breakfast time

our planet makes such beautiful food

without a doubt my favorite time of the day is breakfast time. it's a time in the morning (sometimes later) when we get to fuel ourselves for a journey out into the world. this week has been a good example of what i wanted to eat, what i needed to eat, and when i'm out the door and eating.

what i wanted:
gluten free pancake breakfast at watercourse after a 3 mile run with friends

what i needed:
breakfast salad with avocado, banana and romaine.
dressed with blood orange juice and coconut.

when i'm out the door:
morning pick me up
(makes 2 16oz servings)

28oz distilled water
1 cup chopped and frozen pineapple
2-3 bananas chopped and frozen
1 large handful of kale
1 heaping tablespoon of raw hemp seeds
1/4 teaspoon red cayenne chili flakes
drizzle of raw agave nectar (optional)
pinch of pink himalayan sea salt

Blend all of the ingredients together. Enjoy!


  1. Green smoothies are my fuel each morning before I leave to greet the day. So good! Also, those pancakes look delicious.

  2. @ brett, i love them the best with kale and spinach! and those pancakes are good i sans granola for more fresh fruit!

  3. mmm, I've been meaning to try Watercourse breakfast for a while now, looks so good... And breakfast salad? Brilliant!

  4. @ vegindenver, you should. it's def worth a try. breakfast salad is always good. i generally mix romaine with blueberries, bananas or both!

  5. @ ms. adventuress, i love to wake up and have such beautiful food to eat =) =) =)
