Starting my day off right means fueling my body with nutritious goodness. I know how easy it can be to neglect healthy eating if you’re short on time or have a million tasks to complete (not to mention the temptation of the delicious doughnuts your co-worker brought to work); but trust me, it’s well worth it! Studies suggest that eating a healthy breakfast may help combat obesity and diabetes in addition to increasing cognitive function, and energy levels.
Finding healthy recipes that also taste good is a challenge on its own. A little trial-and-error in the kitchen has provided me with a slew of recipes that are both yummy and nutritious. You might even skip the doughnuts after you try some of these recipes ;)!
The smoothie recipe below has become a staple for me over the years, especially during the spring and summer! Delectable and rich in nutrients, it will surely keep you energized and feeling good throughout the day.
MORNING GREEN BEAUTY SMOOTHIE
• 1/2 cup of Almond Milk
• 1 Banana
• 1 Handful of Kale
• 1 Handful of Blueberries
• 1 Scoop of Protein Powder (I use a Plant Protein-Vanilla Bean, but you can use any protein powder)
• 1 Teaspoon of Maca Powder (helps energy, regulates stress and hormones, increases fertility and supports blood circulation)
• 4 Ice Cubes
• 1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds (keeps you full longer, balances blood sugar)
Directions: Blend all ingredients in a blender.
Happy blending and stay tuned for more healthy recipes!
