We're supposed to eat green stuff every once in a while. Dark green stuff. It's good for you. So, scramble some eggs and eat some spinach.
What you'll need:
What to do:
Salt on the spinach makes it taste pretty good.
Got to get your greens somehow, men. Just do it.
This is a smoothie that is quick and healthy. It serves a family of 4. It's mainly based upon yogurt and bananas. But we have a simple trick to make the smoothie thick.
Here's what you need to make the greatest fruit yogurt smoothies:
Blend it all in a blender.
We've been testing smoothies for years, and we continue to improve on the balance of the ingredients. This simple recipe is a simple way to feed a family a quick, healthy breakfast.
We've tested and compared yogurts from the grocery store to the farm, and the best yogurt that our taste-testers love comes from a local organic farm. The yogurt has been fermented for at least 24 hours, and it has not been heated at high temperatures, so the bacteria is still alive. If that freaks you out, then consider Wallaby organic Greek plain yogurt from the store. It came in a close second place, because of its taste and thickness.
We've tested adding ice, but that makes it too cold. We recommend using frozen fruit to bring some sweet fruit taste to the smoothie in addition to adding some coolness to the taste.
The avocado makes it thick. Remove it, and it becomes much thinner. Avocado is the trick to thick smoothies.
Here's a quick breakfast that I enjoy making for the family. It's scrambled eggs and Swiss chard. Swiss chard is a great side dish to an egg breakfast. Chard is like spinach, but tastes better. It's meaty and earthy. Chard contains a lot of vitamins.
I recommend cutting off the stems from mature chard, but keep them if they're thinner than a pencil. Keep the mature stems for later stuff, like soup or baking. Add the young chard stems for some chewiness of the chard dish.
We've cooked charge in our test kitchen many tie. We know that chard isn't like spinach which has a lot of water content, so we add a small amount of water to cook it. We simply leave the leaves wet after washing. No need to add water to the pan. Cook a little until the chard feels tender.
This is one manly, hearty breakfast.
