If I start my day off in the wrong way I am totally thrown for a loop. My work is off and the center of my emotional balance is off. Everyone's day can start differently to make it great... For me I just need enough time to wake up, have a coffee and a healthy breakfast, get dressed and walk my dog. I can't stand feeling rushed in the morning, I certainly can't stand feeling unhealthy! I need to make sure I start it off with the best possible breakfast to set the tone. (You know those days you had sugar for breakfast and can't shake the feeling of crap all day, yeah those! Worst night mare!)So personally I need to feel confident and in control heading into whatever is waiting for me that day. Like I just mentioned, my outfit needs to make me feel great but so does my body and my health. If I ate like crap the night before... worst wake up. I taught myself a trick. It's called actually listening to how you physically feel. Head ache... probably not enough water. Cravings at night.... probably should just head to bed and dream of that healthy breakfast waiting for you.
I wake up so excited for breakfast. There is no way that it's just me.... It's one of my favourite meals. Smoothies, yogurt, coffee, eggs. We need energy to get ourselves going. I swear I've been chatting so much energy and protein recently but it's true especially as we head into the winter. My go to breakfast which is no surprise to those who follow my snaps and posts are smoothies or smoothie bowls, but I wanted to share an option to that which I recently have been trying out. I shared with you all my new love for greens+ by Genuine Health, but here is one of my new favourite recipes in hopes of inspiring you to send me some as well…. so don't be shy.
Okay here it goes;
This recipe is what I like to call a smoothie without the blend! Its similar ingredients to my favourite smoothie, but instead it’s the deconstructed version.
I pic something as the bed to the recipe, could be seeds, nuts or chia. I top this with cut up banana (could also be substituted for avocado… or both!), followed by your favourite yogurt. I like 2-3% plain greek yogurt… don’t worry about the fat content. Its good fat and protein and you won’t be consuming tons. I then usually add another small topping like flax or coconut, and a dab of peanut butter. Finally you sprinkle on greens+ by Genuine Health for your green dose and voila. Its delicious and keeps you full into the day, jam packed with energy and protein!
It's so yummy gang I promise!
