Breakfast of Champions

Ok not really.

Last night I made Pioneer Woman's Apple Dumplings. And they were good. But I woke up feeling pretty icky about myself. When I went into the kitchen, I started to get another serving of this as a breakfast but changed my mind to something a lot healthier. A smoothie and salsa. Sure its half weird for breakfast but it worked! And you know what? I feel SO much better energy wise than if I had loaded up on that crazy apple sugar yumminess.

My smoothie was just done in the juicer part of the bullet using cut strawberries (which is why you always cut up your fruit when you get home from the store so they are ready to go when you want to use them and then you cant use the "I dont want to cut them excuse"!), banana and a peeled orange.

1 orange
1 handful of strawberries
1 banana
about 6 ice cubes
blend. mmmmm enjoy!

The salsa was made the other night and it was my first time making salsa (Micah has done it in the past). I used:

a bunch of tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
2 green onions
1 lime
1 jalepeno (and it was CRAZY hot)
cilantro from our garden
salt and pepper

pulse in food processor.

the chips are organic white corn chips seasoned from sea salt from Fresh and Easy...and they are SO good.

*everything italicized was from the farmers' market!

For some reason, the jalepeno was a lot hotter than normal. Thats ok though, the smoothie helped with the spiciness!

My stomach just growled at the site of that smoothie. Now I am craving one.

Why did you have to hide that salsa away from me yesterday, hehehe? ;)
