How thrilled are you that I am sharing my current favorite breakfast? I know you're hanging onto the edge of your seat, so without further ado, may I present:
Cinnamon/Raisin Oatmeal and a green fruit smoothie!
Don't ask me why, but as I was beginning to learn to discern what my bod wanted to start the day with a la Geneen Roth, I stumbled upon a simple bowl of whole grain oatmeal. It keeps me soooo full, and it tastes like nectar from the gods when I add a touch of cinnamon, milk and some sugar or honey.
And yes, this is a green smoothie, even though it looks deep purple. What makes it green is the addition of 5 oz of baby spinich....a terrific and tasty way to get a serving of greens in the morning. I make enough for two servings. The second serving I save for lunch or dinner. And no, you don't taste the spinich.
Mustard greens are a different story.
Here's my recipe, a take-off from Dr. Fuhrman's recipe in:
In food processor or powerful blender blend til well combined:
4 oz. Knudsen's Just Tart Cherry or Just Cranberry juice
4 oz. water
5 oz. baby spinich
1 packet stevia
1 tsp Bragg's raw apple cider vinegar
1 TBLS raw nut or seed butter (cashew is my fave!)
6-8oz frozen blueberries (or dark sweet cherries)
To make this more a dessert, only use 4 oz liquid, and add 2 TBLS high quality unsweetened cocoa powder.
It really is for yum, and I've heard drinking your greens like this makes it 500% more assimilatable as it's already pre-digested, so to speak. Packs a punch, for sure.
And of course, it tastes better in a pretty goblet with a fun straw :)
