Books and Bowls

Look what I found!

While out running errands on Friday, I spotted Caitlin’s book: Operation Beautiful! I’m pretty sure I screamed when I saw this sitting on the shelf, “MY BFF wrote this!”

 

I started reading the first chapter, and so far it is absolutely amazing. I am so proud of my friend for her accomplishments, and for continuing to inspire others. I can’t wait to read more!

 

The book officially comes out on August 3, but for some reason I was able to find it early at Borders.

 

 

Breakfast:

 

On Friday morning, I treated myself to a new kind of breakfast. I was out of fresh fruit (only frozen) and decided to try something new.

 

Smoothie in a bowl + Cereal:

In a blender, I combined:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 5 frozen strawberries

 

On top, I added some Kashi Crisp cereal. Light, refreshing, cold, and crunchy. What could possibly be a better summer combination?

 

I loved it so much, that I tried another version of the smoothie for dessert last night: with white chocolate chips! It was an extremely healthy ice-cream treat alternative.

Have you tried a smoothie in a bowl? What would be your choice of toppings?

  1. oooh, good idea with the chocolate chips! i’ve never put toppings on my smoothies!

    and the book looks super cute!

  2. I can’t wait to get Caitlin’s book. 🙂 The SIAB and I are bffs. I usually add lots of ice, some protein powder, and a little xantham gum — all of those things together make it super voluminous. I love blueberry-banana-vanilla. Yum!

    Happy Sunday. 🙂

  3. So exciting about the book – I can’t wait until its here! I love smoothies in a bowl, especially topped with crunchy cereal.

  4. How exciting for Caitlin that the book is hitting the shevles! Iy must be strange seeing a book written by somebody you know.

  5. I’ve never tried a smoothie in a bowl, but I definitely should sometime soon with granola!
