Breakfast Smoothie

I will be straight with you!  I am not a smoothie person.  Not into it!  Just not my thing!  So, I was slowly enticed, just watching Grannie, as always, do her own thang; though, I still wouldn't bite!  Then, one morning, I was rushing about because, well, I just don't like being late for anything.  I like to rise early enough to sit and have a quiet cup of Cafe Viennese, indulge in my artistry, write a little and even prepare, sit down and enjoy my breakfast; yes, even on a weekday!  But, this particular morning, there was no time and I fretted that I might have to settle for grabbing a fast food breakfast sandwich.  When Grannie reminds me of her Breakfast Smoothie, Momi, just drink this, and it will hold you for hoursIt's the perfect on-the-go meal.

Truly, I thought, only to appease her, I did drink it down and rushed out the door!  Moving so fast at work that entire morning, it was noon, before I realized that I never even stopped to think about that fast food breakfast sandwich.  From then on, I was sold!

Grannie's Prescription for a Healthy Breakfast When You're On The Move!

Now, y'all know, I like to eat!  I love good food, fresh, whole meals, meat, bread (My Buttermilk Slap Biscuits), etc.  I want to see some excitement on my plate!  So, no, I am not a nuts and seeds person!  So, I get you; I understand, because clearly there is nothing appetizing about nuts and seeds; but, here's the thing:  It's healthy, nourishing, fast, and truly what got me, it holds me - to my next meal 4-5 hours later!

Grannie whips it up each morning in her hard-working Vitamix and sometimes she uses the Bullet for smaller servings.  Let me tell you, Grannie wears that Vitamix out!  Do you hear me!  But, I enjoy watching Grannie and her discipline and determination to Righting Her Own Natural Remedies for Her Own Good Health.  It has greatly influenced my eating habits and for this, I am eternally grateful for My Grannie!

Grannie always says, Make it your own!  Put in your breakfast smoothie the things you need (for nourishment) along with the things you like (for flavor).  Grannie puts nuts (Pecans, Almonds, Pistachios, Brazil Nuts), seeds (Flax, Sesame, Chia), beans (Lentils, Black Beans, Chick Peas), eggs, coconut milk, molasses, prunes and, for our tastes, she adds a little coffee, which gives it a richness, I particularly enjoy.  But again, do you!  That way, you'll not only enjoy the flavor, but your body will be rewarded with healthy nourishment, without all the chemicals, not to mention, you feel full for a good four hours - a natural health remedy!

What's huge for me, I find that when I drink my daily smoothies (Fruit, Breakfast, Green & Bean Smoothies), I'm not hungry; so, I most often won't be tempted to eat the too sweet or twoo salty snacks (cookies, chips, donuts, etc.).  Yes, I still eat whole meals and I still enjoy snacking; but, I find myself making healthier choices - because I am not always hungry, like I used to be!   And when I began to see subtle weight loss, smoother bowel movement, feeling lighter, clearer skin, etc., I began asking Grannie for her Breakfast (and other) Smoothies.  Grannie makes a Fresh Ginger drink my daughter particularly likes.  See Grannie's Tonics & other Smoothies.  I went from grabbing her breakfast smoothie only when I was in a rush, to now, I have one everyday (week) day.  Side note, I like mine cold (like a milkshake) and Grannie likes her hot (like cereal).  Again, do you!
