Healthy Habits--- Breakfast foods!

It's time for another Healthy Habits post linking up with Katie! I love participating in this because so many of the other posts are so inspiring and motivating.  I love discovering new ideas and insight into leading a more healthy lifestyle and finding more blogger friends! 

This week, I've decided to start focusing on my breakfast habits. I am NOT a breakfast food fan at all, but the older I get the more and more I believe that it really is the most important meal of the day.  On the days that I make time to eat a good breakfast, I have so much more energy throughout the day, and feel more productive getting things checked off my to-do list. Also, after quite a serious low-blood sugar scare last week, I've tried to be more intentional with my choices.  I love searching Pinterest for new high protein breakfast options that will help my blood sugar stay level and make me feel full for longer periods of times... which is a difficult task while pregnant. 

So I thought I would share with you my most favorite new smoothie recipe I've found! It was super easy to make, and gave me soooo much energy, and seriously kept me feeling full for almost 3 hours, which again, is a LONG time for this pregnant lady!

I did leave out the oats only because I didn't have any, but I want to try that next time! My honey isn't raw honey either... I've never bought raw honey before, so I just used what I had on hand... close enough right?

One thing I loved about this was how easily it blended up! It was so smooth, and not too sweet or filling that you couldn't drink the whole smoothie. And man was it yummy!!

 I will definitely be making this  a regular part of each week!!

What are some of your favorite breakfasts?? I would love to hear anybody's suggestions!


  1. Yum and yum! That smoothie looks delicious! I have always been a breakfast eater, or else I get grouchy and mean ;) My favorite thing to eat for breakfast is two scrambled eggs and two of my chocolate/oatmeal breakfast balls. I posted the recipe yesterday on my blog and it might be something you'd like! They're really easy to make and quite filling :)

  2. That smoothie looks delicious! I'm totally gonna try it! Breakfast is my favorite meal. I love pancakes with peanut butter and a little syrup. For a healthier option, I like to make a breakfast parfait with Greek yogurt, a little honey and cinnamon, slivered almonds, granola and whatever fruit is handy.
