Fall is truly my favorite time of year. The leaves begin turning bright colors and falling to the ground looking like flowers upon the still green grass, the outdoors looking like an almost painted landscape. One of my favorite sounds is the leaves crunching and crackling under my feet. While I love summer and spring, not so much winter—being from New England—fall is truly the most beautiful time of the year.
This can certainly sound strange if you have never heard of zoats before. Zoats are a delicious way of sneakily adding veggies into your breakfast when you crave a warming bowl of porridge. Zoats are also a great low carbohydrate & high protein option because they are made up of egg whites, zucchini, and a small amount of rolled oats, along with some other ingredients.
I have a big family so family parties for holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter are always wonderful but also full of so many different types of foods. I used to struggle at these family parties, trying to eat so little and then having a taste of something sweet and going wild, binging on anything and everything.
In high school I got really into making smoothies. I had a “classic” smoothie I would always make which I still remember to this day: 1 cup water, 1 banana, 1/2 cup berries, & 1 cup spinach. It was always very tasty but I never knew anything about all of wonderful ways you could make a smoothie! This smoothie is probably my new “classic” smoothie, super simple, very nourishing, and absolutely delicious.
Thank you for reading and horray for my first post on my new blog! I am so excited to share this “recipe” with you because if you’re visiting from instagram you’ve probably seen that I make this typically once a day. I’ve been making this “recipe” super often for about six months and I haven’t gotten sick of it yet because there are so many different ways to make it.
