What do you eat for breakfast?
I alternate what I eat for breakfast almost every day. I really LOVE smoothies, but believe it or not, breakfast is actually my least favorite meal of the day, lol! I know some people LIVE for breakfast food, but to be honest, if chocolate cake was acceptable for breakfast daily, I would prefer to eat that over anything…at ANY time. On second thought, that’s probably the reason why I made an ebook composed of dessert-inspired smoothies! HA! 🙂
Since I can’t eat cake everyday, and I find joy in changing up my morning routine, I find myself either eating a huge fruit plate, a sweet smoothie, or some type of oatmeal for breakfast. Once in a rare while I will eat a breakfast buritto or something such as pancakes or french toast. (By the way, did you see my recent french toast recipe? Oh. My. Drool!)
I have been meaning to post this berry smoothie for a while now; (I film myself making it on Snapchat all the time)! This is my go-to, favorite smoothie to make in the morning! It is packed with nutrients from the berries; it keeps me full from the banana and oatmeal, and it is the perfect balance of sweet and tart.
A few years back I became a berry-groupie.
I read about the crazy, amazing, revitalizing benefits of these gems in Dr Fuhrman’s book, Super Immunity. I highly recommend this book; it is truly life changing! (Believe me, you will want to add berries to your life every day!) 🙂
