I don’t mean to complain


this getting old thing, I don’t really think its for me.

I know, it beats the alternative, but seriously. 

My wrinkles have wrinkles, and let me tell you I moisturize, obsessively.

Lately, I have seen a glimpse of a chin under my chin, that’s new.

My ankles crack and ache every time I get up, it’s not really all that fun.

Don’t even get me started with weight.

My scale and I are broken up, for good!

I’d say she was a big fat liar except that my pants are tight.

NO matter what I try, they are still tight.

Thank you SO much menopause (sorry if that is a bit TMI)

SO, we try to move more, eat less, blah blah blah

drink less wine,

and nothing changes;

That can really piss a girl off.

And then the girl craves chocolate milkshakes, because that’s really going to help the situation.

But I refuse to let mother nature win.

This healthy chocolate smoothie is loaded with nothing but good stuff,

frozen banana for a smooth and creamy texture

dates for sweetness

almond milk and almond butter for a bit of protein, and it’s just plain delicious

cacao powder, and  if you like, cacao nibs for topping

When you blend those all together, you end up with a creamy, delicious  healthy chocolate smoothie that will cure any chocolate milkshake craving.
