So the first week alone with the kids is coming to an end and I have to say it went pretty well. The first day was rough but after that we got into somewhat of a routine that is working for now. Our days still involve too much TV and electronics but for now that’s what keeps Noah out of trouble while I’m feeding Hannah so I’m just going to have to let the mommy guilt go on that. It’s not going to kill him. We also went out on our own for the first time to Noah’s gymnastics class and we were the first ones there! I was pretty proud of myself. We’ll see how next week goes.
For busy mornings, smoothies are always my go to breakfast. This is my new favorite and I make it at least 2-3 times a week for a quick and easy breakfast. It tastes just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I absolutely love the texture the oats add to the smoothie…it may seem weird but trust me, it’s the perfect addition to this smoothie.
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tsp. honey
- 3 Tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 cup milk (I use almond milk)
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal
- handful of ice cubes (depending on how thick you want it)
- Add all ingredients to the blender, except for the ice, and blend until smooth. If you want it thicker, add a handful of ice and blend again until smooth.
