When I was younger, my mom used to bake up cookies every few weeks to feed the sweet tooth that my sister and I had. As a kid, nothing was better than a glass of milk and a belly full of cookies. YES. I had no self-restraint and never stopped at just one. Homemade cookies are best when fresh so I would eat 4-5 that first day…and the second day…and maybe just two or three after that…if there were still any cookies left.
Do you remember a year or two back when yogurt bowls were super trendy? It seemed like yogurt was all the rage for breakfast and healthy snacking—especially once Greek yogurt hit the scene. How, you might be thinking, can a food be trendy? Well, sorry, folks, that is a question for someone else. I don’t start the food trends I just utilize them.
I’d like to say that my love for smoothies knows no season but I found myself slipping away from them during the wintertime. I felt cravings for fresh fruit and creamy flavors but opted for breakfasts of oatmeal most days, instead. If the weather seemed mild, I’d make a cup of hot tea and drink my smoothie underneath a blanket on my couch. The hot and cold drinks allowed me to sip on my beloved smoothie without turning my insides into ice cubes.
When I was younger, I was not a fan of vegetables. Like, at all. Occasionally I would eat salad out of necessity to add color to my plate. Though, I was definitely disappointed to learn that my favorite tomatoes and potatoes were not really even actual vegetables!
