Banana & Nectarine Smoothie

We have some fruit trees in our garden, and the nectarines are ready for munching....sweet, juice, organic nectarines, yummy. :D  So I thought I'd try a smoothie with them, and it turned out really good.

3 bananas
3 nectarines
1/2 cup rice milk
3 tbs ground flaxseeds

Blend together and enjoy!  Makes 2 medium - large & thick smoothies.

Garden Salad with Feta & Mushrooms

I like to make this as a side-dish or as dinner if we've had a big lunch or late lunch that day.  It doesn't matter how much of what you throw it, so just use your discretion:

mixed lettuce leaves
raw sliced white mushrooms
green pepper
plain feta cheese
sunflower seeds
pumpkin seeds

olive oil
himalayan crystal salt

Mix together all the salad ingredients, drizzle over some olive oil & sprinkle some salt and mix until everything is coated.  Mmmm. :)
