This morning I just wasn’t feeling solid foods, warm foods, heavy foods, ect. However something cold sounded good, especially in this ridiculously hot weather (it has been over 90F in VT this week). So I decided to make a smoothie filled with the things I love.
Melon from our CSA, unsweetened Hemp Milk, Chia Seeds and Raw Almond Butter
I really love to add chia seeds to smoothies because it adds omega-3’s and are loaded with antioxidants, calcium, protein, fiber, and vitamins including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, niacin, and zinc. They really help to bulk up my smoothie. Buy Now
I also add the raw almond butter to bulk up this simple smoothie since I am having it for breakfast and want it to fill me until lunch. This raw almond butter is great because it is silky smooth and just nice a creamy with a sweetness you don’t get from regular almond butter which generally is made from roasted almonds. Also just a reminder that this almond butter is available in my OpenSky shop and until September 7, 2010 for every jar purchased $1 will be donated to The Lunch Box Project and I will make a donation for every jar sold as well.

Oh and of course the Hubz and I drank ours out of our GlassDharma straws- decorative dots for me (Buy Now) and simple elegant for the Hubz. (Buy Now) I love these straws and am so glad I was finally able to try them – I will have a mini interview coming at you next week from the crew at GlassDharma- so keep your eyes peeled!
I used to eat oatmeal for breakfast almost every morning but once the weather got warm it just wasn’t as appealing for me and ever since I have struggled to find something that fills me up and keeps me satisfied until lunch. I tried oats with soygurt, toast, cereal, smoothies and fruit but none of them seemed to work. Now I am back to my old ways and in the oatmeal groove and I’m loving it.
This mornings oats included my favorites: Irish Style Oats, cinnamon, chia seeds…..
banana and coconut peanut butter!
Nothing goes better with oatmeal than a french press of coffee in a tiki mug!
