Mint Chip Smoothie


2013/03/05 by nikkiledford

I’ve really been into these smoothies lately. Usually I shy away from them because I generally don’t like to drink my food. I love food. I love eating. So drinking usually leaves me feeling a bit unsatisfied. But I can to this realization that drinking a smoothie usually means that I get to have breakfast twice… and I LOOOVE breakfast. So I’ll have my smoothie in the morning (before yoga) and then for lunch I will usually make my “breakfast” eggs, bacon, etc… It’s pretty awesome. I feel like I’ve tricked the universe.

If you think that’s sneaky, just wait till you make this smoothie. Not only does it suffice for a breakfast food, but it’s also like eating dessert. WHAAAAT?! Seriously. Dessert and Breakfast in one. So sneaky.

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
