It’s no secret, most of the time around these parts it’s all about the sweets, the desserts, the decadence. I always say the creations here on Food Babbles are what I love to make, my treats. While in “real life” I eat very healthy. Maybe that’s just so I can indulge in all my Babbles creations. I start each day off with a green smoothie. For those unfamiliar, a green smoothie is one that contains leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or even peppery arugula. Yum!

Maybe that sounds strange to you? Trust me though, it’s such a great start to my day. My green smoothies are packed with healthy greens but also a ton of fruit. Recently I was sent a delightful care package from Wild Veggie. Inside, I found two varieties of their breakfast bowls, strawberry and blueberry. Each bowl contains barley, quinoa and steel-cut oats with that fresh fruit. They are SO good! I was so happy to get to give them a try. They were hearty, filling and most importantly, they taste amazing!

Inside, I also found vegetable purees of broccoli and carrot. Immediately I thought how convenient pure, organic, non-GMO vegetable purees with no preservatives or additives would be for making smoothies! Not only that though, these purees would be great for adding a nutritious punch to pasta sauce, macaroni and cheese and more! While I was thinking about green smoothies, I decided broccoli wasn’t the way I wanted to go for my breakfast smoothie so my thoughts turned to carrots.

Amber, I am SO sorry to hear this! I actually wasn’t aware of that pop up ad at all so thank you for bringing it to my attention. I hate pop ups too! I’m not seeing it when I come to the site but I will look into for sure. AND you can’t “x” out of it?? Double annoying. Again, my apologies and I will be sure to try to get rid of it ASAP. Thanks again!
