Breakfast. I am not good at it.
I am very good at making it for other people and making sure they eat. I mean, I make a seriously delicious blueberry pancake, my omelettes are killer and I can pour a sweet bowl of cereal.
For anyone but myself.
My breakfast is usually coffee. And maybe some greek yogurt.
I started working with a new trainer at the gym last week and we discussed my goals and what I want to accomplish over the next six months. In an attempt to get me to break old, and perhaps make some new, habits, she challenged me to eat a proper breakfast all week long.
I decided a smoothie would be what I could stomach and was an easy and fast solution to my breakfast aversion.
Now, don't laugh, but yes, I am about to share a smoothie recipe here.
I don't do recipes, so forgive me if I don't give proper measurements, just use your judgement and stuff whatever fits into your Magic Bullet or whatever you are using to blend up everything.
1/4 cup-ish of pineapple chunks
1/4 cup-ish of orange pieces
1/2 cup or so of milk (I use almond)
1 tablespoon of Hemp Seeds
1 scoop of protein powder of your choice
One giant hand full of spinach - really, put in a whole bunch (especially if you are a bit iron-deficient like I am at the moment.)
If you want it a bit more hearty, add in 1/2 of a banana.
Mix it all up, pour into your favourite mug and drink up.
Cause it's good for you!
Oh, and I am happy to report that I did in fact eat breakfast every day this week!
