I had every intention on making a big beautiful bowl of oatmeal this morning but I was craving a green monster. When I woke up I felt extremely tired and my head was slightly pounding. I needed something that required minimal effort and that was cool and energizing to get me going. I decided to mix up my ingredients a bit and I’m so glad I did. This bowl was thicker and more flavorful! I loved it.
Into the blender:
1 large frozen banana
3 frozen strawberries
3 ice cubes
1/3 can pumpkin
1 scoop GREEN Amazing Grass Superfood
1/2 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein
~3/4 TBS Peanut Butter
Cinnamon (SO KEY!)
1/2 cup Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Water
2 handfuls of spinach
I really need a better blender. I find myself constantly shaking the blender and pushing everything down through the process. It takes me way longer to blend the ingredients than it should. I topped it with some Galaxy Vanilla Almond and had a big Jonagold on the side. I’m not sure if I actually wanted that apple but I wanted more crunch after I finished the bowl! The one downside about making smoothies for breakfast is that I always want something solid to go along with it, where as oatmeal fulfills all of my meal texture/flavor requirements. Hopefully I’ll get back to the world’s greatest breakfast tomorrow!
My roommate and I are having a special dinner tonight and I can not wait. Hopefully I’ll be able to sneak a few photos!!
Do you like certain foods when you aren’t feeling up to par (headache/illness/lethargic etc)?
