This weekend I decided to try something different for breakfast instead of the normal oats. We keep our house at 74 degrees (which I looooove), but it gets a little toasty in my bedroom at night. So I wanted something cool and refreshing in the morning. Immediately I knew I wanted to try a green monster! I have them for "snacks" almost everyday, but I was anxious to see how this filled me up for brekkie (I had lots of yard work to do - wahoo!). I added almond butter for the first time, hoping that would help.
In the mix:
- Handful (or two) of kale leaves
- 1/3 cup vanilla non-fat yogurt
- 1 banana
- 4 or 5 strawberries
- 1 tablespoon ground flax
- 1 1/2 tablespoons almond butter
- handful of ice cubes
You caught me! I've always been a bowl/beater (and I guess now blender?) licker. I want to get every last drop of this stuff!!
How did it hold me over?
Pretty well, I'd say! I was hungry about 3-4 hours later, which is about how I am with my oats in the morning.
Edited to add:
Today I am thankful for:
- Hanging out with my girls tonight.
- Not a lot of traffic coming into work!
