Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

I’ve been using my blender a lot recently, due mostly to the fact that I broke a very small, yet very crucial piece off the top of my food processor bowl the other day.

Here’s hoping that Santa’s got Cuisinart part #DFP-14WBC in stock.

The food processor won’t even turn on without that little hunk of plastic, so this is why I’ve been hanging with my pal The Blender for a week or so now.

The blender, as well as my second giant box of oranges in less than a month here. We’re all becoming great friends.

I think I’ve taken more naps in the past month than I have in the last 3 years. I’ve replaced meals with snacks, I’ve swapped vegetables for fruit, and now instead of running or blogging, I’ve been watching Season 1 of Modern Family on DVD.

I hate to be wimpy, but the first trimester has beaten me to a pulp. And that show is so damn funny I can’t tear myself away.

But speaking of pulp and tearing stuff away, let’s chat about oranges!

Lately I’ve been keeping an eye out for grain free, sugar free breakfast ideas.  Thanks to The Primal Blueprint, I’ve been feeling this urge to put a little space between me and my typical breakfast of champi-oats.

Ask and apparently you shall receive!  Didn’t a recipe for a bitter chocolate pumpkin cake land in my virtual lap?  I saw it here first at Heather Eats Almond Butter and then clicky clicked my way over to a Spoonful of Sugar Free for the original recipe for this wonder of sugarless, no grain, breakfast wonders.
