Great Grains on Facebook is asking: What Makes You Great?

For me, it has to be my determination.  Or what some might refer to as stubborness.

When I get an idea or goal, I find a way to make it happen.  If I don’t succeed.  Well you know the saying . . . I try, try, try again.  And again. And again.  {That is where the stubborness kicks in.}

Mornings are a perfect example of this.  I am NOT a morning person.  For years I have tried to be.  I would love to spring out of bed all bright and shiny.  Not Happening.

But, I keep trying to become a morning person.  I’ve tried showering first thing, morning yoga, waking up earlier, waking up later, thinking happy thoughts.  So far the only thing that works is lots of coffee and about 2 hours undisturbed.  Then I am ready to have a great morning! lol.

One thing that does help my morning grumps is a satisfying and nutritious breakfast.  At least with this Orange Cream Breakfast Smoothie and a bowl of Great Grains, my body can start the day off happy!

  7. My husband loves orange cream soda…I wonder if I could trick him with this smoothie!!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      As a soda lover myself, I can say that this smoothie Does Not replace soda. But it is yummy! lol

  8. What a great looking breakfast!

  9. This smoothie is calling my name! So I guess what makes me great is my ability to hear inanimate objects speaking to me? Scratch that, I’ll just take that smoothie, please πŸ˜€

  10. I’m also NOT a morning person. A smoothie that I can take with me is usually how I roll. This one looks fantastic! I don’t usually sit down and have a bowl of cereal, but I have tried the great Grains before and thought it was really tasty!

  11. I’m 45 and admit I love getting older. There’s something about getting older that makes you just become at ease with who you are. I’m so comfortable in my own skin. So why am I great, because I’m me. 100%, all the time. Don’t enter me since I’m Canadian but wanted to play along.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      So true, Kim. I used to worry so much about what other people thought about me. Now I could give a flip! Thanks for playing along πŸ˜€

  12. Hear ya on not being a morning person!! But what a fabulous treat to start the day with!

  13. Christina says:

    What makes me great? Good question. My, usually, easy going nature.

  14. Amber Crichton says:

    I strive to be healthy each day!

  15. We are huge smoothie fans here in my house and I love this flavor combination!

  16. I think what makes me great it to be able to look at the positives and encourage others to look at them too.
    My son will love when I make him this smoothie πŸ™‚

  17. I’m trying to broaden my breakfast ideas with kids going back to school and this idea sounds great! I never think to combine juice AND milk or yogurt. Great idea!

  18. ummmmm, that’s tricky! I guess my heart. It can be a blessing or a curse, but I’m choosing to see my tender heart as something that makes me great because I actually do care about others around me

  19. Breakfast with something that reminds me of an Orange Freeze? I’m in!!

  20. manda says:

    My compassion and empathy toward others.

  21. Carolsue says:

    Holding my family together — even when they don’t want to be held together! (you know, teenagers)

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Ughh, fortunately I have 10 more years before I know about raising a teenager. Good Luck!

  22. I’m not sure if I’ve tried Great Grains before. I need to pick up a box. And of course try the smoothie recipe too.
