As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Green Morning Smoothie

Need a quick breakfast? If  you've got a blender and 3-5 minutes, you're all set! The past 2 weeks, my husband and I have been loving these tropical-tasting smoothies. You can also change up the fruit with whatever is in season or in your freezer.

The Nutrition Rundown: Little is better than getting a full serving of vitamin-rich vegetables for breakfast. Unlike juicing, blending a smoothie won't leave your beverage fiber-less. The proportions of healthy fat from the avocado, protein from the Greek yogurt, and natural sugar from the fruit will leave you full and satisfied until lunch.

Green Morning Smoothie
Serves 2
2 cups coconut water
1 cup nonfat plain/vanilla/honey Greek Yogurt
1 banana
1 cup frozen pineapple
2 cups baby spinach
¼ avocado (optional)

Directions: Blend all ingredients in blender for ~3 minutes, until smooth.
