Two Breakfast Ideas

The seasons are changing!! This morning I made a lovely peach dish for breakfast and it was filled with warming spices and maple's going in my next cookbook so stay tuned! I'm so psyched for fall. It's going to be fall weather all week. Last night I had to close my window because of the chill. I'm excited to change up my wardrobe and bring back some of my fall clothes and shoes. I miss my ankle boots! I'm going home in October for some fun in the Poconos so I'll be bringing back some warm clothes.

I'm kind of obsessed with this green smoothie I'm about to share with you. I made it a couple times and I just devour it. You can make it anytime of day but I love a smoothie for breakfast or right before or after a run. This recipe is detoxing and light and there are so many nutrients packed into this mason jar. Here you go!

1 cup of organic spinach
Juice from 1 small lemon
1/2 avocado
1 pear
1 frozen banana
1 cup of coconut water
A handful of romaine lettuce

Blend everything in your high powdered blender. Add more coconut water if needed. This is so delicious!

Another breakfast dish I love is mochi. Mochi...a block of sweet rice that you cut up into a few pieces, bake or grill and it puffs up into pastries. I drizzle maple syrup on them. I suggest you try this awesome breakfast! You can find mochi at whole foods and any small health food stores.

I also made mochi and put it in my oatmeal for an extra sweet twist. You can buy plain mochi which is just rice and no flavoring or you can buy flavored mochi. I tried a chocolate flavor this time and it was good. If you get the plain mochi and drizzle with maple syrup, you can taste the maple flavor a lot more.

What did you have on this meatless Monday?

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
