Look, it’s this simple. I just HATE throwing edible food away.
Rarely do it. Re-use, recycle, feed it to the starving teens. Anything but throw good food away, even into the compost bin. Terrible waste.
So breakfast at our place this term is shaping up to be: rye bread toasted, Weet-Bix or muesli, milk or fruit juice and fresh fruit.
I do love the kids to have some fruit at breakfast time. Canned fruit for those days when we have no fresh.
And so one day I got back from the school run to find the table strewn with dirty dishes, including half a soggy Weet-bix and some about-to-moulder peach.
It just made sense to blend it all up and drink for brekkie.
Wouldn’t you do the same?
Peach Smoothie – With Leftover Breakfast Weet-Bix
200ml almond milk
Half a soggy Weet-Bix
One scoop vanilla IsoWhey Complete
Chuck all in the blend and whizz away. This made two large glasses of smoothie, which is just what I needed as I’d done a 6am cross-training class.
Jeez, it tasted great and I wished I had had it straight after training… but then it would have been a different leftovers-free smoothie, so that wouldn’t have worked.
But I must get some protein in more quickly after my workouts.
What brekkie leftovers would work in a smoothie for you?
This post was tragically not sponsored by Weet-Bix. Note to Weet-Bix, will write for food. I was sent the Iso-Whey Complete French Vanilla and am enjoying trying it out with lots of other flavours. Not all leftovers!
