Breakfast or break-fast is the most important meal of the day. We haven’t eaten all night and it’s time to reawaken our digestive system. Sometimes breakfast doesn’t get the attention that it deserves though. What we put into our bodies directly affects the way we feel and how we start the day will determine if we feel energized or if we’re dragging. So if you are a skip-breakfast-and-grab-a-coffee type of person, then this is definitely for you.
It’s easy to want to grab a quick bowl of cereal or even forget breakfast and just get through the morning on 1-2 cups of coffee for the energy needed to survive the day. However, If you begin your morning with caffeinated coffee and sugar, you will crash and you will be either too tired to make it through your responsibilities or you will be reaching for another cup of coffee and something sweet to get through a few more hours.
I have never been a morning person and I try to sleep as late as possible. If you don’t have time for breakfast, I get it. Smoothies are a quick alternative to a crappy breakfast that can help energize us throughout the entire day. When you toss in some greens, a little fruit and a healthy liquid like coconut water you are bound to feel good. Starting with a smoothie also gives you well needed antioxidants which help protect our bodies from free radicals and it’s a great low glycemic start. Eating a low glycemic breakfast will help curb your sugar cravings for the entire day and it will also keep you from crashing.
Next time you want a quick breakfast, try a delicious smoothie that will leave you feeling energized and motivated. A morning smoothie will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to produce natural energy and boost your metabolism. Don’t have time to make it in the morning? Make it the night before and keep it covered in the fridge. I just put the whole blender container in there or put it in a mason jar with a lid for a grab and go. Want some smoothiespiration?
