Lactaid Smoothie and a donation
A few weeks ago I entered a contest with Lactaid and I made it to the next round! If I win, my recipe will be featured during the tasting pavilion at the foodbuzz festival!!! Exciting right!! Full disclosure: Lactaid sent me a coupon to pick up some of their fabulous lactose free milk. Lactaid also wants to spread the word about lactose intolerance along with the health benefits of consuming dairy products. To find out more you can learn with a splash of fun at moovision.com.
In all truth our fridge is always stocked with Lactaid since John is lactose intolerant. John is actually the whole reason behind my proposed smoothie!!
You see John and I met at the gym... yeah we're gym rats. He won me over with a chocolate peanut butter protein shake. Apparently the way to my heart is through food (who would have guessed). So this smoothie is the reason we're married... yup I married him for his smoothie making abilities :)

On another note. Last night I donated my hair again! A few years ago I donated to Locks of Love, which takes the donated hair and makes wigs for kids going through cancer treatments. This time I donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, same concept except they make wigs for women of all ages!
