Good morning! I went to bed dreaming of this pineapple smoothie, so the first thing I did today was stumble into the kitchen and blend it up.
In the blender:
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk
Splash pomegranate juice
1/4 cup frozen pineapple chucks
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
2 scoops protein powder
1/4 cup raw oats
I know raw oats seems like a weird thing to put in a smoothie, but it gives the drink a gritty texture and makes it much, much more filling.
DadHTP passed on this New York Times article to me, and I thought you might enjoy it, too! As Iâ€™ve written about many times before, I find the commercialization of gender in childrenâ€™s toys to be absolutely fascinating.
Some interesting facts from the article:
Hamleyâ€™s (the â€œLondon version of F.A.O. Schwarzâ€) recently got rid of the pink/girls and blue/boys sections in the store and replaced it with a red and white scheme that is organized by interest (i.e. soft toys, outdoor toys), not gender.
Boys raised in â€˜equality for the sexesâ€™ homes are more likely to be nurturing to babies.
Girls with older brothers have better spatial awareness than boys or girls with older sisters.
Children who have opposite-sex friends in their early years have healthier and more stable romantic relationships as teenagers.
Happy reading and HAPPY FRIDAY!
