Breakfast is not something I have a lot of time for. Often times I will skip it completely. I know... it's very bad. Then I arrive at the salon or studio (latte in hand) and I feel faint. It's not fun, it's actually scary and embarrassing. "Sorry I passed out. It's just that I'm malnourished." Anyone who follows this blog will know I am not a gym bunny. I'm not vegan, vegetarian, a doctor, nurse or health nut. But if by noon, I haven't eaten... I will be borderline postal. Noon is when the rage takes over. The slightest thing could throw me. Do you talk with a smack? I could kill you for that... unless you (have no manners) and are carrying a snack.
I'm not a picky eater. I love food. *Except for raisins* You should also know that I hate raisins. Dead grapes with sand like textures. Who needs them?! It's that I need to improve my time management skills. And yet oddly enough, it wasn't until my morkie, Ava Bean took sick that I started researching not only what's in our food but what our bodies need in order to survive and function properly. Now before you trolls blow up my Instagram with comments about how _____ stupid I am.
I'm not a dietician. And I am not telling you how to live your life. I'm just a girl, standing in front of a blender... asking it to feed her. And this, is an update of what I've beanDrinking. Smoothies!
I'm more of a savoury than sweet eater so the ingredients I chose lean towards a citrusy/sour side of things. Feel free to change it up according to your needs and preferences!
