Happy Monday! We just got back from a trip to Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons and I have to say those parks are so beautiful. We had a lot of fun sightseeing, hiking, battling some crazy storms and of course s’mores! I cannot wait to go back. You definitely need to allow a lot of time in each of these park to fully enjoy all they have to offer.
This week I am getting back to my regular routine but I have noticed I am slacking in my veggie eating again. I am not a big fan of raw vegetables and in the summer I don’t seem to cook as many. I really want to focus this week on incorporating veggies into every meal and snack. I also want to try to get my daughters to eat more veggies as well. This is a difficult task. They are not big veggie fans. I did a little experiment today in my daily smoothie. I added in some frozen cauliflower instead of my usual spinach or kale. It was awesome! I even added it to my daughters and she had no clue it was in there. This is a big win! Cauliflower has such a mild flavor you can add it into your smoothies or oatmeal (check out this recipe) and not even taste it. This is the new favorite smoothie concoction for summer. You have to give it a try!
- 1 Cup Frozen Mango
- 1/2 Cup Strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2-1 Cup Frozen Cauliflower
- 1 Cup Milk of Choice
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (optional)
- Add all ingredients to high powered blender. Blend and enjoy immediately.
- You can use frozen riced cauliflower as well. I just used the regular frozen cauliflower and it worked great.
