Peach Banana Smoothie Bowl

Peaches are one of my favorite summer fruits. White or yellow, I love them all! And they’re a family favorite. Even our littlest guy loves them! They only last a couple days in our home especially if they’re at their peak sweet spot in ripeness. But this morning, I made this Peach Banana Smoothie Bowl.

Well, look no further, I have an easy and simple Sausage Egg Vegetable Breakfast Bowl for you. Normally for us, the weekends are when we change up our breakfast routine but that doesn’t always happen…especially if we need to be somewhere at a certain time.

Banana Berry Chia Seed Smoothie

Happy November 1st! Stores are now filling up with Christmas decorations. Aisles are filled with pumpkin, gingerbread, chocolates, peppermint and everything fit for the holiday season. I’m still over here trying to savor each bit of Fall that I can.

While savoring the fact that today is the beginning of November, I made a Banana Berry Chia Seed Smoothie. Does it speak Fall? Not quite. But it’s definitely refreshing!

I, personally, had never bought or tried chia seed before. I kept seeing post after post about chia seeds and was thinking that I needed to try it. So, after several weeks of not giving into the chia seed trend, I finally did it. Can I just tell you that those little seeds are superfoods?! They are a bit smaller than flax seed and you really can’t taste their flavor. They have lots of fiber and other great nutrients, which help to keep you (and me) fuller longer.

Basic Homemade Granola

Happy Monday! Hope you started off your week with a delicious breakfast and a good strong cup of joe! Today I have a Basic Homemade Granola recipe for you!

It’s super easy to make. You can make it with everyday ingredients from your pantry. Can I tell you how many times I have made this granola and have failed!?! I burnt several batches and others tasted terrible. But after several attempts and many days of eating burnt granola, I have finally found the key! The key, my friends, to good granola is LOW oven temperatures and SLOW roasting. 250F seems to be great temperature for granola making. No 425F here. Otherwise, you will end up with blackened granola, which isn’t good.
