I’m not so good with allowing quiet into my life. For some reason, I’m always looking for something to look at, listen to, or do with my hands. It’s no wonder that it has gotten more difficult for me to sit down and write something that matters. I can’t tell you how many times I sit down at my laptop and alternate between typing and deleting the most mundane sentences. It’s simply because my brain cannot process thoughts of substance clearly when I have too much stimulation. There was a time in my life when I could do this, but that time has passed and it is dying a slow, painful death. My brain just cannot handle multiple tasks at one time unless it is parenting-related. And, let’s be honest, even that is a little dicey. 

I’m sure some of this is due to smart phone usage and the immediacy of information. And some of it is likely due to age. And anxiety. And a smattering of other things I cannot yet identify. I’m working on it. Slowly but surely, I’m working on taking things on one at a time rather than all at once. Funny thing: getting sick reminds me of this practice almost every time.

Recently, like many families I’ve talked to, we have dealt with the dreaded Stomach Bug. It hit me quickly and first, then took down the rest of us in 2 day increments. For me, the recovery from an illness like this means taking it super slow. Reintroducing foods one at a time, listening to my body extra carefully, and thinking carefully about what I put on my plate. If only I could learn to take such care in other areas of my life.

After our recent bout of the Stomach Bug, I made it a point to get more probiotics into my system. I take LoveBug probiotics, so that was a given. I also am a pretty big fan-girl when it comes to Health-Ade Kombucha, so their Ginger-Lemon flavor was on repeat for days. Of course, at some point, for my sanity, I needed to mix it up. Enter: this tasty smoothie! It’s creamy and flavorful without being too overwhelming on a sensitive digestive tract. #sorrynotsorry for being honest here. Just keeping it real! 

Ginger Lemon Kombucha Smoothie

makes 2 small smoothies or 1 large

*A coupe notes: for some, the acidity of pineapple may not sound great until a few days after being sick. If that’s the case, I’d recommend swapping milder mango or leaving out any fruit except for the frozen banana. Ice is always another great option to add in! You know your body better than anyone, so listen to it and don’t push it!

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy!
