Breakfast of Champions

I’ve been trying to make better food choices. This has been my breakfast on a few mornings. Most days I’ll have just the smoothie. This is great after a workout. (for all those wondering, I quit Insanity and started running instead)

Here’s the dealio-

Breakfast burrito

1 tortilla (preferably wheat)

1 regular scrambled egg sprinkled with Lawry’s seasoned pepper and salt.

4-5 fresh spinach leaves

1/4 cup of Fantastic Dip

*Fantastic Dip Recipe – Thanks Krysty B.

Can of Mexican corn

Can of black beans- drained

Chopped purple onion

Chopped tomato

Chopped avocado

Chopped green pepper

Good Seasons Italian dressing (comes in a packet and mix it with oil and vinegar)

Mix all together & put dressing on it. Best eaten fresh.

Smoothie

My base is always a Bolthouse Farms juice.

I love them because they are all natural and full of vitamins and good stuff. I also found a great sale on them a while back. Buy one get one free. They have lots of varieties and I like to switch it up and try different flavors.

I use 1/4 of this bottle for one smoothie.

I put in a splash of milk.

Ice cubes.

1/2 banana (sometimes a whole)

Frozen berries (usually blueberry or strawberry)

A handful of fresh spinach leaves

Sometimes 3-4 baby carrots

And 1 1/2 scoops of protein powder

So very filling and a great way to start your day!

What about you guys? Do you have some great breakfast to kick start your day? I’d love to hear what it is!
