I’ve discovered in the last year or so that I am OBSESSED with breakfast—both cooking it and eating it. I love the energy in the kitchen that comes from creating small, healthy meals because they set the stage for my mentality for the rest of the day.
When I take the time to make a well-balanced breakfast, my body feels so good and I’m more motivated to take care of it. This smoothie recipe is one of the best recipes I’ve created to do just that!
I mix in lots of different ingredients to make sure there’s not only protein and healthy fats, but lots of different vitamins and antioxidants inside the smoothie.
Vitamins are key to cell growth, cell maintenance, and protecting our immune system. Each vitamin performs different functions, so it’s important that we include foods in our diet that give us each vitamin.
Here are some of the key vitamins we should be eating each day:
In addition, antioxidants protect your body from free radicals (molecules produced from the breakdown of food or exposure to tobacco), which may play a role in decreasing chances of heart disease and cancer. Vitamin C and vitamin E double as antioxidants.
This smoothie has many of the vitamins I mentioned above to give your body a great head start on the rest of the day: vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin K.
It also has potassium, fiber, calcium, omega-3 fats, and no added sugar. Can you believe it? This breakfast has all these amazing ingredients without any supplements or protein powder!
Delicious flavors, that’s what! I’m telling you, this is one of my favorites to date because there are so many wonderful ingredients, packed with all the nutrients you need! Let’s take a look:
