It’s my absolute favorite breakfast
If you follow me on IG, or Facebook you will know I love smoothies. Why you wonder? Well let me tell you.
This breakfast fave is a perfect way to launch your day with living energy and you gotta love the feels-so-good sensation after a yummy smoothie.
With the right blend of ingredients, these cold and creamy blends deliver both the mighty macro nutrients as well as the oh-so-essential micro nutrients! And yes, you can go with any eating style you like from plant-based to Paleo, Keto, Fodmap, AIP. etc.
You will find most all of my smoothies are made thick enough to hold up a host of toppings for color, texture, visual allure, added yumminess and yes even more nutrition power. This is only one reason however.
Another is that science has shown eating our food, as in chewing, packs its own punch of pluses.
In addition to delivering more satiety, by chewing our smoothies, we also benefit from improved digestive ability. This, my fellow foodie and healthie means we absorb more of the nutrition benefits and I'm all for this.
Keeping this post simple and to the point, below is a fab smoothie format to max out on nutrients in your morning blast. (Or whatever time of the day you choose to enjoy your smoothie). Read on for

MY SUGGESTION FOR YOU TO MAKE YOUR AM SMOOTHIE REGIME REALLY EASY:
Find 3 or 4 easy-to-make favorite recipes, keep them handy and stock up on the ingredients.
You may want to prep smoothie baggies in advance to make it super easy. All you’ll need to do is simply add liquid and blast in the morning.
Once you ace the basic essentials format you’ll be making creations of your own with whatever ingredients you have on hand. When you do please be sure to post and tag me. I love seeing what you come up with.
