I rarely am hungry in the early AM much less have time for a serious breakfast as I get my 3 kids up, dressed, lunches made and rush out the door for school by 7;30 AM. I start each day with either warm lemon water OR a shot of fire cider. Then after a bit I down a cup of green tea. I am a self-proclaimed tea snob so prefer to drink Japanese green tea. With all this liquid who could have room for a meal?
So a protein smoothie it is for me. I can drink it on the go in the car or at the first meeting of my day. Grab one of those super handy nutribullets for fast and powerful mix-and-go potential. I always include Dynamic Greens which is an awesome dense nutrient tasty powder. Not chalky at all. You need a clean protein powder. I use plant based ones or this chocolate one from Young Living is yummy. Then dump in 2 fistfuls of spinach. It lends no flavor and pulverizes leaving you a hefty dose of vitamins and minerals. Top off with plant milk (rice or almond), ice cubes and any nuts or seeds you want. I toss in a tablespoon of chia seeds and 3 dates for sweetness and a tablespoon of coconut flakes for flavor and healthy fat to keep me fuller longer. Whirl it all together. I LOVE my stainless steel straw and wooden lid from the MBC. This glass jar I got from my grandpa so it is old and still in circulation. This cold and filling refreshment can be a quick breakfast OR a snack when needed. YUMMY!!
