Tomorrow my mom arrives from Brazil and I can’t be more excited. I can’t wait to give her a huge hug and to show her my pregnant belly. She is coming to see the birth of her grandson and to help me to take care of him as well. I haven’t seen my mom for about 7 months or since last June when she and my sister came to spend summer with me in Canada. I miss them a lot! It’s very hard to live so far away from your family, but I feel very blessed anyway because every time I need my family they are always beside me even though there are 9,299km (5778.131miles) separating us.
I wish my sister could be here with me as well, but she has a 14 months old child so we thought it was better for her to stay in Brazil since in three months my husband, our new baby and I will be visiting my country. So my sister will meet her nephew then. I told you guys she is going to be his godmother too? She is so happy with that 😉
You are going to be so happy with this recipe today because it is so delicious and at the same time healthy. I know everybody is trying to eat healthy at the beginning of the year (I can say that by the amount of traffic I got in January). So I thought a green smoothie would be a great way to go. I love green smoothies because they are so easy and quick to put together, delicious and healthy too. This is one of my favorite ways to start my day especially when you don’t have time to prepare breakfast before leaving to work. Just blend for few minutes all the ingredients together and you are ready to go.
