lost about 10lbs in a month with four smoothies a week instead of lunch.

      2. If I actually did more than change portions of food I ate and did it every day, I would be wearing new pants. I have a belt a hole further in. It works, but lots of prep work.

      3. Somehow there’s still fat involved. But everything still works. What more could you ask for? Besides going some place nice where they drive instead of walk. 😆

      4. I haven’t got there yet. But I seem to remember going to Canyon De Chelly and the road down to spider rock was very short but squeezed you in a slot. I was OK with a blind road. But others not so much. We never went back.

      5. It’s a beautiful view from the top. You don’t see much from the inside. The cliff dwellings are not close to the one road inside the canyon. Probably to keep people from trying to climb up to them

      6. There are a lot of them. I visited Tuzigoot ruins outside of Cottonwood, AZ they were saying to go while they are open. The park service is losing their repair budget for sites across the country. You will stay losing the ability to see sobe of them. Well that is what they are saying. He failed to mention any that were closing

      7. There are so many ancient sites that have that feeling. Some are dark and Erie. Some are energizing. The pyramid in Coba (Mexico) is like a lightning rod. Or you’re so out of breath climbing straight up to the sky

      8. It definitely opens the imagination to think of what was. The nature world has so many mysteries. I’m sure there’s a faith part to these places. If you are open or believe in they are special you sense more of an effect.

      9. I know that the ruins that I camped near was pretty small so I imagine that was only a family structure and not a clan. I could imagine the family that lived there and wonder how the little toddlers didn’t fall off the cliff. There truly was a special spiritual feel to it.

      10. I’m guessing they had something to block the way down. Blanket or branches to keep baby in. But even a small house probably held a decent number of people

      11. Yes, it sure seems like they would have some type of safety railings. It would scare me to death to live up there with small children. There probably were a lot of people living in a small area.

      12. You’re right, I doubt that any of them had the fear of heights especially being raised from birth living so far up on the cliffs. Yes, there would probably be a lot of extended family living together.

      13. I did free climbing as a teen and jumped out of a plane when I turned 30. I’m not so cautious, but respect the thought of hitting the ground really hard

      14. When I started a bad day was 7 hours outside. Now 7 hours is a good day. Some people are out 8-9 hours with overtime. Taking five pounds of weight each time the bag is loaded adds up.

      15. I can’t imagine having to walk outside for 7 hours a day everyday with a heavy bag on my shoulders! I’m surprised the P.O. is having financial problems with all the mail that has to be delivered. Now days there are lots and lots of packages being delivered from Internet sales.

      16. Packages are the money maker. Amazon is our biggest costumer. The PO is surprisingly effective. The people running it are horrible with little business experience

      17. I would think Amazon would be your biggest money maker! Online sales are out the roof and the PO has to deliver all those packages! So the powers that be in the PO are not good money managers or have good business sense?

      18. Weer are management heavy. We don’t treat the new cheaper workers right. We deliver Sundays, the new workers do. They lose 85 % of new hires and they make about 1/3 what I make per hour. New people used to get all kinds of overtime. Now not so much. Why pay us old guys overtime at all? Amazon pays us enough to deliver on Sunday alone

      19. That’s too bad that it’s management heavy! I feel sorry for the new workers and how low they are paid compared to the older workers. I would think that alone would cause a high turnover rate. Even more so having to work on Sundays.

      20. When I started you worked 50 hour weeks and an occasional Sunday. If they had those hours with off days they could plan for it would work. But they don’t let them work over 45 and if they work Sunday they get a day off but they are told a day or two ahead.
