I started 2014 by turning 30! I thought to myself I really need to start taking better care of myself in my 30’s, more than I ever did in my 20’s and especially after just having two babies back to back. I went back to running every week, getting some much needed fresh air and exercise. I made little goals that were achievable like drinking more water. After getting my CitrusZinger, it really has helped me drink a lot more.
I have never been a fan of breakfast unless of course it’s for dinner. lol I don’t mind scramble eggs on toast or a breakfast burrito for my dinner these days. But to get up at 7:30 and eat a hearty meal isn’t how I like to start my day. Instead I prefer to have my coffee while I feed the kids and then about 10:00 have my smoothie. There are so many different fruits and vegetables you can throw in this but for today I will share you the one I had this morning.
- 1 cup Freshly Halved Strawberries
- 1 cup Frozen Blueberries
- 3/4 cup Natural Fat Free Plain Yogurt (or flavored)
- 1 Mini Banana
- 1/2 cup Cold Water
- 1 large Handful of Baby Spinach Leaves
- 1 large Handful of Fresh Kale
- In a large blender put cold water and yogurt in first
- Add your spinach, kale, and strawberries
- Pulse a few times
- Add the rest of your ingredients
- Blend smooth
- If you add frozen blueberries or ice first some blenders get jammed. Always put liquids in first to help blend smooth.
Spinach & Kale Breakfast Smoothie
I pour my smoothie in my pink Starbucks straw cup so I can carry it around the house while I am doing the morning chores.
It’s a great way to give my metabolism a kick start and it’s packed with nutrients. Sometimes I even add carrots. The berries take away any taste of spinach and kale so it’s just like having a berry smoothie but more healthy. The color isn’t pretty but once you get over that you will love starting your day with one. It really helped me lose that last bit of baby weight I had and now keeps me on my health mission.
It’s no secret most of us aren’t good to our bodies in our twenties but in our thirties there comes a time we need to be a little more aware of what we put in our mouths. Less fast food and more vegetables!
