In my journey of discovering fruits I have never tried before I know I’ve been wanting to try nectarines. Alone, they taste so good and paired with orange it’s even more delicious! This orange nectarine smoothie is a creation I conjured up to keep my morning breakfast smoothie routine snazzed-up. I added a scoop of vegan vanilla protein for added protein and it helps me last until my early lunch so my blood sugar doesn’t drop throughout the morning.
I’ve recently discovered a produce market close to my house called Don Victorio’s. Don’t let the size of the store or appearance deter you from exploring all that this store has to offer. Even with it’s small size, Don Victorio’s is loaded with a wide array of fruits and vegetables but most importantly the freshness of the produce is what blew me away. I am getting so sick and tired of buying produce, specifically, herbs and leafy greens, at Publix and if you don’t use it within two days they go bad. I bought a huge bunch of cilantro at Don Victorio’s and it lasted in my fridge for a week before I used it. All of the produce is reasonably priced for the freshness. If you can’t find what you’re looking for the employees are knowledgeable and friendly and will help you find what you need.
