Ugh – in the last couple of days, my computer got hit by some kind of virus or trojan or something. I still don’t know what it was, but it caused serious havoc in my world. To make matters worse, I tried to fix it by downloading what I thought was a legitimate spyware program, which ended up being virus fueled as well. I have wasted so much time on computer problems this week. I was about to lose my mind when I stumbled upon a great computer repair help board called, Bleeping Computer (appropriate name, isn’t it?). Thanks to the helpful tips of some of the forum posters, my woes are gone.

This morning I was knee deep in annoying computer problems and didn’t even want to think about breakfast. But, guess what… the kids thought they needed to eat. Can you believe their nerve? When times like these strike, I go for pure simplicity. Something quick, healthy and full of vitamins. The best part is the kids have noooooo idea that I am cramming nutrition down their throats. They think they are having milkshakes for breakfast and because of that, I am the coolest mom in the world!

If you need a little simplicity to start your morning, give a breakfast smoothie a try. There are plenty of options out there, but this tasty Blueberry smoothie is one of our favorites!

    Mmmmm….that sounds so good. I’ve got some blueberries I need to use pronto.
    Thanks for the link to the pomegranate smoothie, that sounds like it needs to go on the smoothie list too.

    I love smoothies! And, it’s even better when the kids have no idea that the treat you are serving them is healthy! Double bonus!

    Hmm, I haven’t tried adding wheat germ yet to my smoothies.
    I don’t really follow any recipes* when making them, I just eye it and hope for the best! :)
    Very chef-like of me, huh? :)

    *Of course I’m not admitting that I probably should follow a recipe, no no no! 😉
