Apple with Kale Smoothie

Over Christmas all my kids were terribly sick with a barky cough, runny nose, and fever. Poor kids. I felt so bad for them!!! They really wanted to just enjoy Christmas, while one of them told me "I didn't know people could get sick when it's Christmas." Bless their hearts.

Finally this week, everyone has been feeling better and no one is coughing anymore. Yay!!! But I started to feel achy with a sore throat and an ear ache right at the beginning of the week.  Knowing that we have some special events coming up this weekend, I just knew I could not afford to get sick. So, because I believe in vitamins and healthy and clean eating I took it to my smoothies to help me feel better. That's right.

First of all, I avoided all dairy (milk), because there are many studies and my personal experience have shown me that whenever I start to feel a bit sick, congested with a sore throat, milk actually makes it worse. So for breakfast that first day I had an Apple with Kale Smoothie. Kale is a super food with a very high content of vitamin C. Exactly what I needed!!!

So I got my ingredients out and took them to my blender.

Apple with Kale Smoothie

2 apples (I used Gala)
2 handfuls of kale
1 banana
1/2 cup of almond milk
1/2 cup of water

Blend away!!!!

This has been my favorite green smoothie so far and I was so glad to have come up with the recipe!  I loved the texture from the apples, it made it juicy and chunky, and I loved getting a high boost of Vitamin C (from the kale and the apples) for my system that sure needed it!

I had the same smoothie again at dinner time and at breakfast the following morning.

I feel great and achy feeling is gone!!!  bye bye germs!

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
