Creamy Avocado Smoothie: Drink Your Vitamins

Posted on Updated on

photo 5I am sure you’ve got that killer homemade guacamole recipe that you love to dish out when friends are over or on special occasions. If you are an avocado fan you are probably used to adding it to your salad or sandwich as well. But, have you ever tried drinking it?

Recently, I felt a little daring and decided to drink my avocado and I was blown away by just how amazing and tasty it was. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been juicing with the Nutribullet pro. I am finding just how creative one can be, as there are so many wonderful Nutribullet recipes out there today.

Posted on Updated on

o-JOB-BURNOUT-facebookI attended a panel discussion at a producer’s conference a couple of months ago that gave aspiring producers, directors and entertainment professional’s advice on how to break into the business.

And, they advised, you should not just concentrate on a project that is your “baby,” which can channel all of your creative energy in to that one piece of work.

Confessions of an E-Mail Hoarder

Posted on Updated on

e-mail hoarding

I dumped most of my earthly possessions when I decided to take the plunge and move across the United States. I drove 2,763 miles in about 5 days, making the solo road trip from upstate New York to California quite an adventure. As much as I hold very little emotional attachment to possessions, I was shocked recently when I looked on my phone and realized I had stockpiled more than 23,000 undeleted e-mails between my AOL account and Gmail accounts.
