Make-Ahead Oatmeal Smoothies

Make-Ahead Oatmeal Smoothies
Awhile back, I wrote a post about Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal that has been very popular with Yummy readers. (Thanks for all of the enthusiastic feedback!) Since then I've been experimenting with a smoothie version of that recipe. Breakfast before school or work, or on the way. If you have kids and have a hard time getting a healthy breakfast in them before school, let them choose or create a favorite flavor and help you make them ahead of time. Great boost before or after exercise. Make ahead convenience.

Pure Raspberry Ketone VeganYumYum | Yup, I'm back. Blueberry-Vanilla Coconut Butter I am utterly addicted to coconut butter. The melt-in-your-mouth smoothness, the rich texture, and the naturally sweet taste combine to make the perfect straight-off-the-spoon experience. I used to buy jarred coconut butter at the store, but my wallet didn’t appreciate the habit—so I figured out how to make it at home from scratch. My world has never been the same! It didn’t take long for me to start creating new, adventuresome varieties of coconut butter in my own kitchen, and I truly hit the jackpot with this flavor combo. Blueberry-Vanilla Coconut Butter Calories Serves 1 1/2 cups Ingredients 3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut1 cup fresh (or thawed frozen) wild blueberries (preferably organic)1 teaspoon lemon juice1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract1/8 teaspoon sea salt1 packet stevia or 1 tablespoon sweetener of choice (optional) Preparation Place the unsweetened shredded coconut in a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth and buttery.

Plant-Based Nutritarian Weight Loss Recipe Blog A few weeks ago I received a question from one of HGK's readers and I need every one's help answering it. "What do you do for quick breakfasts for kids. We run out the door eating They usually eat a cinnamon toast waffle plain." The following are some ideas, but I have a feeling that YOU, the readers of HGK, have a lot of great suggestions for this breakfast challenged family! If I have said it once, I have said it a million times (or at least a few times), eating healthy takes planning and preparation. So here are some ideas of healthy ways to start your family's day: #1 Real, whole fruit. #2 Lara Bars (you can find them at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods and probably at most local grocery chains at this point!). #3 Ezekiel toast with peanut, almond or other nut butter. Smoothies. If your kids are not ready for a green smoothie, go ahead and make one entirely out of fresh and frozen fruit with ice. #5 Oatmeal with toppings. #7 Sweet potatoes. #8 Breakfast burrito. #9 Vegan pancakes.

Homemade "Vicks Vapor shower disks" Have you seen the commercials for the Vicks Vapor shower disk thingies? You put one of these disks in your shower, and voila thanks to the vapors in it, you're magically healed, your cold is gone, and your face is shockingly free of snot. I always used to watch the "Noxema girl" splashing water on her face and wondered how she was able to wash her face without being completely overrun with boogers. I'm the only one? Yes? Regardless, Vicks makes these things and I'm sure they're super expensive for something that is just going to wash down your drain. You know where I'm going with this, right? Yep. I made them myself. The idea started a few weeks ago when my sweet little nephew Parker came down with Croup for like the 1,438th time. And they couldn't be any simpler. Sarah's Homemade Vicks Shower Disk Thingies -Baking soda -Water -Essential oils: eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender. 1) Add baking soda to a mixing bowl. 2) Slowly add water until you've made a thick paste.

White Wine - Butter Sauce (Beurre Blanc) 1. Combine the finely chopped Shallots with the White Wine and Vinegar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Gently simmer the mixture until practically all the liquid has evaporated (reduced by 90%). 2. Add Heavy Cream. (If the cream is not being used, the same amount of another liquid, such as water, must be added, or the sauce will be too thick.) 3. 4. 5. 6. This recipe contains a small amount of heavy cream, which, although not essential, will help start the emulsion. HOLDING AND SAVING BEURRE BLANC: If held properly, beurre blanc prepared just before a restaurant service or lenghty meal will stay intact for several hours.. VARIATIONS: You can add Orange, Lemon, or Grapefruit zest with the shallots and a teaspoon of juice for a citrus sauce.
