I have been a real little homebody of late.
I hear a familiar cry from the teen daughter daily and it sounds like this:
“Mom, you are going to make some more smoothies today, aren’t you? Can I have the blueberry or the strawberry?”
I just smile and nod and get up to make another batch of fresh fruit whipped up in the blender, served cold in a dinner glass.
Happy that I’m getting my child to drink her three servings of fruit a day, I’m also enjoying these delicious spring/summer concoctions myself.
I’m also plying Uncle Don with them on a fairly regular basis so we can be sure he’s getting his fruit too. I haven’t seen him complaining about it yet. Who would? lol.
There are so many different kinds of fruit smoothies one can create. There is the tangerine smoothie, banana, blueberry, blackberry, kiwi, mango, strawberry, watermelon, dew melon, and even cantaloupe for you fiber lovers.
Now, just how is this a “spiritual” topic, I’m sure some are wondering…. Well, I have an answer for that.
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. —1 Corinthians 6:19-20
God wants us to take care of ourselves. He prefers that we eat healthy and strive for balance in all things. If we’re overweight, we need to work on this to the best of our abilities by a healthy lifestyle and reasonable daily exercise. We will feel our best when we make the effort to take care of our bodies, hearts, and minds. It is spiritually correct to do so.
