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.

  1. I love it...a good reminder that what once worked may not always work. Constantly adjust and accommodate the changes in our bodies and lives!

    1. While not a big fan of change, I can't eat the same thing everyday or I get bored and I go WAY off plan!

  2. I am very regimented: I have one egg with either bacon, toast or cheese. OR, if time is a crunch, like today, than a breakfast bar. I also drink coffee, but I will say that I stay filled to lunch time!

    1. I enjoy changing it up from time to time, but probably tomorrow, I'll have 2 poached eggs and 1 piece of toast.
