~ Food Has Power ~
Each day, we are working to incorporate GREEN into our breakfast. Here are a bunch of possible green breakfast foods to include!
My most simple smoothie recipe is 2 cups of organic, baby spinach + 2 cups of frozen fruit in the blender with water. Smoothies are the easiest way for us to incorporate many greens, as I can vary the greens and vary the fruit! You can add a bit of sweetener, honey or pure maple syrup, as needed. Or use 100% juice or fresh juice for the liquid.
Often, I'll use my herbal infusions as the liquid. And I'll freeze any extra smoothie - flat in a gallon-size Ziploc. This provides a quick frozen 'mixed juice' to toss in the blender in the afternoon as a Pick-Me-Up!
1/4 teaspoon herbs or spices (cinnamon, cayenne, turmeric, kelp, ginger, etc.)
(optional) sweetener (honey, maple syrup)
1/4 cup of whole food probiotics (kefir, kombucha, yogurt)
