Good evening friends!
About a month ago, I decided I wanted to have a more vegetarian focused diet. As in, your homegirl is trying to cut out eating meat daily. I don't know the proper term for what I'm doing, let's just call it "eating healthy."
Essentially, I'm looking to eat more fruits and veggies; switch out milk from cows to soy milk (and its cousins like oat milk and coconut milk), and eliminate red meat altogether. I've even found myself not missing bacon. *gasps while clutching invisible pearls*
The other crazy thing is, although I still have my "give me sweets or give me death" moments, I don't put three pounds of sugar in my coffee anymore if any.
So, what do I enjoy? Smoothies!
I love starting my day with a smoothie because I hate making breakfast. I love shopping for the ingredients and being challenged to use strong veggie tastes, like kale or beets, to make something delicious. Or, being challenged to not use a common ingredient found in smoothies, like a banana! I'm thinking of you, Kayla!
Below, I have included the recipe for Oat N' Berrywood. It's a smoothie that gives you sweet, then oats, and then that sweetness flirts with you again.
I want to give you a disclaimer that although the short-handed recipe can be seen in the photo the specifics, with links, are under it! Also, you can buy all these items at my favorite store, Target.
