Exciting – my first post! I am not sure what direction this blog is going to take me but I wanted a place to post my ideas, recipes, thoughts and life. I love to talk about food, cook and bake food and photograph food…so here I am breaking into the blogging world hoping someone will embrace what I have to say.
Now this “recipe” might not be the ideal way for some to start one’s blog off with BUT it captures exactly what this blog is about – natural and real food. Plus, it just happened to be my breakfast this morning. Bear with me as I try and remember to snap photos of my nosh before digging in.
It’s a not-so-warm Saturday here in Denver, and I typically go on a “long run” most Saturday mornings but I decided to cut it shorter than usual since I was so pumped about working on my new blog! Having run 6 miles this morning I needed a quick, recovery breakfast…starting with:
Green Almond Oat Smoothie
1 cup baby spinach (or a handful)
1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/3 cup of GF rolled oats
1 tsp ground flax
1 tsp chia seeds (plus more for sprinkling!)
sprinkle of ground cinnamon
Add all ingredients except extra chia seeds for topping in a blender. Blend baby, blend!
Pour in a glass and top with extra chia seeds, if desired.
I also had two scrambled eggs for breakfast with feta cheese, yum!
*I use the Cuisinart SmartPower Blending/Chopping System or the Magic Bullet for quick and easy serving!
