Blue Breakfast

One of my favorite summer fruits is the blueberry!

I have always loved this tiny blue fruit, but became an even bigger fan when I got to go blueberry picking in Mississippi.  I ended up with a huge bucket of blueberries for the most amazing price.  I ate fresh blueberries every day for a week and froze the rest.  There were always blueberries in my freezer to thaw out for recipes and snacks.

These days, I buy my blueberries at the store, and I am always thrilled when Costco offers the HUGE container for a reasonable price.  I always say that I should buy a few and freeze them for the winter, but then I forget, and the prices go up, the berries get smaller, and summer has passed.  Maybe this will be the year that I finally remember!  It will be worthwhile to have breakfasts like this all year long!

It is no secret that I am a BIG fan of the Dough Boy smoothie (which I believe was created over at KERF), but I have never tried a blueberry version before this morning.

My breakfast was not as blue as I would have expected, but none the less it was delish!

I love how easy, tasty, and filling this breakfast is!!!  My blender has been working over time!

I had enough time to catch up on a few games of Words with Friends while I ate breakfast before heading off to meet the trainer at the gym.

Despite waking up super early, I had more than enough energy to power through the challenging intervals and strength work she had me do before heading into work. Although at the end of the day, I am exhausted and beat.  Luckily, it is finally the weekend!  I must say having Fridays off, I think my week flies by quicker, maybe it’s just because the summer is a SUPER CRAZY busy time at work!
