Light but Filling Breakfast – Strawberry & Banana Smoothie & Eggs Sunny Side Up

by Utokia Langley

WOW, this breakfast is light but oh so filling.  And of course it tastes AWESOME!!  I was tired one morning and didn’t want to do the whole bacon, egg, grits and toast thing!  So I decided on a 2 item breakfast.  I went for eggs sunny side up because well that’s one of my favorite ways to eat eggs (next to scrambled soft with American cheese)!  I then choose a strawberry & banana smoothie to compliment the eggs but to also help to fill my belly.  Fruit smoothies as you know can be made with any kind of fruit.  I like the strawberry & banana for the sweet taste as well as all the vitamins from the strawberries (like Vitamin C, B2, B5, B6, K, etc.) and the iron boost the bananas give my energy level!!  I also choose strawberry Greek yogurt for the creamy texture and more sweetness to add to the taste!!  Hope you enjoy this breakfast as much as my family and I did!!  Have FUN!!

I am light but filling – healthy but tasty – I am Strawberry & Banana Smoothie & Eggs Sunny Side Up!
