Holiday Dinner Planning Begins - The Breakfast Smoothie
What? You're going to make me explain it? LOL. Okay, fine, eating breakfast has many benefits: it fires up your energy, which you are going to need to get through the day; it gives your brain the fuel so that you remember to put the salt in the potatoes, not the sugar; and it helps stave off binges when dinner is finally ready.
This recipe for Emeril's Yummy Wake-up Smoothie is super easy and very healthy. It's full of fruit, fiber and a little protein. Use non-fat yogurt and it's even healthier.
I went with a smoothie because all it requires is a blender and a little time AND it's for YOU. Yes, Y-O-U, the one who will be up before the crack of dawn making sure there will be food for everyone else later in the day. Plus, there are a couple more servings for the little ones who couldn't stay in bed because there are presents under the tree.
Tomorrow, "healthier" appetizers and a reasonable dip.
Yours in Health,
