Fruit and Kale Breakfast Smoothie

For those of you on the go like I am most mornings, there's nothing quite like a smoothie to get things started - especially when it's packed full of great ingredients and tastes as wonderful as this one does!

Fresh fruit, your choice of milk, nutrient rich kale, yogurt, and flax seed are blended together to make this a breakfast for champions!

Here's the recipe... I hope you'll try it and enjoy!

  1. I am on the health bandwagon as well...I am working towards eating better, with using brown rice, whole grains, fruit and veggies and proper portion sizes when it comes to meat. I actually had 2 poached eggs with 3 slices of turkey bacon and 2 slices ww toast for dinner last night! Then I proceeded to eat a small bowl of ice cream...baby steps...lol...I have a goal of going to the gym 3 times a week right now and try to do some kind of exercise on the weekend which is way more than I was doing before which was nothing! I have to fit nicely into my bathing suit by the end of January as we are going to Cuba or Cancun havent decided which, but all I know is that I have to look better than I do if I expect to get on that beach!!

  2. How exciting!! We can be on our health kicks together - that way when we do finally meet we'll be both looking even more fabulous than we do already!!!

    Night time after dinner is the toughest. I've been using a trick I learned watching intervention to combat false hunger. I figure if it can work for a heroin addict it can work for me... I tell myself, "That's just the addiction talking, it wants to be fed. If you don't feed it you will kill it so it's fighting back right now." Psychologically that little technique works well for me. Maybe I'll blog about it...
