One of the first things I figured out about transitioning to the Autoimmune Protocol was breakfast is going to be difficult. Most mornings Dear Hubby would grab one or two hard boiled eggs and slap them on some bread on his way out the door. I know this is what he was doing because every time I’d open his car door pieces of yolk and bread crumbs would fall out. In my head I call him Hansel—just one of many little private jokes I keep with myself. Does anyone else do this, or am I just crazy? (Please, don’t answer that.)
The problem with breakfasts is this: DH is usually leaving for work in the mornings at EARLY times (1:00 a.m.-ish). I am not about to get up that early to make beautiful paleo concoctions, which require effort. So we have settled on smoothies for these first few days. It’s a win-win because not only can I make them the night before, I can also hide extra nutrients for him. This week he has been having a delicious blueberry-banana-green smoothie with some extra goodies tucked in (kombucha and coconut-milk yogurt). SHHHHH! Don’t tell him that!
Super-Dooper AIP Paleo Smoothie
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup pineapple
1-2 cups baby spinach, kale, chard mix (or whatever greens you have on hand)
1 cup Kombucha (I’m using a ginger-lemon flavored variety)
1/2 cup coconut milk yogurt
Dump everything except the water into the blender and blend until smooth. Add water until the smoothie reaches your desired consistency.
Et voila! Does anyone else have an AIP-compliant smoothie recipe to share?
