HI SISTERS! After much advice from Dad, I started to make smoothies in the morning. The first one was terrible! But after some practice, I’ve started to make a lot of progress! This morning, I tried out this:
CARROT GINGER SMOOTHIE
- 1/2 a carrot, chopped into small pieces (Large carrot – might be 1 or 2 whole carrots, or handful of baby carrots)
- 1 inch piece of ginger, chopped into small pieces (can be more if you like the flavor)
- 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of green tea (cold) – this can be substituted with just water or juice, etc.
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 tbsp honey (optional)
Blend together and enjoy!
It’s easy- you get a grater, and you grate the strawberry, stir the mixture a bit, and you have a puree 😀 so awesome!
Technically it’s a strawberry-OJ (you know I like the simply brand :)-greek yogurt-honey smoothie!
I used frozen strawberries to have a nice and thick smoothie, and used the OJ to thin it out. The OJ i used has mango in it, either is OK i think 😀
Toss in around 5 strawberries for 1 and 1/2 cups of smoothie. Add in a little bit of OJ, and 3-4 REGULAR spoons of greek yogurt. Toss in lots of honey, as the greek yogurt is tart, and the strawberries might not be sweetened.
Yup, you heard me! I made my first omelette yesterday for brunch. It was the typical fold-over omelette. Don’t want to get too ambitious! For filling, I put in chopped onion before cooking the omelette in the pan. I also added in some shredded cajun turkey meat and some Chinese spicy beef. The only other filling it needed was some cheese! Mmm. It was good enough for me, at least 🙂 Later, for an afternoon snack, I made a smoothie out of a peach and frozen fruit bits I found in our freezer (the parents freeze everything, I swear). What frozen fruit bits, you ask? Big grapes, bananas, and what I think was pineapple. Then I added a little milk, ice, agave nectar, and plain yogurt. Delicious!
Since Mom’s been gone in LA, I’ve been mostly improvising my meals. Dad made breaded pork and noodles today, though, as celebration of Mom being back. Now I’m in a food coma until forever watching Arrested Development (and the CMAs, thanks to Sister 3). Ah, the comforts of home.
