New Favorite Meal:
2 eggs over easy on tops of roasted sweet potatoes and sautéed spinach.😋
This has been my pre-workout meal of choice lately. And, since I roast the sweet potatoes ahead of time, I can whip it up fast, the boys love it too!
Monday power-up 🙌🙌 Acai smoothie! Best to-go breakfast in case you slept in & are running late. It happens 🙄 But don't skip breakfast...lunch is a while away & you need strength to say no to donuts 😉😉 I got you!!

▪2 c power greens, packed (or baby spinach)
▪2 c frozen bluebs
▪1 scoop @sunwarrior vanilla protein powder
▪2 tsp Acai powder

▪optional 2-4 dates for extra sweet
Blend. Pour. Enjoy 😋😋
Loving these “Euro” breakfasts 🙌🏼 Genoa Salami, Scrambled Eggs, @foodforlifebaking Toast, Blackberries, and Cherry Tomatoes. The best breakfasts are often these quick picnic-style breakfasts. With so many different flavors and textures, you leave the table full and satisfied 😌
Everyone is sleeping in on this rainy Monday morning. Thankfully the last thing we did last night before bed time was roll out a double batch of peanut butter protein balls. 😋 Usually these are used for snack and treat purposes, but today? #breakfastisserved
Here is the very rough recipe I use, but I honestly vary it slightly each time I make it based on the ingredients I have on hand. If you're missing a dry ingredient, just sub with some additional oats. For the peanut butter, I usually end up adding a few more tablespoons. You want to make sure all the ingredients will roll together without it becoming too sticky.
1 cup dry oats (I use old-fashioned but quick rolled, or gluten-free also work)
1/2 cup ground flax seed or wheat germ
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (you can toast them, leave them untoasted or sub sweetened flakes but then I would cut back on your honey)
3/4 cup peanut butter (I use creamy natural but anything will work)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or Carob chips
1/4 cup crushed slivered almonds
2 T chia seeds
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions: Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. I prefer to mix the peanut butter, honey and vanilla first and then mix in the dry ingredients but you can honestly just dump every thing at once. Let the mixture chill in the fridge for about thirty minutes. Using your hands, mold them into one inch balls. The kids love to help here (be warned it's messy). Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
