One year…and a delicious Breakfast Smoothie

Last year after the holidays, when all was calm and ritual again, my husband suggested we drink our breakfast.  NO NO not actual alcoholic drinks but juices/smoothies….drinks of that nature!

I have ALWAYS, for as long as I could remember, eaten bread (or some sort of) for breakfast.  I am french after all therefore toast with cheese or pate is part of my DNA.  That being said, I knew my fruit intake was minimal at best.  I love vegetables, I love eating well, I love working out…blah blah blah.  BUT I don’t really care to eat fruits.

So, in order to prove a point….which one I don’t remember.  I decided I could give up my usual breakfast fare for a delicious smoothie.  Believe me when I tell you that it wasn’t easy.  I love bread.  But I did it.  One year ago, I started making smoothies for breakfast.  I guess the old sayin’ that if you do something long or often enough it becomes a habit.  This time, it’s a good and healthy habit.  I love my smoothies!

Note: You could add some green powder, I always forget but Mr. Man loves it.  Also the amount of water is up to you.  You may prefer a thicker smoothie, your pineapple might be extra juicy….who knows.  It’s not brain surgery!

Wishing you all a Healthy 2014 and a fantastic Friday!

Peace and Love
