Clean Eating

Sunday Morning Breakfast

Sunday mornings remind me of my time with my own family growing up. It was a day dedicated to our Lord and family time together. Mass together as a family, a morning drive, and even sometimes a breakfast out together. I strive for the same tradition in my family. It is usually a warm breakfast, church, and family time. The family time could be a drive, hike, games, or outdoor fun just depends on what we are in the mood to do.

I have been allowing myself a limited amount of dairy from time to time. Although, I have officially cut it out for good this past week after having a reaction to it. So I have been on the look out for something that I can still enjoy that is cold and refreshing. I have been wanting to try an acai bowl for some time now because they just look delicious. I think of of acai bowl as a thick smoothie that has endless toppings. This weekend I made Rob and I one, and I can just say I am hook ( the kiddos had our normal smoothies). I made one and split it in 2 for us. It was just enough and hit the spot. It is a little rich in taste but refreshing at the same time. I am sharing how I made mine with you all today!

Lets start with my warm breakfast of sausage, scrambled eggs, and potatoes. I sliced up some Aidells chicken and apples sausages I picked up from Costco this weekend. Giving myself a break (break on the budget too)  from the organic Kiolbassa sausage I was getting. This is a clean, healthy alternative for me.

I sliced up some sweet potatoes and scrambled our favorite eggs we get from Costco.

Served it up with fresh cherries and blueberries. Made a delicious fruit and greens smoothies for the kiddos.IMG_0448

Then I dove in and made an acai bowl for Rob and I .

Acai Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 packet of Sambazon Acai Berry Original Blend superfruit pack.
  • 1/2 packet of Organic Fresh Start smoothie blend (blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, kale, and spinach) – I used the other half in the kiddos smoothies.
  • 1 scoop of Dr. Mercola Organic Greens
  • 2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk (or any other non-dairy milk)
  • 1/2 banana – saved other half to cut up for toppings

Semi thaw Acai berry pack under warm running water just to break it up. Place in blender and blend it up.IMG_0445

Throw in the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. It will be a little thick since I am making a bowl and not a smoothie. If you want a smoothie then add in 1/2 cup non-dairy milk instead of 1/4.

Separate into 2 bowls and top with your desired toppings! I topped mine with shredded coconut, chia seeds, sliced bananas, and pecans. Rob added 3 Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips just because! Seriously so YUMMY!IMG_0455

Enjoyed a great breakfast and day with my family.
