Why Not Rather Be Wronged?

Before I let you get into this, Simply Pixie is on FB! Click here!

Also, this post is heavily dipped in religion, but even if you're not religious, I'd really love it if you read it and left me with your thoughts. The issue of being wronged has an impact on everyone, after all. 


I was going through a stash of essays, and absentmindedly clicked on one and scanned it over. One line caught my attention: 

“Why not rather be wronged?”

I stopped. My mind began to go off on a tangent. Why indeed. Why wouldn’t we rather be wronged? The simple answer would be: we hate being wronged. And wrong. Before we even tackle that question in seriousness, we need some context.

Avocado Shake

I've been just a little obsessed with avocados lately. They're smooth, creamy, so healthy and make one amazing shake. I like making this with whole, organic milk but it also works great with nut milks. Make it with raw honey, which is a fantastically healthy sweetener (but not too much), throw in some coconut oil for another healthy boost and indulge yourself in the luxuriously rich, milkshake-like creaminess. Try it for yourself:

Avocado Shake

Servings: 2
Preparation Time: 5 minutes

1 avocado
1 1/2 - 2 cups milk (adjust to desired consistency)
1-2 tablespoons raw honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5-10 ice cubes, to taste
1-4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (optional)

Remove pit and scoop avocado flesh out into a blender. Add remaining ingredients except for coconut oil and begin blending while pouring coconut oil in a steady stream.

Fun fact: avocado shakes are popular in Brazil.

What do you like to put in your smoothies?
