Is your breakfast full of nourishing goodness that gives you lasting energy, vitality and a kick start to your day?? If not, then you need to make this smoothie! Breakfast is truly my favourite meal and for most of us, we are rushing out the door in the morning, grabbing the quickest, easiest and generally unhealthiest foods to fuel our body. This is a big no no! Not only will grabbing something unhealthy and lacking in nutrients make you feel sluggish, it will have you craving sugar! Starting your day with a high dose of nutrients, protein, heart healthy fats and antioxidants will keep you satiated, kick start your creative energy, get your digestive juices flowing and aid in weight loss!
Why is this Smoothie Super?
Wild Blueberries – super high in antioxidants, vitamin C and anthocyanins which help protect your brain.
Brown Rice Protein Powder – protein helps to fuel your muscles, balances blood sugar, contains fiber to protect your bowels and easily digestable
Cacao Powder – incredibly high in antioxidants (4x the amount than green tea!) and one of the richest sources of magnesium. Magnesium is involved in over 300 detoxification processes in the body. Plus it promotes cardiovascular health!
Chia & Hemp – these incredible seeds boost a high amount of heart healthy fats, provide a great source of plant based protein and support intestinal health with their high fiber content.
MCT oil – unlike other fats, medium chain triglycerides (mct) are used as fuel by your body, giving you energy! They act as a thermogenic agent which can help aid in weight loss! They also help to regulate blood sugar, keeping your insulin levels in check.
