  1. 3kids2cats1divorce – Middle aged, stay at home mom to three teenagers, with two fat house cats lounging about. Estranged spouse has moved out to have a midlife crisis. I'm figuring out who I am, how to be a single mom, and looking for a job after 18 years at home raising kids. The kids and cats just want to be fed. Update January 2015: My estranged husband is now almost my ex-husband, just waiting for the judge to sign the papers. I've gone back to college and my youngest kid has started high school, which my local school board has deemed appropriate to start at 7-frickin'-o'clock in the morning. It's been almost three years since the midlife crisis blew up my family and I'm finally seeing the light at the end of that very long tunnel.

    Hey there! I got this book and am madly trying smoothie recipes every day (seriously yum!). I’ve got a question about flax seed. Should I buy ground flax seed for smoothies or does it even mater (ground v. whole)? I’ve been using chia seeds, because I’ve got a bag, but was stumped when I went to Amazon for flax seed. Thanks!

    1. So glad you’re enjoying them! On the flax, it doesn’t really matter but ground is preferable so that it’s easier to digest (the seeds are too small for a blender to grind fully). Plus, you can then use it for baking, cereal, etc.

      Would you be willing to put up a review of the book on amazon! There isn’t one yet and it certainly helps increase people’s confidence. Especially when I’m telling them to put spinach in their smoothies!:)
