Thought I’d share some trying-to-be-healthy breakfasts I’ve made recently. First up is my morning smoothie.
Here are some examples of what I make – on the left is a Blueberry-Mango smoothie, and on the right is a Mixed Berry & Banana smoothie.
My smoothie must-haves:
|Flaxseed, OJ, Almond Milk, Spinach & Kale cubes, Banana, Berries and Yogurt.
Since I can’t use protein powder (even vegan ones break me out!) I use frozen bananas or mangos as a thickener. I freeze a lot of the ingredients as it makes the smoothie’s consistency nicer – and you don’t have to worry about things tasting off (there’s nothing I hate more than overripe fruit or wilted greens).
I buy pre-washed Kale & Spinach leaves and blend them with a little OJ – I got the idea from this post on the Social Home. You can buy pre-made spinach cubes in the freezer section – but use them at your own discretion. My internet research told me that they may not be safe to use raw since they’re intended for cooking before consumption (unlike frozen berries, which are meant to be eaten raw and are therefore prepared differently).
When I have more time, I like making this omelet (completely inspired by Catalina Su): 2 eggs (1 whole, 1 white only), red onions & turkey breast fried together and topped with Sri Racha. Avocado mashed on the side with lemon juice, kosher salt & garlic powder.
I only wish I had the motivation to make these for breakfast every morning… but I’ll often end up with deli meats on a wholewheat pita and a mug of coffee. Definitely not as healthy!
WEEKEND OUTFITS: I had some family events to attend but it was SO cold…so I planned my outfits around my trusty fleece leggings – so warm & comfy!
Saturday outfit: I bought this New Look dress 3 years ago but have only worn it once, so I layered it over a charcoal grey long-sleeved t-shirt and wore it with fleece leggings and black Old Navy boots.
Sunday outfit: A repetition of my Christmas party outfit: H&M lace dress, grey cardigan & Forever21 necklace.
In between family parties, I ran into the Bay to pick up a new foundation – and spotted these gorgeous Coach bags. I’m really LOVING their Legacy line (I posted about the Penny Shoulder purse earlier) and these mini-Tanner totes are AMAZING! They remind me of the Celine Luggage Nano bag but at a 10th of the price! Aren’t they gorgeous?
