I'm Candi! I'm a stay at home reformed Christian Mom to 4 kids and a wife to a husband of 11 years. We homeschool 3 out of our 4 children and love every minute of it.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Prov. 16:3

Day 3 is going good. The only way I am still going strong and not caving into temptation, is with Prayer. Praise God, that I've made it to day 3! You may laugh at that and think "it's only been 3 days", but if you know my addiction with coffee, several times a day, you would be amazed. So yes, I am praising Him for day 3. Thank you Lord!
I still love the almond milk! I've added the pulp already into lots of things. I made the kids pancakes yesterday and added the pulp into that along with almond milk in place of dairy or water, and they loved it!
We made green smoothies last night for dinner for My husband and myself and they were sooo good! The kids wanted to try it to and asked me to make more. So here's the recipe. This one isn't so green in color, which is probably why my kids liked it. This is what Sage said

"Mom I like this smoothie, but not the green one you made this morning" hehe, little does he know!


1 1/2 cups pineapple I used fresh
...3-4 cups organic baby spinach some people use frozen
1 whole banana
about 1 or 1 1/2 cups blueberries( I used the frozen ones from Trader's)
1/2 cup to 1 cup of water, just enough to where it starts blending up in the blender without getting stuck.

if you don't use any frozen fruit in this put a little ice so its cold.
enjoy! they LOVED it!

We are making lots of nutritious snacks for the kids today. One is called donut holes. All raw. I will post pics and the recipe later. I hope they like it. I would love to hear your ideas, if anyone has or is doing a raw diet. Any recipes you can't live without?
