Breakfast Smoothie: Everything you need in 1 glass

Breakfast Smoothie: Everything you need in 1 glass


The Breakfast Smoothie

You may ask, “Why a picture of a smoothie?”  Well, “Why not?” The breakfast smoothie contains almost everything you need to start your day off right such as fruits, vegetables, healthy oils (medium chain triglyceride oil/MCT oil) and high quality protein.  The smoothie maximizes your nutrition in a minimal amount of time so you get almost everything you need during the day in one sitting.  So, “Why not?”

Breakfast has turned into dessert.  Sugary cereals, breakfast pastries (ex. Pop Tarts) and highly allergenic foods (gluten, flour, sugar, eggs, dairy products and milk)  have become the norm. Breakfast has become a way to spike your blood sugar quickly leaving you crashing hours later and making you susceptible to reliance on sugar or caffeine later in the day to patch your energy needs.  Long term this leads to metabolic syndrome, weight gain, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue, depression, type 2 diabetes, and chronic poor health. So why not a breakfast smoothie that gives you almost everything you need in 1 sitting that won’t spike your blood sugar and leave you susceptible to the depressive crashes later in the day? Why not have your first meal of the day prepare you for the physical and mental rigors of the day?
