Do you eat a wide variety of foods? After 6 weeks of tracking my food (just what I eat, not how much), I’ve discovered that I don’t. I am a very consistent (read as boring) eater. At breakfast, this lack of variety stems from an efficient routine that builds a meal in a limited amount of time. The problem: How to add a dash of variety to breakfast without upsetting the morning routine? Here is one way that I have succeeded in doing this.
healthy Jamaican carrot juice
Inspired by a recommendation to try traditional Jamaican carrot juice, I came up with my own breakfast recipe:
1/2 can of coconut milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4 peeled and chopped carrots
1 cup frozen mango
Step 1 – In the order listed above, place ingredients in blender.
Step 2 – Start blender on lowest setting and cycle through to high.
Step 3 – Blend for 30s on high.
Step 4 – Pour, drink, enjoy!
I don’t strain out the carrot pulp. Too much work. I swapped coconut milk for the traditional sweet condensed milk and the frozen mangoes for the traditional brown sugar. The mangoes make the drink sweet enough for me, but if you don’t have mangoes, substitute orange juice (you probably won’t need a whole cup – add a little at a time until you get the right consistency).
My next experiment…adding half a beet to this recipe for a healthy morning Madras.
