If you want to eat smart, deciding what to eat is only part of the answer. You also need to figure out when you're really hungry. But isn't that easy? If you're hungry, you're hungry, right? Not always! Your brain can make understanding what you need very tricky! When you're feeling sad, stressed out, excited, or bored, you may try to fix those feelings with food.

Banana Breakfast Bash

INGREDIENTS:

1 large banana

1 ripe avocado

8 to 10 ounces reduced-fat milk (Chef Lizzie likes to use a non-dairy milk like oat, almond, or soy.)

2 tablespoons sugar or honey (A little honey accents the fruit flavor -- like salt accents the flavor of other foods.)

PREP:

  • Peel the banana. Break it up into three or four pieces. Put them in the blender.
  • Peel the avocado and remove the pit. (You may need help from a grown-up. Pits can be hard to get out.) Put the avocado in the blender, too.
  • Pour in the milk.
  • Add the sugar.

MIX:

Chef Lizzie says: Remember you should always have a grown-up watch you when using kitchen appliances like a blender.

Put the cover on the blender.

Mix until creamy. It should take about 15 to 25 seconds.

SERVE:

Pour your smoothie into glasses. Yum!
