Few things in life are certain. One of them being that swim suit season is right around the corner and I have a thing for pool parties. And really cute bright colored swimsuits. Another thing in life that is certain is that I am really bad at "dieting." It doesn't really work for me. Never has. Never will. I am terrible at depriving myself of something I really want. For example if I make a proclamation that I am not going to eat sugar for an entire month, I will literally give in within 24 hours. Who am I? I came to the conclusion many years ago that the best thing for me is just to eat what I want, when I want, and keep it all in moderation.

I feel like it's basically what all those fabulous French women do, but California style. Gaby style. It's how I roll.

One of the things I do to keep myself in check, is start my day with a smoothie. This one is part fruit, part vegetable, part freshly squeezed orange juice and some chia seeds! You could add hemp hearts, flax seed, bee pollen or whatever other add-ins you prefer! It's bright and fresh and fruity and I love it!

    Wow! Just made this delicious smoothie. It’s very tasty. You wouldn’t even know spinach is in this. It’s got a tropical flavor because of the mango but the banana balances it out. Thanks Gaby for this yummy recipe.
