>I’m big on pressing the importance of eating breakfast every day. It’s so important for your body’s metabolism, for giving you energy, for keeping you full until lunch… I could go on. This summer I have been super busy, and haven’t had the opportunity to take the time to wash and cut up fresh fruits to have on hand for morning breakfasts, or to put fresh walnuts in my oatmeal and enjoy at my kitchen island before heading out the door.
In lieu of a sit-down breakfast, I’ve been making smoothies and protein shakes each day to get me going. Once upon a time, a mere smoothie was not my idea of a filling breakfast. In fact, I still couldn’t go for several hours on just some blended fruit and ice. When I started regularly adding a natural, soy protein powder to the blend, along with a little almond milk or peanut butter for consistency, I found that I was full until my morning snack, and started my day with a healthy way to “break the fast.”
So what do I put in said blends?
- 1/2 cup fresh, 100% juice (such as cranberry or pomegranate)
