The August Break 2013 - Day 1 - Breakfast

 "Breakfast!"  Good morning, everybody.
The sun is up and there's lots of toast and jelly.
~ "Postcard from a Dream" by Poi Dog Pondering
Ah, in my world, at least on weekdays, there is smoothie, not toast and jelly.  I take it on the go, drinking it on the car.  Weekends are more leisurely, yogurt with granola and berries eaten on the back deck.  In the winter, oatmeal.  If I have time, I love to make crepes
There are plenty of recipes out there for smoothies, if you'd like one.  I don't really follow a recipe, my general guideline is:
~ liquid - usually water, but sometimes almond milk, coconut milk, or hemp milk
~ greens (varies)
~ another vegetable (often cucumber)
~ banana
~ another fruit
~ something with fat / protein to fill me up and stay with me through the morning - such as nuts, nut butter, avocado
~ other good stuff, like hemp seeds, chia seeds, ginger

What is your breakfast?
Be well!

  1. Hi - nice to see someone I recognize from Photo Meditations . . . I am also doing the August Break, hoping it encourages me to do some photography every day.

    I am with you on the smoothie thing, I never measure, just throw a lot of good stuff in there and it feels so healthy. :)

  2. Hello! Yes, nice to see someone familiar! Even the internet can be a small world. :-) I bet there are others we "know" participating. So far it has encouraged me to take photos every day, and get back to my blog. A big healthy smoothie is such a great way to start the day. Keep on keepin' on!
