MMMM…A Breakfast of Champions

I decided to let you peek into my mornings around here and see what we like to rummage up for our breakfast-which is the most important part of the day!

So here my husband had the daunting task of juicing lots of oranges.  Actually it goes really fast and is actually quite fun to do!  On mornings that we have big glasses of O.J. we can easily go through a bag of oranges but I can usually get a bag for around $1.50 or so.   Sometimes I buy oranges by the case and get 100 oranges for around $15.00.  We can usually go through a case in a week if we are drinking O.J. everyday.  Oranges are so good for you can read my post about them here.

After the oranges are juiced we divide it up into cups…..2 little ones for my sweeties

and two big ones for my husband and myself.

We never just drink O.J. plain though…….I like to add some of my favorite super foods.

First, our O.J. always gets a good heaping spoonful of this:

These are chia seeds….they are little black seeds that are a great source of omega 3’s, fiber, protein, plus lots and lots more….these little things are warrior food!  They offer no taste but kind of look funny suspended in the glass!  We love it!

I also sneak a little ingredient into the juice without anyone knowing:

This is organic kelp and it is a great source of iodine.  Iodine is needed for a healthy thyroid function.  I only put a pinch in everyone’s juice and they have never even known!

Once the chia seeds and kelp have been added we add ice and slurp it down super fast.

Occasionally, I use my juice to make a super smoothie.

I will pour my juice in the blender and add bananas, chia seeds, kelp and then some of this

Based on its research, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has stated that bee pollen is the most nutritious food we can eat. It contains every nutrient required to sustain and support life in a pure, raw and unaltered form.  I try to take at least a tablespoon everyday!

I add some ice and blend it up!

Voila!  My super delicious breakfast of champions!  It is so yummy!  I hope you enjoyed the peek into my families mornings…..ENJOY!!!

  1. Hi, do you find that the chia seeds get semi stuck in your throat? I don’t know many people(in my group of friends) who use chia and I have found it to be so. I will still use them but not as much and I make sure I use the blender. Just wondering what you thought..maybe it’s just me?

    • Hi Lorraine,
      I find that if I make a chia gel and use that or if I let it sit 10 minutes in the juice then we have no issues. You want the seeds to soak up a lot of the liquid before you consume them…..maybe that will help. 🙂

  2. Nice immunity booster. I need to boast mine, as I’ve had a cold for more than 2 weeks. I’ve eaten a lot of clementines, but they don’t seem to be helping. It’s weird, but I actually feel a little better on the days that I don’t eat them. Oranges and the like never seem to help me, although they work for everyone else.
