My smoothies are similar most days, but I do make sure to rotate the greens I use. Here is what my basic smoothie looks like:
- A small banana (or half a banana)
- Plenty of greens (spinach, kale, Swiss chard, etc.)
- Hemp seeds
- Frozen fruit (peaches, strawberries, blueberries, mango, etc.)
- A little stevia, if I use little fruit
Last month, Jessie at Happiness in Health posted about a breakfast she had on a trip to Switzerland and that had become a favorite of hers: Bircher Muesli. It’s basically a version of overnight oats, something I have been meaning to make for quite a while. I decided to make the Bircher muesli one day, and we loved it. Jessie has measurements on her blog (as well as some of the muesli’s history), but I basically just poured some old-fashioned rolled oats in a bowl and topped the oats with some milk and yogurt. The mixture had quite a bit of liquid. By the next morning a lot of the liquid was absorbed, but the muesli was still quite liquid.
I added banana slices, strawberries, and walnuts. I believe apple, banana, and pineapple are more traditional additions.
We had a fun weekend filled with swimming, soccer, and a sleepover.
We also explored a small bamboo forest, with many different types of bamboo from all over the world.
The kid also got to have some fun in a small water pool in a giant bubble at a local arts festival.
Questions: What do you usually have for breakfast? Do you ever have overnight oats for breakfast? What’s your favorite breakfast? What was the highlight of your weekend?
