Morning peaches ♥
I am so happy that today is Friday, I can’t wait for the weekend to get started. I have so much left to do in order to get ready for back to school, I can’t believe I go back in three days! Lot’s of interesting things happening on my end. I was supposed to have a band show last night but it got cancelled because there were tornado warnings so we had to sit on the bus! It was quite scary actually but everything turned out okay!
Lot’s of tasty eatin going on in the muffin household these past couple days…
Green smoothies have been a huge trend on the first breakfast front for me. I never seem to grow tired of them. As usual I add my Nutiva hemp protein powder and a banana, and a scoop or two of granola.
Yesterday morning I broke out Lucy (aka my Breville juicer) and put her to work. I always forget how much I love my morning cock-tails of carrot apple juice.
Lot’s of smooth Maranatha PB on top of my favorite Lundberg farm rice cakes.
I have been eating my leafy green’s by the pounds this week. This salad though was by far the best! I basically emptied the contents of our fridge into this bowl. I have sweet corn, green onions, spinach, tomato, red grapes, apples, a banana and a delicious baked sweet potato. With annie’s lite raspberry vinaigrette I was chowin’ down!
This morning with my breakfast I also tried something new for the first time – a plantain! Where is the picture you might ask? Well honeslty it didn’t look that appetizing so I was pretty skepitcal, but I ate it anyway. It was good. Sweet but not too sweet and a little sticky. I would get them again, but I think I like my regular old bananas better!
Plantains tend to be firmer and lower in sugar content than dessert bananas, alot of times are used in heartier dishes and stir-frys. They have a thicker skin than bananas do and when ripe they are a dark brown/blackish color. Plantains are excellent at promoting digestion, they also help your body retain more calcium, phosphorous and nitrogen … which will help rejuvenate your healthy tissues. They also contain high levels of vitamin A, potassium, calcium, iron and fiber. Go give one a try and tell me what you think! I think I might pick up a couple more and try cooking them to see if they taste any better.
I am working again today and tomorrow, and my mom and I will be running around to the store picking up a few last minute things, that means shopping! Have a great weekend!
Question of the day –
What are your plans for this weekend, anything fun or exciting?
