With my new job, I've had a little bit more time in the mornings this week. This is a great thing, because I love mornings, and I love having a lot of time to do things in the morning. So I decided to make smoothies for breakfast this week.
For pretty much my entire working career I've had to be out of the house by 6:30 or 7:00 a.m. every day. Sometimes earlier! I've never had time to eat anything other than toast and cereal for breakfast; or if I wanted something hot, I made it the night before, microwaved it two seconds before walking out the door and ate in the car!
Anyway, I was really excited to have time to make a smoothie and actually enjoy eating breakfast at our breakfast nook in the kitchen.
This is the smoothie I made one day, and the rest of the days were a variation of the same.
1 apple, cored and sliced
1 1/2 cups chopped kale
1/2 -1 cup spinach
1 1/2 cups organic apple juice
Add ice and blend some more. Drink up!
