Does creating healthy meals everyone will enjoy overwhelm you?ย Oh, friends…. how I feel you! Even as someone who loves cooking this can have me wanting to bang my head on the floor and just serve wine ๐Ÿท for dinner (๐˜ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฌ ๐˜ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜บ ๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ด ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐Ÿคช). So when I heard my daughter say the thing she is most grateful for regarding virtually learning is having me make her awesome breakfast my mama heart ย E โ€ข X โ€ข P โ€ข L โ€ข O โ€ข D โ€ข Eโ€ข D!

Breakfast can be hard….am I right? Even with only one kid heading out the door due to COVID I still find myself sometimes feeling overwhelmed with staying creative and tempted to buy all the “normal” breakfast foods that come in boxes and bags. Even though I know they rarely include anything of nutritional value, the convenience can be very tempting. That why I love flooding our bodies with these plant-based meals that break our fasts and sets the tone for our eating and cravings for the rest of the day.

The best part is that these challenges with my clients have rubbed off on my family. They didn’t jump on board round 1 or even round 5. But here we are 6 years later and they now get excited when they hear “smoothie challengeโ€.

We don’t drink smoothies every day (๐˜ฆ๐˜น๐˜ค๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐Ÿท๐Ÿธ ๐˜‹๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜š๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜Š๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ถ๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜จ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ด). But we do make smoothies & smoothie bowls often because friends… I’m working too, and convenience is key. They are such a fast way to fuel our bodies with plants, they taste great, and our cells ๐Ÿงฌ thank us!

Tell me which meal is the most challenging for you prep? Do your kids/partner complain and gulp it all down?
