We have all had this drilled into our head for years- that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.. well it is! Your first meal of the day is meant to give you the right sustenance and energy for what ever activities lay ahead for you.
According to several tests, most adults should be eating @ 25% of our daily energy intake (At Breakfast women need to consume approx 300-500 calories, and for men approx 375-625 calories in the morning). The evidence shows (based on several surveys & tests) that at least 30% of adults skip this meal all together.
You want to set yourself up for a great day, where you can feel as good as possible, have mental alertness, and feel energised. That is why choosing what you consume in the morning is so important. You also want too feel full for a few hours in the morning, so that those 10am sugar cravings don’t hit you.
That’s why I love Smoothies! Choose the right ingredients, throw it all in a blender, and you literally have supersonic superfoods with high nutrient values to get going for the day.
Here is a Smoothie that we love so much- so tasty, filling and packed with protein and nutrients. This smoothie is also packed with Alkaline ingredients. This recipe can be modified to suit dietary requirements and ingredients can be swapped out to suit your needs and tastes. This is a Vegan Smoothie.
- 1 medium banana (fresh or frozen)
- ½ cup blueberries
- 1 Scoop of protein powder (We love NutraOrganics Hemp protein Creamy vanilla)
- 1 Teaspoon of Amazonia Organic Acai Berry Powder
- 1 tablespoon almond butter ( We love Melrose Almond & Chia Spread )
- ½ cup baby spinach
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk, water or coconut milk
- Optional: 1-2 Teaspoons of MicroOrganics Green Superfoods Powder
- Optional: 1-2 basil leaves, 2-3 mint leaves, ½ teaspoon peeled, chopped ginger
Just remember, you can modify this in anyway to suit your needs- that is why Smoothies are a great breakfast choice- the varieties are literally endless!
