No excuse to miss breakfast anymore!

I've always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day....and it is. It give you the energy to go,go,go! Being a teacher, I need all of the energy I can get.

I am one of those people who get up, get dressed and I'm out the door in the morning, skipping breakfast and having a snack at 10. Well not anymore.

The hubby got me an Oster My Blend for Easter and I have been using it during the school week every single day. It's pretty amazing. It's a mini blender however it blends into the tumbler you drink out of. So you blend, put the top on and go.

I thought I'd show you what I do to get everything ready for my morning breakfast smoothies.

They have a few colors to choose from. The hubs got me pink as you can see.

First I chop up all of my fruits and veggies

Then I scoop some into snack sized zipper baggies.

Here are all of my baggies.

Before I zip them closed a push all the fruit and veggie goodness towards the bottom of the bag. This is an important step. I do this, so after the baggies are frozen, I can open them up and slide out the frozen fruit and slides it easily into the tumbler without having to brake it apart to make it fit.

Then I pop them into the freezer.

Come morning, all I do is put a little OJ in the tumbler with one of the baggies of fruit/vegs, blend and a few seconds later I screw on the tap and I'm out the door.

If you live in Texas HEB has these little Oster My Blend Blenders and right now there is a coupon for $10 off. If not, I linked you to their website at the beginning of this post!
