What's Cookin' Wednesday, July 3rd
Happy Wednesday a/k/a Hump Day friends! If you are like me, there are many that like the convenience of smoothies for breakfast. I was a big fan but found recently that they were not keeping me full as long as they once did. I really enjoyed the smoothies and they were a great way for me to get my collagen peptides along with some fruits in my diet. Since they were not keeping me full, I decided I needed to find another way to make this happen. Honestly, I didn't research it much to find recipes or anything, I just got creative with what I had on hand. Not your typical recipe as there is no cooking to it, but here's my variation on the smoothie bowl: 1/2 cup of fat free Greek yogurt, half the serving of the frozen fruit that my husband bought me for my smoothies from Costco, 1/3 tablespoon of each ground flaxseed and chia seeds, 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. It isn't overly pretty to look at, but it is filling and tasty. I prepared several for my breakfasts this week. I decided to try something a little different this week and used mango and pineapple instead of the berries. Do you have a favorite breakfast? Is it filling? I would love to hear about it! It's nice to change it up occasionally.
