Fueling yourself for a long day in the farm fields can be a tough thing to tackle. Especially when it’s 5 a.m. and you are simply too tired to “chew” on real food. If you have to wake up early like we do I suggest dusting off your blender and grabbing a straw. Rise and Shine Smoothie to the rescue!
This smoothie is not only amazing fuel for a couple of farmers, but it is the perfect way to start your day no matter what you have to tackle. My recipe can be found here on the barre3 website. In case you are not familiar with Barre3, I wrote a post a year ago about how much this form of exercise has helped me become a stronger farmer and runner. You should check out my experience here. I am obsessed with their online workouts and my lower back and hamstrings (which have totally been abused since I became a farmer) will always be thankful for this amazing method!
In other news, Taylor and I seeded over a thousand kale seeds today.
Raise your hand if you are a kale lover!
A man with an armful of kale is pretty much my dream man! I am one lucky lady.
After seeding our kale we put them in the greenhouse alongside our onions. I hope everyone is happy in there.
I have a delicious dinner recipe to share with you all tomorrow. Have a fabulous night!
