a morning smoothie is a fast portable, vitamin-packed breakfast.
And if you choose the right ingredients, your morning smoothie is a great opportunity
to get a jumpstart on the nutrients your body needs for the day .
Varying your ingredients and making sure to include fat and protein as well as fresh
fruits and vegetables makes sure you`re getting a balanced breakfast that will keep
you steady throughout the morning.
Fruit is often the backbone of smoothies , adding antioxidants, fiber and sweetness.
Frozen fruit makes a thick , frosty smoothie, so keep your freezer stocked with berries
particularly blackberries , raspberries, blueberries and cranberries , which have the
highest level of antioxidants.
Bananas add body and sweetness to your smoothie, while fruits like kiwi and
pineapple add a pleasing acidity.
But don`t limit yourself to berries and other fruit .
Stemmed leafy greens such as spinach, chard, kale , arugula and romaine lettuce;
parsley, cilantro and other herbs and fresh sprouts all purée nicely in a blender 🙂
An easy , healthy way of taking care of yourself – feel the power of living
a lighter , more playful , energetic life – you will love it 🙂 🙂 🙂
Love & Peace
