Breakfast Power Smoothie

Ok, all…so Ashley once again proves her awesome gardening skills and beyond!  :-)  Have you ever made your own green powder for smoothies?  I think we’re going to need to hear more about this!!  Agree??  Be sure to stop by her blog and see what else she shares!

Breakfast Power Smoothie by PioneerMomma.com for Eyes On The Source

Hello again! Do you eat breakfast every morning? No really, honestly? If you’re like me, sometimes a morning meal is the last thing on my mind when starting our day. I’ll forget to munch and end up cranky in a few hours. Who wants that?? If you have five minutes, that’s all it takes to make one of these delicious smoothies that will pack a punch to up your nutrients for the day. Great start means great day :-)

One of the most important (and nutrient rich) ingredients I use in this smoothie is this green powder. Eww, what is that? And why does it smell like rabbit food? That’s easy.

This wonderful green stuff is organic lettuce from our garden. Plus some kale and spinach from the market. I threw all these into the dehydrator after some thorough washing, and ta-da! They turn into crumply leaves you toss into a blender and store in a jar. This idea came about when we were really getting way too much lettuce coming in the house and couldn’t eat it all. I definitely didn’t want to waste it, so I tried dehydrating it. Four tablespoons of the powder equals a whole colander full of greens. Totally worth it. Especially since I’m not usually found on the couch burying my face in a bowl of lettuce. It totally helps get in a ton of necessary nutrients, and doesn’t mess with the sweet taste of the fruit.

Ready to make the smoothie? Here’s what you’ll do:

Ingredients

1 cup frozen blueberries

5-6 frozen large strawberries (hulled)

1 large banana

2 Tbsp dehydrated greens

2 cups vanilla almond milk

Directions

1. Put everything into the blender on high for about a minute. That’s it! Enjoy your nutritious breakfast :-) If you’d like something that would hold you out a little while longer, you could add 1/4 cup of uncooked oatmeal, and you will feel fuller. Also, I added some Qia cereal to the top as a garnish. I picked this up at Costco, and it has various seeds (chia, hemp, etc.) and such in it. Very healthy and very tasty! This recipe makes about 4 glasses, so bring some friends!

Hope y’all have a wonderful week!

Banana Walnut Protein Energy Bites

My six-year-old son is always asking for no-bake recipes. :-)  He loves to help out in the kitchen and no-bake recipes are a perfect way for him to do it all by himself.  We often sit together looking at the pictures in cookbooks or scroll through the thousands of amazing ideas on Pinterest.  We like to experiment and come up new recipes…sometimes that works…sometimes, not so much!

Here is our latest creation we came up with last night.  What he didn’t munch on and pass out to family members last night, he finished off for breakfast this morning.  YUM!

Ingredients

1 Ripe Smashed Banana

1 Cup Rolled Oats

1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts

1/2 Cup Natural Peanut/Almond Butter

3 Scoops Vanilla Protein Powder (about 6 Tbsp)

Mix all ingredients together.  If you prefer a more fine/smooth texture, blend all or part of the oats into a flour with a blender or food processor. Use a small scoop to create bite size portions.  Dip scoop in coconut oil if bites don’t come out smoothly.  Scoop onto a platter, cover and then place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before enjoying.  Should keep in the fridge for at least a week or so.

Super simple, perfectly portioned energy bites :-)

Just Say Jesus

Love this song :-)  When you haven’t the strength, understanding or clarity to understand/handle your current circumstances…all you have to do is…Just Say Jesus.  He already knows :-)  He is bigger than the mountain you are facing.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Romans 8:26

Just Say Jesus

Power in the name, Thank you Jesus!

 Blessings~Kelly

Use, Share, Build With Shaklee~Two LIVE Webinars!

BE PART OF THE EFFECT (USE, SHARE, BUILD)

I just got back last week from an amazing week in California!  Took me a bit to adjust back to Florida time :-)  And the kiddos wouldn’t let me out of their sight after being gone that long!  But I will get a more detailed post up soon on my week with Shaklee friends and family!

Since, starting my own business, I have been able to earn an income from home, lots of free health products and other bonuses. I have made lifelong friendships, helped many to work towards their dreams and goals and helped them change their health and lifestyles. More than all those amazing benefits, I have grown as a person and learned the skills that it takes to succeed and I am blessed to share them with our amazing team. This team is highly motivated and serious to impact their lives and everyone they touch.

Shaklee & Project Dream Intl. has changed my life and I will be forever grateful!

Getting Back To The Basics of Life

As I write this I am preparing for a missions trip with two of my three boys.  By the time you read this we will be back already :-)  I’ll put together an update post about the trip that you can find over on my blog.

Basics Of Life Feet of those

I am looking forward to this opportunity, especially for my 9-year-old son.  We live in a society where even those of us with very little have so much more than the rest of the world.  We are very much used to instant gratification and often so spoiled but we don’t even realize it!  I am hoping this trip will open his eyes to thinking outside of his own little world and show him what REAL need is like.  I hope and pray that he will embrace this opportunity to give and learn.  I pray that he will know how blessed we can be by blessing others.

Read the rest of this post over at DAY@DAYJOYS.COM where I contributed earlier this week!
