Strawberry Fields - The Classic Breakfast Shake

Coconut Water Breakfast Shake Recipes - Strawberry Fields, Loco Coco Coffee, and Blueberry Maca Haze

  • 1 1/2 cups of coconut water
  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries. When strawberries are in season, I like to thinly slice and freeze my own. Thinly sliced puree better in the blender, but whole strawberries will work. Let the whole strawberries sit in the blender, submerged in the coco water for a couple of minutes to let them thaw out. Then, add the other ingredients.
  • 1/2 to a whole banana. Sometimes, when I have bananas that I haven't eaten, that get really soft before they're too old, I slice them up and put them in the freezer for my shakes.
  • 1/3 cup of raw oatmeal
  • Splash of orange juice
  • For a protein boost, add two scoops of all-natural, unsalted peanut butter or vanilla protein powder (if you don't mind adding "unnatural" ingredients).
  • Blend for 30-60 seconds

Loco Coco Coffee - The"SpoilurSelf" Breakfast Shake

  • We want about 1 1/2 cups of coffee that were brewed using coconut water. It's better to plan ahead and put the coffee in the refrigerator the night before so it's cold. Coconut water has a very mild sweetness and will be undetectable in your next one or two batches of coffee that are brewed.
  • One medium to large banana that has been thinly sliced and frozen.
  • 2-3 large tablespoons of all natural, unsalted peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of raw oatmeal
  • Put in the blender and blend
  • While blending, add about 2 or three tablespoons of chocolate syrup, preferably, an all natural, dark chocolate syrup.

Blueberry Maca Haze - Antioxidant Packed - Mayan Warrior Breakfast Shake

  • 1 1/2 cups of coconut water
  • 2 tablespoons of maca powder. Maca is a root, indiginous to Peru that has been used to for thousands of years. It's benefits include: increased energy and endurance, it helps build muscle, it rejuvenates skin and can help improve sexual function.
  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries.
  • 1/2 banana
  • 2-3 large tablespoons of all natural unsalted peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup raw oatmeal
  • Blend for 30-60 seconds

12 Ways to Eat Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is one of those foods that people tend to love or hate. I have been a fan since first discovering its healthy diet food status back in the 1970s. It is a great source of protein with about 14 grams in a 4 ounce serving.

Cottage cheese can be enjoyed in so many ways - on its own, with fruit or salad, on toast, and in a wide variety of both sweet and savory dishes.

\"Easy Breakfast Recipes\"

Are you put off my the texture of cottage cheese? To make it smooth, give it a whirl in a food processor or blender. Then it becomes a healthier alternative to sour cream in your favorite dip recipe or as a tasty topping for baked potatoes.

12 Ways to Eat Cottage Cheese

Looking for new ways to eat cottage cheese? Here are some ideas.

1. Mix it with nut butter. Stir a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter into a half cup of cottage cheese. Use it to stuff celery or spread on whole grain toast or crackers.

2. Serve it with fruit. In my opinion, cottage cheese and fruit is a match made in heaven. I love it for both breakfast and lunch during the summer. Just about any fruit will work - fresh, canned in fruit juice, or frozen. Delicious options include:

-Sliced bananas
-Crushed pineapple or pineapple chunks
-Berries - blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or a combination
-Melon chunks or balls
-Fresh or canned peach slices
-Chunks of apple and a sprinkle of cinnamon
-Applesauce or apple butter

3. Add it to smoothies. Blend it into your favorite fruit smoothie or green smoothie recipe for an extra boost of protein.

4. Stir it into pasta. The cottage cheese gets warm and creamy and is especially good with lots of freshly ground pepper.

5. Top it with salsa. Good with tomato salsa, tomatillo salsa, or fruit salsa.

6. Stir in a bit of pesto. Enjoy as a dip or spread for vegetables or crackers or stuffed into hollowed out cherry tomatoes.

7. Spread it on toast. I love cottage cheese spread on toasted raisin bread, then sprinkled with cinnamon and chopped walnuts.

8. Sprinkle with granola and drizzle with honey.

9. Spread on thin slices of apple and sprinkle with cinnamon.

10. Use as a substitute for sour cream. First buzz it in a blender or food processor to make it creamy.

11. Season with your favorite spice blend. Lemon pepper, Mrs. Dash, seasoning salt, Old Bay, and Herbamare all work well. Spread on vegetables or whole grain crackers of stuff into celery or hollowed out tomatoes.

12. Mix with chopped celery and tuna or small canned shrimp. Makes another great dip or spread.

How to Cook Steel Cut Oats

Steel cut oats are very healthy since they are the least processed of the oat family. Foods that undergo less processing are more natural and healthy. Steel cut oats also have a robust nutty flavour and are very tasty!

To make steel cut oats start off with 3 cups of water, add a generous pinch of salt and bring it to the boil. Stir one cup of steel cut oats into the boiling water.You can adjust the amount of oats to suit your taste. Bring the mixture back to boiling, then turn it down to a medium heat and simmer it uncovered for up to 30 minutes. Check on it and stir often, if it rises or spills over the pot turn the heat down a little. If a skin forms just stir it back into the mixture. After 20 minutes, taste the oats. If you prefer the taste and texture at this point you may want to stop cooking. Be sure to keep stirring frequently to prevent any burning in the bottom of the pot. If you find the oats are too thick near the end of cooking, you can add a little more water or perhaps a little milk to make it creamier. When it is cooked to taste, remove it from the heat and set aside to cool off but only for a minute since it will become very thick and unappetizing if it stands too long.

When you are ready to eat the oatmeal, top it with fruit, such as blueberries, raspberries or your favourite dried fruit. A topping of nuts adds a nice crunch. To sweeten you may want to use honey, maple syrup or brown sugar then add a little cinnamon to finish it off.

How to Cook Steel Cut Oats

Any leftover oatmeal can be kept refrigerated for up to a week. It will become firm and gelatinized but when you heat it again it will soften. Try heating it for one minute on high, then stir in your favourite toppings and heat again for a minute or so to suit your taste. You can also stir in a small amount of milk at this point to give it a creamy taste.

Try cooking a big batch of steel cut oats to keep in the fridge for a super healthy morning breakfast. Cooking steel cut oats is really quite simple. Just remember to keep some interesting toppings on hand to change it up and break the boredom of the same old breakfast.
