It is 6:35 am and I have already fed my family. Parenting a child with special needs, who is g-tube fed for medical reasons has led me down paths I’d have avoided. I have benefited from those paths!
My two guys (one age 15 and one age-undisclosed 😉 ) just left for their busy days. I have been up since 5:45, but it only took me 10 minutes to make their breakfasts:
2 cups orange juice, 2 large bananas, 1 pound strawberries, 4 ice cubes.
Blend and serve! Then with the leftover amount of about 2 cups, I add 1 cup of (full-fat) yogurt and 15 walnut halves. (The guys don’t like these two ingredients in their smoothies.) I then feed my darling daughter, Little Miss, with this smoothie.This provides protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, essential fatty acids and has the added benefit of smelling great!

I hear you saying, “That is quite a variance in calories! What makes the difference?”
Air bubbles make some of the difference – check out tomorrow’s post!
