Here’s a healthy breakfast to start the day.
Fresh grilled salmon (leftover from dinner)
Green smoothie *
Local, fresh blueberries
Coffee with almond milk
*Green smoothie recipe
2 cups Organic Girl Super Greens! (red & green Swiss chard, tat soi, argula & spinach)
1/3 large apple
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp slivered almonds
1 tbsp Zante currants
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
I sometimes add 1-2 tbsp of almond butter, some Italian parsley, avocado, walnuts, pine nuts. It depends on what is in my pantry. The vital ingredients are the greens and chia seeds. Right off the bat, I have eaten some greens and chia which provide a storehouse of nutrients.
I add an apple or banana for sweetness and nuts or peanut butter for protein.
A liquid is needed to blend everything. I use unsweetened almond milk but you could use yogurt with a little water or?
Organic Girl packages several varieties of greens. I always choose dark greens such as spinach and chard.
As this is a rather large breakfast, I save part of the berries and a glass of the smoothie for a snack.
Right now, we have so much fresh salmon in the grocery stores. So, I eat salmon often! À la mode de Marie Antoinette…let them eat salmon!
I set the table and enjoy breakfast with no distractions.
I used to watch the news which was not a good idea!
I find that even a podcast takes my mind off the food.
I want to enjoy every bite and sip and stay in the moment.
It is nice to look outside my window and see the occasional walker.
It’s all part of my plan to eat healthier, eat slowly, eat less, and be mindful.
Have a wonderful day!
