Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to give up soda or sweet drinks? Or, do you get tired of dull old water? Well fear not, because I have the perfect savory drink to satisfy your sweet tooth. I introduce to you, naturally flavored water! This drink is great to take with you on the go or just to sip on at home! It basically has zero calories, but a boatload of flavor! Here are a few of my favorite recipes:

– Raspberry Lime Flavored Water: Cut 2 limes into 4 pieces each. Squeeze the juice from the limes into the jar, and then throw the squeezed limes into the jar. Add raspberries. Take a wooden spoon and press on the fruit to release some of the juices, but don’t totally pulverize the fruit. Fill the jar with ice and then fill water to the top. Stir the mixture, cover, and refrigerate.

– Watermelon Rosemary Flavored Water: Add a sprig of rosemary to the jar and press it with a wooden spoon to release some of its flavor. Cube a watermelon and add the cubes. Press gently on the cubes with a wooden spoon to release the juices. Fill your jar with ice cubes, add water to the top and stir. Cover the mixture and refrigerate.

Let your mixtures sit in the fridge for about 24 hours to let the flavors mix into the water. Then, enjoy! The mixture in the picture is blackberries and lime! Yummy!

XOXO, Chels

During the winter months, there is nothing tastier than a warm breakfast! Today I am going to teach you how to make a totally mouth-watering breakfast perfect for any winter morning! Introducing, French toast roll-ups!

Ingredients:

-8 slices white sandwich bread

– Softened cream cheese, diced strawberries, or Nutella

– 2 eggs

– 3 tablespoons milk

– 1/3 cup granulated sugar

– 1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon

– Butter, for greasing the pan

1. Take the soft white bread and cut the crusts off. Use a rolling pin and flatten the bread out.

2. After you have flattened the pieces out, add whatever filling you want. I recommend sliced strawberries and softened cream cheese! You can even add Nutella, for you chocolate lovers!  Add the fillings to the end of the bread and roll them up!

3. Dip the rolls in an egg/mixture just like you would regular French toast. Brown them in a skillet and then roll them in cinnamon and sugar!

Rethink Breakfast!

            Breakfast, it’s the most important meal of the day!  Starting your day off with a healthy meal is a great way to fuel your metabolism and get your day going.  Sometimes, it’s not always easy to make yourself a good breakfast when you you’re in a rush for school or work, but it IS possible!  Get rid of that boring cereal or granola bar and rethink breakfast with these new and creative ideas. 

            Toast is one of the most popular breakfast sides.  With so many topping choices, the variety is endless!  So what if you’re sick of the typical butter and jelly?  Try topping your toast with peanut butter and sliced bananas or any flavor of cream cheese with a handful of blueberries and strawberries.  Toast doesn’t have to be boring!

            If you like salty breakfasts try Egg Beaters!  It’s eggs already mixed up, so all you have to do is pour and cook!  They come in all different flavors including three cheese and southwest.  Try making an omelet stuffed with your favorite meat, veggies, and cheeses.  If you don’t have time to cook in the morning, make pre-made omelet muffins.  Start by greasing a muffin pan so the eggs don’t stick.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and any toppings you would like, including meat, cheese, and veggies.  Fill each muffin cup evenly and bake at 350° for 20 minutes.  Now, you have breakfast ready in advance.  Just heat and enjoy!  Chelsea Crockett- omelette muffins

            Never skip out on breakfast!  Your body will love you if you fill it up with a hearty and healthy breakfast.  Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring.  Get creative and rethink breakfast!

Love,
