Avocado Butter Smoothie

This post will largely deviate from the usual  material I put out there. I want to share s recipe I created that’s inspired by one of my favorite drinks from a local health shop.

It’s my spin on the Avocado Butter Smoothie, so here’s what you need to make one: 

-1 avocado

-1 cup of ice

-2 bananas 

-1 tablespoon agave syrup

-1 tablespoon peanut butter (optional)

-1 cup of spinach 

Prepare the aforementioned ingredients and place them in a blender. Blend for 3-5 minutes or until thick, smoothie-like texture is achieved. And voila! Healthy, delicious drink. This recipe generally makes 2-4 servings. Enjoy!

Here’s what the finished product should look like:

Presenting an Avocado Butter Smoothie made by yours truly! (Inspired by a drink concocted in Arlington, VA.) If you're looking to get more energy, lose weight, or eat healthy, having a diet rich in avocado/omega 3 is the ticket. I'm a Californian, so by default, I'm an avocado aficionado–you can be too! What you'll need to make it: 1 avocado . 1 cup of ice . 2 bananas . 1 tablespoon agave syrup . 1 tablespoon peanut butter (optional) . 1 cup of spinach . A blender And voila!

WOS Article: CA Fish & Game Commission Betrays Sportsmen

Below is an excerpt:

In response to an L.A. Times investigation into the California Fish & Game Commission, local groups, like a Safari Club International chapter, have called for greater accountability and transparency.  

A blistering report from the L.A. Times found that the California Fish & Game Commission betrayed anglers, hunters, and marksmen in the Golden State. As a result of this report, local hunting groups, including the Orange County chapter of Safari Club International, have lambasted the commission for betraying outdoor enthusiasts in the state.

“The L.A. Times has turned the lights on to reveal a government commission that is totally out of control and operating without any checks and balances,” said Lisa McNamee, past president of Safari Club International’s Orange County chapter, in a press release.

“It calls into question virtually every decision the Fish and Game Commission has made over the last several years…It’s outrageous that commissioners have been handing checks to lobbyists…and voting on matters for which they have a blatant conflict of interest…This is a tremendous disservice to all Californians and an affront to good, clean and responsible government.”

Resurgent: Cuba Ain’t Glamorous

Below is an excerpt:

Communist Cuba is supposedly the hottest fashion destination this year.

Fashion powerhouses like Chanel have staked out the tyrannical tropical island to showcase the latest in fashion. As a result, fashionistas are looking to break into Havana this spring.

Who knew that a communist country could be so chic with its omnipresent poverty, human rights abuses, and tyranny?

Renowned Chanel fashion designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld, 82, has chosen the so-called “Rome of the Caribbean” for its “cultural richness” and newfound “openness” to showcase his 2017 Cruise Collection Show on May 3, 2016.

Hello dear readers!

Yesterday was my 25th birthday–an occasion marked by warm spring weather, crazy D.C. traffic, surprise Supreme Court nomination, and other interesting news. Despite the tumultuous nature of March 16th, I had a wonderful birthday celebration thanks to family, friends, coworkers, and other wonderful folks. (Fun fact: I share a birthday with rapper Flavor Flav, actor Victor Garber, and Founding Father James Madison. Pretty neat!)

Here are some thoughtful messages I received yesterday from friends and fellow activists in conservative politics and outdoor industry, which were totally unexpected and so kind:

Way to go @gabriella_hoffman! Hope you love it and it serves you well! #Repost from @gabriella_hoffman using @RepostRegramApp – Today is my 25th birthday. So how do I celebrate this milestone?

Thanks for the incredible gift, dad! 🔫🎉 And thank you to the guys over at @novafirearms!

Here are some pics from my birthday dinner celebration with some of my closest dear friends here in Washington, D.C. Friends like these really make me who I am. So blessed for them!

Thank you for the kind notes, messages, tweets, Facebook posts, texts, and phone calls, everyone! I felt especially grateful to feel loved and appreciated. Without everyone, I wouldn’t be doing what I do.

Thank you, and God bless! I promise to make my 25th year on Earth the best one yet.:)
