Greensicle Smoothie

Greensicle Smoothie

Here’s an easy and quick breakfast or snack to help you get through your day. My son doesn’t like leafy greens, so I’ve been sneaking them into his diet but using smoothies. So far, it’s working. We typically have smoothies with hard boiled eggs for breakfast.

What I Used:
1/2 cup of Water
1/2 cup of Almond or Coconut Milk
1 handful of Spinach
1 handful of baby Kale
1 cup of sliced Strawberries
1/2 of Mango
1 Banana (peeled and then frozen for best results)

What I Did:
1) Placed my water, coconut milk, spinach and kale in the blender and mixed until all the leafy greens were mixed well with the liquids.

2) Added all the fruits (except for the bananas) and blended some more until I couldn’t see any chunks.

3) Last, I added the frozen banana and blended until smooth.

If you decide not to freeze your banana but want your smoothie nice and cold. You can also use ice instead of the water. This may result in needed more almond or coconut milk. Hope you like!

Chicken & Broccoli Scramble

I’ve been working on my meal prepping when I came up on this little number I had for breakfast (but it could easily become a lunch option).

What I Used:

  • Left over chicken breast from the night before (which I chopped into smaller pieces)
  • Left over broccoli
  • 1 egg
  • chopped onions
  • pepper

I placed the chopped onions in a pan/skillet with a little bit of olive oil and seasoned with pepper. I then added my left overs to heat them up a bit. Once I felt everything was good to go, I added the egg and scrambled and mixed everything up. After the egg was cooked, I removed from the heat. As a side, a full apple and almonds were added. This was one of my paleo/zone (zoleo) meals for the day.

Enjoy!

Quick Breakfast

It’s no secret, I hate breakfast. I’m not hungry when I wake up and it usually takes a few hours before I actually get hungry. So this is my new go to breakfast until I find something else fast to make.

What I Used:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • bell peppers
  • cliantro

Cook an egg your favorite way, mine is fried over hard. I had some bell pepper left over from the night before, threw it in my skillet once I removed my egg. After letting the bell pepper heat up a bit I added a handful of spinach with my seasoning. Once I was done, I tossed it all in a bowl and cut up some cliantro and added it on top. Tadaaaaa… done. Took me about 5 mins to prep and another 5 to cook.
