Blackberry hemp seed smoothie

BlackBerry Smoothie:
BlackBerries
blueberries
1 tbs goat yogurt
Rice milk to desired consistency
Two to three handfuls of spinach 
one orange
*Blend together and serve; top with hemp seeds. 
It is awesome when your four-year-old comes up and asks you to make a blackberry smoothie! It is equally awesome that when you get fast food they remind you how unhealthy it is because that is what you are training and teaching them! I love that my kids are learning the importance of moderation and the importance of making choices to feed their bodies healthy the majority of the time so that occasional treats are not on obsession or a habit! It's not only great for them but it's great for us! Great accountability and great lessons on the power to choose and the self control to resist! Self-control is something I pray that we have as a family and individually in the area eating and more importantly in the area of abstaining from things that are not edifying or pleasing to the Lord! It is In the small areas of life that we wanted to have self-control that gives us the practice and discipline to have self-control in the big areas of life! 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Galatians 5:22, 23
