This is my last day of my food journal! It’s been fun, and I may do this again in the summer! It will be interesting to see how I’ll be incorporating food from our garden into our meals!
On to breakfast!
I was noticing that I barely ate any fruit yesterday, so my goal was to make sure to include more fruit into my day. So, while I’m focusing on fruit, the girls, however, had…. cocoa-oats!!!… again!!! Seriously, this stuff is awesome. It’s like serving up peanut butter chocolate cake batter, but it’s healthy!
Here’s my breakfast. It’s my fruit smoothie. It was filling, and it kept my belly happy until about noon… Then, I really wanted to eat!!! I think I added too much water to it this morning, because it made about three glasses worth. I drank it all happily.
Really, it’s not too exciting. I had a half an apple for my snack. See, I’m a conscious eater!… More fruit!
For the girls I made them a chocolate peanut butter shake. It’s what I call, “The Ultimate Chocolate Shake”. Look, this is not your mama’s Carnation Instant Breakfast. This is real food. It’s healthy with no sugar or preservatives and it’s rich and creamy and kid approved. What more could a mom want… What more would you want. Here’s my recipe. Try it! You’ll like it!
Ultimate Chocolate Shake
1/3 cup raw cashews
I make this shake in my Vitamix. It does an excellent job of blending everything into a creamy smooth shake. If you don’t own a high powered blender, you may need to soak your cashews for an hour or two.
