So, I like strawberries, and it is the season for all of us back yard growers to start picking! I downsized my plot of plants, but I still have some to pick periodically as they ripen.
The local farms should be ready for the "you pick deals" from June - mid July now! There are quite a few growers in the PNW to choose from. A local favorite is the Biringer Farm, you can check out their website for more information.
After, of course, the morning coffee, I will make my breakfast shake. It consists of one cup of unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened coconut milk, or unsweetened oat milk. Normally when watching calories, I will opt for almond or coconut milk. I also like at times to mix all three to make one full cup! I will add one scoop of whey, my morning vitamin, and one cup of frozen strawberries. Sometimes I will add a frozen banana or frozen blueberries. My favorite is just using strawberries. I blend this for about a minute to make sure everything including the vitamin is processed.
This is what I do now most of the time, but I do like to switch it up with assorted products and to try new healthy ingredients, so it never gets too boring! There are times I need certain supplements so I will toss them in if they are an agreeable ingredient to a protein shake. It makes it so much easier for me to ingest when in liquid form. I hate taking pills! Yes, I said it...
This is a quick meal, satisfying me for hours. Now, it's time to start picking!
