Happy Monday y’all! Life is still crazy busy in the Hungry Southern Belle house. We gave the Big Green Egg (or “Kermie” as we like to call it) a great workout yesterday! Be on the lookout for a guest post from our very own Riche on the slow smoked pork butt he prepared….DELICIOUS! It gave us both a chance to slow down and enjoy the process of prepping a yummy and flavorful meal. Monday came along quickly again and I was in need of a quick but healthy breakfast option to start my day off with a bang! One of my favorite go to smoothies right now is the Butternut Squash and Cherry Smoothie (recipe courtesy of barre3). This is a perfect way to start my day…especially now that I’m entering into week three of our barre3 Winter Challenge! Enjoy y’all!

1/2 banana (frozen)
