I Can't Sit Still

I don't know about you, but sometimes I get so excited about something new that I want to do ALL THE THINGS and do them RIGHT NOW! But I'm also in a season where I realize that slowing down and taking a breather is a good thing. It's Spring and the sun is shining here in Southern California...I need to remind myself to soak it in and experience renewal rather than just relish in the rush of daily life.



I’ve been traveling a bit lately, and frankly, have used the excuse that I was between trainers to become lazy about maintaining my weight loss. I’ve watched the scale start to creep back up, so last week, I decided it was time to knock that crap off.

I find that while at work, I feel snacky quite often. My breakfast regime used to keep me full until lunch, but I think it was time for a change.

Some time ago, I bought some Carnation Instant Breakfast packages. I took a quick look at the side of one and noticed directions for a breakfast smoothie. I decided to try it and it was not only delicious, but it was just what I needed to get me through until lunch without starving!

Give it a try sometime, if you, too, need a breakfast routine switcheroo!

Ingredients: 1 package of Carnation Instant Breakfast, 3/4 cup of skim milk, 1/2 a frozen banana, 1/2 cup of ice. (FYI – this weekend, I bought the No Sugar Added Rich Milk Chocolate flavor and it was almost as good as the regular one!)

Directions: Throw everything into a blender and then serve. (My blender is a personal size one from Target and I LOVE it. You can drink straight out of it, too!)

This is not a sponsored post. Who in their right mind would pay me for a review as ridiculous as this?

  1. I had a carnation instant breakfast every morning before high school. Not to be healthy but because my sister and I could mix it up really fast and then jump in the car. This makes me want to try them again, but this time make a smoothie.

  2. i am ALWAYS hungry again by 10am no matter what i eat. i think my body crams a whole day of hunger into the first 6 hours i’m awake. must try!

    • I hear ya…it’s like my body teases me into being hungry when I’m just feeling snacky! What’s that all about?!

  3. Personal size blenders! Who knew? I might have to track one of those down.

  4. Love the recipe and the information for the Personal Size Blender. What a great idea.
