Start As You Mean To Go On..
Rather than start your day with a protein high in fat, sugar, and sodium that will cause you to crash mid-morning with a need for more sugars and fats, you can start your day with a nutrient-rich smoothie filled with proteins, vitamins and minerals that will help you feel fuller longer and more energetic, even mid-morning when everyone else around you is experiencing a sugar-crash.
Foods that are high in fats and sugars such as bacon and white-bread toast will leave you feeling bloated at the start of the day and lead to feeling of hunger even a mere few hours after eating. If you elect to eat foods rich in fiber and nutrients you will have feel comfortably full for hours after your breakfast due to a longer digestive process and your body’s ability to use the nutrients to boost your metabolism properly.
Breakfast smoothies are a great way to combine healthy, fiber-rich fruits and vegetable that will absorb better through the digestive tract and work better with your body’s biochemical reactions.
A Breakfast Smoothie for better health
You should combine super foods such as wheatgrass and berries along with your preferred vegetable to give your body a burst of vitamins and minerals, active enzymes, antioxidants and metabolic energy for healthy weight. The smoothies also act as a detoxing agent to remove built-up toxins in the digestive tract and liver.
You can prep the fruits and vegetables ahead of time to make the smoothies easier and faster to make every day. Your mind will feel better and set the tone, or intentions, of your day by planning ahead, too. Cut of the food you wish to use in your breakfast smoothie and place them in a seal tight container. You can refrigerate them if you plan to use them within a day or two. Or you can freeze them if you plan to use them over several days.
Try drinking a smoothie every day for 5 days. You will find that you feel less bloated and more energetic hours after breakfast instead of tired and hungry just a couple hours after a heavy breakfast loaded down with fat, sugar and sodium.
