A healthy holiday breakfast
Have you ever searched Pinterest boards for Christmas breakfast ideas?
You'll likely find dishes loaded with fat and sugar, for instance, cinnamon rolls baked in the shape of a Christmas tree or Monkey Bread topped with eggnog drizzle. Also popular are baked French toast casseroles or the traditional “Wife-Saver” casserole made with white bread, eggs, bacon, and cheese.
They all taste wonderful! However, if you have a big meal planned for later in the day, a lighter, healthier breakfast might appeal to you. This protein-packed holiday Gingerbread Smoothie will give you the energy necessary to get you through your busy morning.
