I was just texting my friend who’s going to the beach. I said “Have fun! Don’t wear too much sunscreen!” He said, “why not?” So I thought to myself, well this is too much to text. I decided I want to put together a presentation for him. Then I realized I could turn it into a blog post. Then I remembered I covered sunscreen briefly in a post last year!
I pulled up the article, My Summer Essentials, and found what I was looking for. I also found that my summer essentials are essentially the same. Still all about juice and berries for the same reasons:
One thing that has changed, is the playlist. I’m going into this summer with a much more “chill” attitude. When I was in Los Angeles, I didn’t have my desktop with all of my music. Coming back and putting 12,000 songs on shuffle has been very exciting. I’m rediscovering so much.
Here’s a link to my playlist on Spotify.
Something new thing I’m really digging this summer, is Sweetgreen. I don’t think the Back Bay is really known for it’s food. There are a handful of good spots, but on the whole it’s a lot of touristy stuff. Sweet green saved my life. I get lunch there often enough I’m a gold member, working my way up to black, because I want to throw a party on Boylston.
I always make my own, and get the same thing:
I’m going to finish this off with a recipe. Last Summer Essential recipe was for a pink lemonade. This year’s recipe is also a drink, and pink. Strawberries and Cream Smoothie. Really easy to make, tastes great. Probiotic Strawberries and Cream!
2 cups of water (the good stuff)
1 hefty handful of frozen strawberries
1/4-1/3 cup of coconut butter
1/4 cup coconut kefir
1 tbsp raw honey
pinch of sea salt
pinch of vanilla
Throw everything into the Vitamix, water last. That’s incase you make a mistake, the whole thing isn’t awash. Blend!
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it!
