That cracks me up! Menu Plan Monday: Heather Style! If you lived in my house, you'd understand why that is so funny! Do you want to know what we have "eaten" every night for the last 2 weeks (no kidding!)? Smoothies..yes, every night...smoothies!
Here's the deal. I hate to eat, especially in the summer. I know, it sounds like I have some huge mental problem when I say that, but it's true. I'm just not into food. I drink something all day long. Normally, I drink my Pepsi, but occasionally I shake it up with a good smoothie.
My husband is wonderful and will BBQ so the kids actually get real food, but I figure they eat protein, dairy and other good stuff throughout the day that a smoothie for dinner, with something healthy before bed, is not going to kill them, and it makes this mommy happy!
Here's what I put in my smoothies: frozen fruit (peaches, strawberries & melons), 2 bananas, yogurt, milk, fresh fruit (always blueberries & raspberries) & orange juice.
I should mix it up a bit and buy different stuff, but I know that all my kids will drink it this way, without whining or complaining, and they absolutely love it!
