Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because what we put into our bellies in the morning influences how we feel during the day, so if you’re a ‘coffee is a breakfast food’ kinda person then this is perfect life hack for you.
Many of us operate on a routine of pure early morning adrenaline, our anxiety about the work commute, the gym dash or the school run propelling us out the door and about our activities until we hit the wall.
But it shouldn’t be enough to just get through the day, should it? Wouldn’t you rather meet and greet your day feeling energetic and alive?
Worse still, do you really want to strap yourself in on the “crave and crash” roller coaster? If your morning begins with caffeinated coffee and sugar, you will surely crash, and you’ll be either too tired to tick off your to-do list or otherwise reaching for another cup of coffee to get you through the dreaded afternoon slump.
Smoothies are a better alternative to a fast but nutritionally insufficient breakfast, keeping your energy levels high and your head clear as you journey through the day.
Simply throw some greens, a little fruit, and a healthy liquid like coconut water or almond milk into the blender, blitz and gulp for a burst of vitality and a hit of antioxidants that will curb your sugar cravings and help you avoid the crave and crash cycle.
Next time you want a quick breakfast, try a delicious smoothie that will leave you feeling energized and motivated. A morning blend of greens will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to produce energy, while naturally boosting your metabolism.
So, what kind of breakfast will you be reaching for tomorrow?
Leave your blender on the bench top for easy access every day and load up your fridge with a variety of fresh greens to blend with a dash of your favourite fruit so you can begin your busy day with a spring in your step a lightness in your belly and an undeniable twinkle in your eye.
Go get you some of that good stuff!
