Ah, breakfast. The best meal of the day. But you know for a long time I was used to eating most of the breakfast foods I loved at for supper. Pancakes, waffles, French toast: growing up I loved having these in the p.m. And how about breakfast? Well…🙂
How good are you guys about eating breakfast? When I was a kid I was terrible at it. I loved cereal, but I usually had it for a snack after school. And if I did have breakfast it was on the weekend while watching cartoons. So most days when I was a kid I got up and didn’t eat until 11:00 or 11:30 at school when they fed us lunch. It’s not that I didn’t have breakfast put in my face. I just had absolutely no desire to eat in the morning. No hunger at all. So I ate a lot of portable Pop Tarts.
I can’t even believe that was me! How could I not have been hungry in the morning? And not hungry for breakfast??! That’s when all the best foods are rolled out. Now in the morning I wake up to my stomach growling. 😀
All of those bad habits of my changed when I was 16 and read an article about how people who eat breakfast are healthier. So I started eating it every morning. And hey, it wasn’t even Fruity Pebbles. (Well…maybe every once in a while it is). I haven’t gone without eating breakfast since then. I turn really hangry real fast if I don’t eat something in the morning.
So if you’re anything like I used to be and you want something quick and easy for breakfast, here is a smoothie for you. And it’s so healthy too. Delicious orange and frozen banana are pulsed together with almond milk and a tablespoon of cashews. Do you guys love putting unsalted nuts in your smoothies? The texture is great. And it’s fun to play around with the different kinds to try different flavors.
This smoothie tastes like sunshine in a glass. It always makes me smile. It’s my go-to breakfast when I’m not in the mood for oatmeal. I hope you like!
