Almond butter, strawberries and bananas blend beautifully into a smoothie that tastes like an all-American classic.
Simplicity is totally underrated. We’re definitely living in a society that’s obsessed with being busy. In college, I worked 3 jobs, took 18 credits, was on multiple e-boards and loved being the girl who did everything. I was addicted to that feeling of importance that being busy gave me. I loved went people asked me “how do you do it all?”
But to be honest, even though I felt a sense of accomplishment from by being part of so much, I really short changed myself in a lot of ways. I never truly felt committed to anything. I was the jack of all trades and master of none. I felt like I was always telling myself the same excuse “I’d be great at this if I had time…”
I don’t think I’d want to go back and change anything because operating that way taught me so much about what I don’t want to do again. It’s a lesson I don’t think you can learn unless you experience it. However, I love what simplifying my life has done for my happiness, stress levels, productivity, creativity, learning and true sense of accomplishment. Finally I’m focusing on 2 or 3 things at a time instead of 10.
I am so far from perfect at this and struggle HARD with my multitasking addiction, but cleansing myself from my busy-ness obsession has helped me transform my blog, which has in turn opened so many incredible opportunities. So if you’re feeling like “OMG there’s never enough time” all the time, then it might be time to take an honest look at how you can simplify.
Speaking of simplicity, this smoothie is a delicious example. Only 5 simple ingredients pack bold flavor. I had my sister be my taste tester and her first comment was “Mmm it tastes like America.” So there you have it.
