Our Family is studying Spanish in Costa Rica to prepare ourselves for ministry in Ecuador. Costa Rica is a unique country located in Latin America between Panama and Nicaragua. It is a country famous for coffee, fruit, and tourism.
We have found that fruit is considerably less expensive here and we have enjoyed replacing fast food with fresh fruit. In fact Angelita and I have replaced breakfast and lunch with fruit smoothies. While this practice began for financial reasons we have come to enjoy this new lifestyle.
Weekly we post the result of or fruit market shopping trips on Facebook (if we are not already Facebook friends now would be a good time to look us up, just search Timothy Angelita Downing. When you find us make sure to send a friend request!). In response to a recent fruit post one of our friends asked for a smoothie recipe. So, this morning we took pictures of the ingredients of a typical breakfast smoothie. We add and subtract ingredients from time to time but, this is basically what we are drinking for breakfast each day. Since we never really measure by weight we have a regular sized banana in each picture for scale.
Each ingredient is packed full of vitamins, nutrition, and antioxidants.
