At some point I'm grateful to have made the realization that "happy hour" doesn't always have to involve liquor.
Today my "happy hour" is this clean green smoothie.
Other days it's a margarita.
Other days it's eating tapas.
Other days it's hanging out with friends even if I'm not in the mood for a drink.
Clean Green ::
Pineapple, cucumber, kale, coconut water, turmeric, ginger, spirulina, garnished with hemp seeds, chia seeds & bee pollen
I am so excited to share this grateful #healthy moment! Today was the first time my teenager finally agreed to have his first #greendrink. He is now doing Track and Field and was looking to get some energy. Typically, when we go to @rawjuce , one of my favorite healthy local places in South Florida, my son refuses to try a #greenjuice. This time, he was open to trying a green smoothie and actually asked me if he could get one. 😊
This is progress. I have been drinking green juices and smoothies for over 7 years and have been waiting for this day when my son would actually drink one. Woo hoo! My oldest son who is in college has drank them as well as healthy shots. My hubby now drinks them regularly. 💚
The lesson here is never give up. Healthy habits will eventually rub off on others when they are ready. If you keep on eating and drinking healthy around your loved ones and modeling by example, one day they will catch on. Trying to pressure and convince others to follow suit does not work. This was a very significant proud day for me as a mom who truly values good health. I am hopeful that this is the beginning of healthier choices for my teen moving forward. Thank you to Raw Juce for making it so easy to grab healthy food and drinks when on the go.
unfortunately for this kid, it seems as if he’s ALWAYS teething. one of his telltale signs is that he becomes (even more) picky about what he’ll eat.. and vegetables are first to hit the floor (literally). 🤦🏻♀️ buuuut, he also loves smoothies so I use them as the most perfect opportunity to sneak in some greens and other healthy stuff he otherwise would turn his nose up at. 🥒 #momwin
ps- I think he’s finally getting his other front tooth that he’s been missing for almost a year! 🙏🏼
What am I grateful for? I'm grateful for the knowledge, experience, friendships and memories that I have gained with my time here at the Glades store. Today is my last day running the Flagship and no words can describe the feelings. I can't thank everyone enough who helped me lead this store through the years. I will miss my Flagship family!
I am also grateful for one of the most exciting opportunities I have had yet with this company. I will be opening up our Brickell, Miami location. I am determined to build another amazing team and show Brickell what the Raw Juce culture is all about! If you know of anyone who lives in that area and they are awesome tell them we are hiring for all different levels!
Come hang out with me during my last shift at Glades! #rawjuce#flagshipfamily#grateful#newchapter#Brickellcomingsoon@rawjuce@rawjuce_glades
