Breakfast Of Champions


This is one of my new favorite breakfast items. I can't believe that I enjoy this shake or smoothie or whatever it is more than my past favorite breakfast item of oats. I loved oats! I am now choosing a green drink each morning instead because I love it more than the oats! No one is more surprised than I at this change in breakfast love.

The drink above is 1 frozen banana, 1 peach, 1 handful of baby lettuces, 1 handful of spinach, 5 leaves of kale and a tablespoon of ground flax. It tastes light, fresh and amazing. Really. I feel fabulous drinking this. I can't believe it. It's a great pre run drink-chock full of good carbohydrates and vitamins.

Yesterday I had an avocado, kale, collards, spinach, mango and pineapple with flax seeds blended to perfection. Yum. It's quick and easy. If it is too thick to drink I add a cup of water and blend.

I'm no longer afraid of fats. I might eat 1 or 2 avocado a day as well as using olive oil in my salads and I am eating plenty of nuts and seeds. This rocks.

Good to hear you're over the fear of fats, but "avocado, kale, mango and flax" actually made me gag when I read it. Individually, I might eat all of those in a day, but together? Ick.

That looks delicious! I think people would be amazed at how great they taste. I am a little sad the husband and daughter finally tasted my green concoctions because now I have to share.

Truly amazing this raw, vegan thing.

Natural fats are indeed healthy and tasty. I have a bowl of chopped almonds and walnuts, with berries or raisins, all swimming in almond milk. Delicious! If you eat a low-carb diet, fear not the fats!!
