Breakfast of Champions

If you pronounce 'champion' with a shhh sound at the beginning, rather than the hard chh sound, you have just said champion in danish.  Congrats!   There's not much going on today...we took the metro to school, instead of biking, we learned some new things in danish, i washed ed's clothes, ed made dinner with leftovers and now we are taking scout for a walk together before I type out our verbs of the week.  I will share a picture today, to make up for the fact that I don't have anything terribly interesting to write about. Our favorite breakfast:

The Green Smoothie:  2 cups of water, 2 bananas, 2 tablespoons flax seed, 4 frozen mango halves, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple and 2 large hand-fulls of fresh spinach.  Plus about 6 ice cubes. We make this most mornings when we have time but use whatever frozen fruit is available.  Today, it just so happens to be...quite green.  Have you seen the new 'food plate' that replaced the food pyramid?   This smoothie helps fit in some of the veggies if you are not a big fan.  You cannot even taste the spinach.   Enjoy!


  1. that is awesome. we actually drink an almost identical smoothie every day. i splurged on a blendtec last year and it is totally worth it.

  2. I especially like the ball jars ;)

  3. Ed and I have talked about getting a better blender since we use it often but haven't gotten around to picking one, and buying it. I will have to look into the blendtec now!

  4. Nickalodeon Slime anyone?? :-)
    Loving this H.. Keep it up!! :-) xoxo
