My children’s cravings for sweets have been bugging me lately, and it’s not hard for me to know where their cravings are coming from… me! I’m a soda drinker and always have been. Even though I know how terrible it is for my body and for my teeth I’m finding it hard to stop! First thing in the morning I want to feel that sweet burning sensation traveling down my throat!

In hopes to start better habits for myself and for my kids, I’ve been working on some smoothie recipes with the help of my gal pal, Katie. All my kids want to eat in the morning are carbs… pancakes, french toast, and waffles. If I make them eggs, they’ll cry and cry, even though they all loved eggs at one time. I believe grandma may have ruined this for us without knowing by introducing “sugar snow” aka powdered sugar. Carbs and powdered sugar are the request every morning.

But, like I said, I’m no better because I’m happy with a big fat soda! So, step one is finding a better breakfast to either replace my soda, or add to my kids’ carb cravings. Here’s a start.
