What’s In This Fruit Smoothie?!

I haven’t had a fruit smoothie in a while so I decided to make one this morning!

Here are the ingredients and their benefits:

-Strawberries: contains vitamin C which is great for immune system and skin health

-Bananas: contains vitamin B6 which helps maintain a healthy immune system, contains potassium which helps control high blood pressure

-Kiwi: helps reduce blood clotting, aids in better digestion

Maca powder: boosts energy and endurance

Chia seeds: has high fiber and protein content

Greek yogurt: contains probiotics for better gut health

Spring mix greens: rich in folic acid, iron, and vitamins A, C, K, and B6

Black seed oil: high in antioxidants and may lower blood sugar levels

I added a handful of strawberries, one banana, one kiwi, 1/2 cup of greek yogurt, 1 tsp of chia seeds, 1 tsp Maca powder, 1/4 tsp black seed oil(has a very strong taste so be careful lol), a handful of spring mix greens, and a little water to help everything blend well!

I’ve never tried this combo before but it was pretty good!

Egg Muffins w/Bacon For Breakfast On The Go!

The mornings can be so hectic that we don’t have time to eat a good, healthy breakfast and we end up grabbing a fast breakfast that may be full of carbs, sugar, salt, or preservatives!

Here is a quick and very easy recipe for a healthy, on the go breakfast option!

Ingredients:

-6 eggs

-3 pieces of bacon (crumbled)

-Seasonings: sea salt, ground black pepper, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, or any other seasonings you’d like to use

-Chopped green peppers, red peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and green onions. Feel free to add any other veggies you’d like to add

-Shredded cheese; I used mozzarella

Directions:

-Crack 6 eggs in a bowl, add seasonings, and scramble together.

-Line a muffin pan with paper muffin cups and spray pam in each cup.

-Add chopped vegetables and crumbled bacon to each muffin cup.

-Pour the scrambled egg mixture slowly into each muffin cup until all the egg mixture has been used.

-Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Set oven to 400 degrees and let bake for 25-30 minutes.

-Check the middle with a toothpick and if it’s still a little gooey in the middle, it needs more time. When the center is set and the muffins are puffy, they are done cooking. Once they’re done cooking they are ready to eat!

You can eat these egg muffins right away with salsa or by itself. Or you can store them in a covered container in the fridge for about 1 week. To eat, just reheat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and enjoy!

Make these egg muffins and eat on the go for a healthy breakfast packed with veggies and protein to stay full all morning!
