It’s been a surprisingly go-go-go type of day around here!
After some cleaning/laundry/dishes type tasks, I took a shower and headed out on some errands – to Lowes and Whole Foods.
Look what I passed by! Kohr Bros! Too bad I was too full from pancakes to stop for a custard.
The only thing you see here that I bought at Whole Foods was bananas – we have a surplus of veggies and fruits! But I did get some needed pantry and dairy items and some fish for dinner!
I set out on another spray painting project when I returned to hear thunder roll. I looked at the doppler, which had rain coming right over us so I brought everything back inside. But it never rained!! Grrrr!
It took me forever to get an appetite for lunch – 5 hours after 10 am pancakes = 3pm!
But I still wasn’t too hungry, so I had a smoothie to pack at lot in at once. This is a huge salad’s worth of baby spinach, plus 5 fresh strawberries, half a banana, a handful of blackberries (why it turned purple!), a cup of milk and some ice. All blended and topped with Erewhon Raisin Bran and chia seeds.
I’m currently chowing down and am not sure I can finish it all!
As soon as I declare myself finished, we’re headed to Karen’s for some more housework!

Just had a salad’s worth of a smoothie myself! Slurped it all down…you can do it.
Sarah @ Learning to Feed Yourself says
Wow!! Your produce looks so good! Is most of that from your garden?
Brie @ Coxswain's Dilemma says
I’m hoping my counter will look as lovely as yours when I return from the store! Envious of your garden, for sure…. (my wallet sure is)
I love the color of the shelf you used for your smoothie photos. Was that one of your recent painting projects?
Yes – TBA!
Katie @ Talk Less, Say More says
Oh man! Can I please have your counter full of produce? That looks amazing and delicious!!
Michelle (Peachy Palate) says
Looks like a good smoothie! I always opt for smoothies when I can’t work up an appetite! Loving the array of delicious fresh fruits and veggies, I want to go rob one of your huge peaches (they’re so tiny here in Ireland!) Totally loving that bowl too btw!
Lindsey @ Pas de Deux says
Did you know there is another Kohr Brothers just East of Pantops?
I heard that yesterday!
Still working up the courage to try this SIAB thang…not sure why I seem to think it won’t fill me up, you haven’t lead me astray for brekkie options yet!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says
I rarely find food that will keep me full that long! Haha good pancakes!! Have a great rest of your day, Kath!
That smoothie looks beautiful! I have a ridiculous amount of kale from my garden right now (I have a similar fridge – think the whole bottom shelf full of kale!) so tried to stuff as much as possible into a smoothie this morning. The color of yours is much prettier than mine was 😉 Out of curiosity, what different fruits + veg. do you not worry about refrigerating?
I don’t put bananas, tomatoes, stone fruits, avocados, potatoes or freshly picked garden stuff in. I put things like green beans, zucchini (normally), berries, greens, broccoli in.

i miss wham!
Laura @ She Eats Well says
Ahhh. You are making me crave smoothies. I love putting some crunchies on top too…love that texture!
I had custard two out of the three days we were visiting family — yummy!!!
Amanda @flecksofgreen says
I completely forgot about Kohr Bros! I can’t even remember the last time I had it–must have been on the boardwalk at the beach! Wow way too long lol Your smoothie looks great–it almost looks more like chocolate than black raspberry purple 😀
Averie @ Averie Cooks says
Ive never even heard of Kohr Bros …. but now I kinda wanna have what you wished you were having!
Angela @ Happy Fit Mama says
I just tried my first smoothie in a bowl last week. I’m hooked! For some reason I feel more satisfied eating it that way than in a glass.
Chelsea @ Chelsea's Lovelys says
That smoothie looks perfect right about now! I am on a smoothie kick right about now, always looking for new variations. Can’t wait to try it 🙂
Cait's Plate says
I just adore your countertops in the kitchen.
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy says
I love that you serve smoothies in a bowl! So much better than just drinking them 🙂
