Green juice and go to salad jar

Need an inexpensive way to transport all those juices and greens ? Mason jars ! These things are great ! Secure enough for liquids such as my morning shake or green juice and I can fit all contents of my salad in it while keeping it fresh and not soggy.

The picture is of one of my recipes for a green juice, which helps me get all my veggies in daily and is super refreshing. The other item is my salad which I usually have for lunch.

Recipe for the green juice :
Half a cucumber
3 slices of pineapple
3 huge kale leaves
Couple icecubes
1 cup of water

Put all in blender and it's ready to drink :)

Salad  :
1. Place your dressing in the jar first
2. Next your toppings (cheeses , ham , chicken , eggs)
3. Your greens or peppers and tomatoes

What's so great about the mason jar is that it keeps your whole salad in one container without it getting soggy. Definently my new way of packing up my salads .

My Mon-Fri on the go breakfast

With everything in life we all seem to be too busy. Missing breakfast ends up being one of the most common mistake people make, which ends up being a great sacrifice since breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

A couple reasons why you should have breakfast:
* recharging, you have just fasted for 5-9 hours and need your nutrition to start your day and increase your energy level
* combat obesity, people who miss breakfast have a greater chance of becoming obese , you'll have a greater lunch or make decisions with desperation and go to the closest fast food restaurant just because you're starving

Here is the recipe for what I drink Mon-Friday in order to insure I have breakfast everyday.

1/2 cup of dry oats : 150 calories
1cup almond or coconut milk (unsweetened) : 30 calories
a little bit of cinnamon : 6 calories
1 whole banana :  105 calories
a couple of ice cubes : 0 calories

Put in blender , pour in a cup and you're ready to go

Total of 291 calories. I drink this at 7:45-8 am and I am satisfied and hungry again at 11am when I have my snack.

No excuses, Pam :)
