I thought I liked NYC in the summer, but I really liked NYC in December. Christmas trees in the windows, lights galore, and window displays were A++. However, holidays aren’t holidays without family. I’ve been in the Carolinas for a couple weeks and for the first year EVER didn’t travel to Minneapolis to visit my cousins, aunts, and uncles. No snow this Christmas- just mid 70’s and rainy. Bizarre, yes, but still beautifully lazy and fun. Hope everything for everyone was merry and bright.

This Monday morning was a bit of a party-crasher after spending my weekend celebrating art, music, and some of my dearest and best friends. Between a new exhibit opening at Redux downtown Charleston and Octopus Jones “Phantasmagoria” album release show in Columbia, I was a little bit in love with everything. Except for the Grammys.
Along with good times, good people, and a little too much food (i.e.,french fries from both Rarebit and Thirsty Fellow), there was liquor to be had. Sunday morning, I nursed myself back to health with a half-bottle of Cherry-Chia Kombucha and a jar of juice (kale, cucumber, celery, orange, ginger, lemon + wheatgrass) I had made Saturday afternoon and, by the grace of God, left in my car (aka makeshift refrigerator) overnight. Later, I used seeing Danny as an excuse to indulge in expensive chocolate pastries and a latte.
Delicious treats aside, I definitely needed to readjust this morning. I juiced brussels sprouts and followed that with a smoothie.
Brussels & Berries:
- small bowl of brussels sprouts
- two carrots
- two granny smith apples
- 1/2 banana
- handful of raspberries
- some chia & flax seeds
* First, I juiced the carrots and apples. I didn’t end up using all of the juice. In fact, I saved about half of it. If you don’t want extra, only juice one carrot and one apple. I added that straight to blender and threw in the banana, raspberries, chia&flax seeds, and some ice. Not difficult.
* I juiced brussels sprouts into a separate glass. Drank it in one big gulp. Somewhat difficult.
