berry healthy breakfast smoothie

Ok, obviously we watch a lot of Strawberry Shortcake around here.  :o)  And it’s probably no surprise that I’ve been drinking a lot of smoothies lately.  I’m guessing maybe you have been too?

And eating salads, and comforting soups and oatmeals, and just plain detoxing from the glorious food-bingeing of the holidays?!

Now, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the food-centered bliss of the holidays, and I look forward to them all year long, but I also love a clean slate at the end of all of it.

I’m not one to make new years resolutions… I’ve tried and I never make it past day 3… but I like to make new DAY resolutions and eating healthier is one I make almost every day.

Of course, some days, that thought doesn’t even make it out of my brain before I am enjoying a cookie for breakfast, but for the most part, I try to keep a healthy balance with my every day eating habits.

Healthified smoothies are one of my favorite ways to feed myself and my family healthy food in a way that feels…  indulgent even.  Because really, who doesn’t love a  refreshing, fruit-filled smoothie?!
