Veggie Smoothies

If you’re looking for a way to get more veggies yourself, or for your kids to eat more, try these surprisingly delicious smoothies!

Veggie Smoothies

  • 3 cups sugar-free drink mix, prepared (we like apple or strawberry, but any flavor will work)
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen broccoli florets

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend about 3 minutes, until very smooth.  Last night, we replaced the broccoli with carrots and that was amazing too!  This will serve 2-4 people, depending on how big a smoothie you want.

Monday morning

Breakfast this morning is steel-cut oats, mixed with your favorite fruit and some protein powder.  I don’t know about you, but I had never tried these before last week, and I loved them!  This will definitely be a regular on my own personal breakfast menu!

For snacks, pick two of your favorites, anything that fits your plan.  Remember, there’s never a reason to be hungry!

Friday’s breakfast and snacks

Phew!  Our internet was out for a while and I was afraid I wouldn’t get this posted before morning!

Breakfast is 2 eggs and 3 strips of turkey bacon.  Snacks for tomorrow are yogurt with fruit, and an apple with a handful of almonds.

Check back later for my snack food entry – you need something you can eat on game day, right?

Wednesday breakfast, lunch and snacks

I’ve got to take the boys to the dentist tomorrow, so here’s the whole morning and afternoon’s menu!

Breakfast is the famous Banana-Walnut Shake.  Snacks tomorrow are an apple with string cheese, and a piece of fruit – your choice.

Lunch is:

Tuna-Stuffed Tomato

  • 1 tomato
  • 1 can tuna
  • 1 stalk diced celery
  • 1 tsp relish
  • 1 Tbsp low-fat mayo
  • sunflower seeds

Combine the tuna with the celery, relish and mayo.  Core the tomato and hollow out the seeds.  Stuff the tomato with the tuna mixture and sprinkle with sunflower seeds.

Veggie Frittata

Breakfast this morning is another favorite of mine.  Make sure you have an oven-proof skillet (no rubber or plastic parts).

Veggie Frittata

  •  3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of chopped veggies – whatever you like – onions and peppers are good
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Saute the veggies in olive oil until soft.  In a separate container, scramble the eggs.  When the veggies are ready, pour the eggs over them.  Don’t stir, just heat until the eggs are set on the bottom.  Meanwhile, turn on the oven broiler.  As soon as the eggs are set on the bottom, transfer the skillet to the oven.  Leave under the broiler until the top of the eggs is set.  Invert onto a plate to serve.

Snacks tomorrow are cottage cheese with fruit, and a celery stick with cheese.
