I think I technically was going to cover this LAST week but real life got in the way. I will admit that more and more I am feeling that this blog actually gets in the way of real life, but I am keeping on for now.
1. DIY Frozen Breakfast Burritos
During the work week, I eat my breakfast at my office. 99% of the time, I am making some oatmeal. I started to get tired of oatmeal, no matter how many concoctions I was getting good at making with it. So I gave the frozen breakfast burritos a try. One night I scrambled a bunch of eggs, divided them among several flour tortillas, added some black beans and salsa to each, wrapped them and put them in a big ziploc bag.
It has been a nice change of pace since oatmeal. I also have been having them as a mid-morning snack. Unfortunately I ate my last one yesterday so back to the stove top.
What do YOU eat for breakfast?
2. Green Smoothies
My daughter loves anything that is called a smoothie. While she used to be great about eating greens, she has lately gone on a greens strike. I swore I would NEVER do this (famous last words) but I have succumbed to the hiding of the greens. I have been making green smoothies for her after swim lessons as a "treat". That girl will suck down 1/2 - 3/4 of a blender full of smoothie. For real.
I haven't really followed any recipe - although here is an example of a big list. I basically have been throwing stuff in a blender, trial and error. Our favorite combo is coconut greek yogurt + greens (kale or spinach) + pineapple + banana and a splash of milk.
Do you make smoothies? What combos do you like?
