Fill ‘Er Up, Please!

“I don’t have TIME to make a healthy breakfast…I only have about enough time to throw a pop tart in my purse and run out the door!”

Sound like you, or someone you know? I hear this a lot, and I know all about it because I used to say the same thing! All I had time for in the morning was cereal! However, if you think about it, it takes time to pour the cereal, pour the milk, and sit there and eat the thing!

What if I told you that in 5-10 minutes you could make a meal that is PACKED with nutrients AND suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper tasty!!? Would that make you hit your snooze one LESS time in the morning so that you could start your day with a full tank of gas? If you car was running on empty, you wouldn’t have any option but to stop and take 5 minutes to fill it up, correct? Why do we think that we have the OPTION to run on empty with our BODIES? Take the 5 minutes to fill er up! 😀

I saw this recipe on Doctor Franson’s blog a while back; they make this delicious-ness for the kids in the morning. Immediately, I wanted to try it out. Sure enough, its AMAZING!

Blend an avocado with all-natural apple sauce (organic if you can!) in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy! I sprinkled shredded coconut flakes on top of mine, and Nick wanted assorted nuts. The result?

Nutrient packed SUPER FOOD!

So what we have learned is that at every meal we should ask ourselves the following questions:

Where’s the protein?

Where’s the fat?

Where are the plants?

In the avo-apple goodness we have lots of healthy fat (avocado and coconut flakes or raw nuts), and carbs/plants (apple sauce), but what about the protein?

To make this breakfast a health promoting powerhouse, we made a tasty scramble with pork, black beans, asparagus and spinach!

"Fill er up please!"

This all took about 10 minutes to make, and honestly, it could be even less if prepped the night before. You could DEFINITELY make the avo-apple goodness the night before, which would give you a few precious moments more of sleep 🙂

Treat your body like it’s the only one you’ll ever get (because let’s face it, it IS the only one you’ll ever get!). Fill up that gas tank every morning before you hit the road!

Have a fantastic Tuesday guys 🙂

XOXO,

Jen

    Now THAT looks delicious!

    I had three cage free eggs [hard-baked…still haven’t turned the stove on since I moved in ;o)], a crown of broccoli (roasted in the toaster oven at the same time as the eggs), an organic banana, half an organic orange, and half an organic avocado…chased with two teaspoons of Innate Choice fish oil, of course. ;o)

    Then, for lunch…an AWESOME chopped salad I can’t WAIT to get to!

    I had to show it off…maybe you can see it:

    :o)
