Autumn Arrives

AutumnAutumn arrived with a blast of cold air and a bit of mild rain.

As we set our gardens to auto water via Mother Nature and we begin to ignite fires with our fireplaces rather than our BBQs we prepare for the wonder of winter.

This is the time of year it’s easy to stop our regular walking routines, indulge in heavy and not so good for our waist foods and sink into the doldrums.

How can we prepare and make winter wonderful?

How about a lovely Tex Mex Menu?

My favorite recipe is simple but colorful!

I warm tortilla chips with cheese then serve them up with Trader Joe’s Mango Salsa.

I use the salsa for many things.

Have you tried adding mango salsa to cream cheese for your morning bagel?

One of our local favorites is to create a layered bagel.  Fresh in season vegetables roasted and placed on herbed cream cheese with a fresh seasonal greens as the final topping.

How about going a bit Irish with Corned Beef and Cabbage Tarts?

And to make it all even more delicious how about a hot MatchaGT in soy milk?


About MatchaGT by ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the Smoothie Essentials blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. MatchaGT – the super premium Matcha Green Tea Introducing Matcha GT, the super premium Matcha Green Tea. Matcha GT is nature’s natural source of energy and antioxidants. Used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha provides a powerful pick-me-up plus antioxidants and other health benefits to keep the body, mind and spirit in perfect balance. While many forms of green tea are strained or brewed, Matcha GT uses the whole tea leaf providing the full benefits and bold taste of whole green tea powder. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
