And here's the birthday princess with her newly adorned cake-some Dora toys. That was her personal touch. Silly girl.

I wanted to get a shot of how gorgeously pink it was, but that little chica chugged it down so fast, I didn't have a chance!
I was actually surprised she liked it so much, since it was a bit too tart for me.
Ingredients: plums, apples, oranges, banana, cherry, pink guava, hibiscus, cranberry, green tea extract, rose hips, vitamin E, vitamin C and ferrous sulfate(iron).
So, I guess from now on it will be a twice a week treat that can be sent to school in her lunchbox.

This is my personal bowl of earthy goodness.
I've got a bit of broccoli,cauliflower,yellow squash,sweet potato,brussel sprouts,carrots,baby red potatoes, and garlic.
When it was all ready to eat, I topped it off with a little bit of nutritional yeast-a great source of B vitamins for us vegans.
There are a lot more things I was planning on throwing in there(bell peppers, onions,parsnips, &beets,) but ran out of room....my roasting pan is only so big :)
I may just whip up some gluten free pumpkin muffins a little later.
As a mom of a nearly 6 year old daughter, who has already been concerned with "looking pretty" when a picture is taken, I'm very diligent about letting her know she's beautiful the way she is, because of WHO she is.
This world around us bombards us with images of airbrushed unrealistic "perfection." It's sad.
I really wish this song would have been around when I was growing up....I think it would have prevented me from some pretty self-destructive attitudes and behaviors.
I pray that all of you with little girls will listen to this song, WITH your daughter and talk about it, too.
My new plan is to print out these lyrics and tape them to her bedroom door, so that she grows up learning these lyrics and keeping them in her heart.
