five day challenge. gluten-free & vegan. breakfast.

For those of you who follow the blog, you know that I try to eat gluten-free the majority of the time, but I am not a vegan (I eat poultry & seafood). In an attempt to drop a few unwanted summer pounds, I decided to give myself a little food challenge. And, why not? This time of year the fruits & veggies are abundant, so it shouldn't be too boring. Besides veggies, there are all sorts of grains & legumes to eat...it should be a cinch to forego all those summer grilled meats.

I decided to share my favorite new breakfast. Sure, a kale shake sounds really sad, but I really love it. Give it a shot. I have also made it with spinach which is just as good.
