Month 2: Eat breakfast

It's February, and you know what that means? A new healthy eating goal! Last month, we focused on simply reducing the number of times we ate out. How did you do? Did you meet your goal?

This month we are going to specificially focus on breakfast. They say it's the most important meal of the day. Not only does this mean that you should not skip breakfast, but it means that you should have a good breakfast. No faux food that enters your car through a window. No time? Have a smoothie! I discovered smoothies more than twenty years ago when we lived in Hawaii. At that time, I made this smoothie with pineapple juice. Today I usually use my homemade goat milk yogurt.

This recipe is incredibly easy to use for one, two, or three servings. Just put everything in the blender, and blend!

For each serving, pour in one cup of plain yogurt
(This is two cups because I'm making two servings.)

Add one banana for each serving.

Add about 10 frozen strawberries for each serving.

Normally I'll also throw in a tablespoon of flax seeds, but I ran out yesterday! If you're used to sweet things, you might want to add a little honey or maple syrup, but I love it with no added sweetener.

Blend!


And once it's blended, drink up!

What are some of your favorite smoothie combinations?

  1. I'll make smoothies with just water and frozen fruit in order to pack in some of my "5 a day" recommendation easier. More often I've been adding greens to those fruit smoothies, too, so I get even more nutrients. If I'm making a smoothie that is creamy and dairy-like, peanut butter and banana is one of my favorites.
