I’ve been trying to reestablish some healthy habits, and one of those habits is eating at home. I don’t really enjoy food in the mornings so I’ve gotten back into the habit of starting each day with a smoothie.
Last week, I tried a few new flavors, and I liked the results.
I made a green smoothie (as I often do) with apple, banana and spinach, and it was amazing!
I also mixed strawberries and blueberries, which might be my new favorite.
I did orange, banana and a little pineapple too, and it tasted like dessert for breakfast.
I’ve also been drinking homemade green juice a lot lately, and I’ve begun craving it, which was totally unexpected. My favorite blend is kale, celery, cucumbers, parsley, cilantro and lemon.
I like bringing it to class because I can drink it at room temperature, and there’s just something about it that satisfies my taste buds.
I still like to chew food, of course, and last week I finally attempted to make quinoa. It was amazing, and it satisfied my hunger all afternoon. I made dressing using strawberries and a mango, and it was pretty outstanding too.
One thing I’ve noticed is that eating at home is much more exciting when I find new foods that I enjoy. Mixing different ingredients in the blender to see how it tastes is fun for me, and I think as long as I’m eating protein packed meals with fruits and veggies, I’m doing pretty well.
I use Greek yogurt in my smoothies to add protein and bulk. Does anyone have any smoothie suggestions for me? I’m always ready to try something new!
