“Eat breakfast.”

“It’s the most important meal of the day.”

“Skipping meals slows your metabolism.”







We are constantly reminded that eating breakfast is important and that there’s a direct correlation between that first meal of the day and better health. But how do you fit it in? Mornings are full of rushing to prepare for the day, and before we are out the door, we are already exhausted.







But what if there was a way to raise your energy_and_
find
time to eat a high-quality breakfast? Let’s start this day off on the right track with a perfectly balanced meal in only two minutes.







The best way to get your motor running is to eat a high-quality meal within an hour of waking up. Shakes and smoothies that are perfectly balanced help you to boost your metabolism, start burning fat and balance out those moods. And when you drink a shake, you are less likely to have sugar cravings during the day and avoid the 3 pm crash.







Try these delicious recipes to increase your energy, start burning fat and start your day off on the healthy track!







To mix up your smoothies, experiment with different fruits. You can also add a banana and natural peanut butter instead of the berries and almond butter.







The Power Smoothie
1 cup of baby spinach
1 cup of frozen power berries
1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 scoop of unsweetened vanilla plant-based protein powder
1 tbsp of almond butter







Blend and voilà! A perfectly balanced meal with your fibrous carbs, simple carbs, protein
and
fats.







I recommend plant-based protein powder because whey is often full of “sneaky” sugars that could cause cravings during the day while creating bloating in a lot of people.







Have a sweet tooth but don’t want the extra calories?







Try this amazing smoothie:
The Chocolate Cherry Bomb(and it really is the bomb!)
1 cup of spinach
4 dates
1 cup of frozen cherries
1 scoop of unsweetened chocolate plant-based protein powder
1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
