This blood orange sunshine ginger mango smoothie is made with juicy blood oranges, sweet ripe mango, bright lemon, zippy ginger and hydrating coconut water. The perfect in-between-seasons smoothie! Full of sweet and bright flavor and good for you vitamins and minerals.
So techinically, it’s spring, right? But technically doesn’t mean much when it’s been cold, gray and raining for the past 3 weeks 🙄. I mean, you’d think mama nay nay would be just as ready as us to see the sunshine and the flowers, but I guess for now she has other plans.
But even if the sun isn’t shining, I’m going to pretend that it is by drinking all of these blood orange sunshine ginger mango smoothies. Because they are full of all the good fruit that’s in season right now, and pretty much = sunshine in a glass.
Which, second to actual sunshine is not a bad option.

I am pretty sure Seattle is confused about what season it’s supposed to be (SPRING, SEATTLE. IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SPRING!). Because the trees are blooming and the crocuses and daffodils have sprung up from their earthly depths but it was SNOWING last Friday, you guys. SNOWING. Like big wet flakes falling to the ground for at least two hours 🙄 I know we’re not the only one’s but it just makes me wanna say COME ON ALREADY.
(Very ready for sun over here 🙋🏼)
So while at first I thought I might be a little too far past the cold weather season to share this recipe for the best paleo bean free chili, after this recent flash back to winter-like weather that we’ve been having around here I realized that no, it’s definitely not too late. In fact, this chili recipe is probably needed now more than ever. Because if we’re gonna have to deal with snow at the end of March, we might as well be eating delicious paleo bean free chili while we do it!

We made it! Somehow it’s already March – I mean, thank goodness! This is always the time of year where I am just SO ready for spring weather.
If you’re like me, your head and your heart are all in on those warmer days and lovely spring produce, but your pantry is still stocked with hearty winter vegetables like beets, cabbage, potatoes and onions. Still. The same ones that have been on repeat for the last 3 months.
In all fairness, these vegetables really are an incredible way to nourish our bodies during the colder months. You know, that whole eating with the seasons thing really does have a purpose. And while heartier winter veggies usually end up roasted, caramelized, and sautéed, there’s nothing wrong with switching it up a little bit! This potato salad will help you channel some of that warm weather longing and turn it into a dish that hints at what is (surely!) just around the corner. Continue reading →
