Breakfast Smoothie Bowl

IMG_20170207_120305.jpg

i don’t eat breakfast that often. Usually this is due to the fact that I have gotten accustomed to waking up early to go to a baking job. I am not hungry or awake fully at 5 or 6 in the morning. This set me into a schedule where I ate whenever I got off work in the afternoons. Therefore the lack of breakfast.

Now though I have my own schedule. This opens me up to exploring the realm of breakfast and breakfast meals.

Every other day Zach and I wake up to walk our dog. I typically do my kettlebells after this. Usually after an active morning, I am not hungry for super hearty food. I want something simple and easy to make, that is lighter and fresher. I have had it on my list to play with some smoothie bowls, and I will definitely be expanding on this in the future, but this was a great start. It was just what I needed after my kettlebells and to get going on my creative work for the rest of the day. Plus it’s pretty!

Sweet Summer Smoothie

031

I admit I am not big on juicing, I believe in thermagenics Let your body do work to digest your food. Take in all the nutrients. But sometimes, especially in the summer when it’s a hot day and I get off the bike (I’ve recently stopped driving my car and have picked up the biking and hiking to commute) I just want something refreshingly cool and easy to throw in a blender. I want t a nice smoothie. My first bike outing took me to my friend Chelsey’s house. For some reason I went along with her idea that we could just take a quick stroll down to the graveyard to pick some blackberries. Seven plus miles we pulled back into the driveway, nice and sweaty with our basically ripe berries. I’m hungry, but food does not sound appealing. Let’s make a smoothie. A few minutes later we each had a cool smoothie in hand, out in her Jeep to see how far we had trekked. A great afternoon of bonding, exercise, and adventure.

  • 1/4 cup raw grass-fed yogurt or kefir Continue reading “Sweet Summer Smoothie”
