Another green smoothie. This is such an easy and delicious way to incorporate leafy greens into your daily diet, that it’s a shame not to do it. The combination options are endless, and completely customizable to your taste buds.
Spinach + banana + fresh blueberries + frozen blackberry / blueberry mix + chia seeds:
I use filtered or spring water, but unsweetened coconut water is also an option.
Another option is to sub chia seeds for flax seeds.
Breakfast has always been a touchy subject for me. Since it’s the most important meal of the day, I feel like it cannot skip it — especially now that I am a mom trying to set a good example. Yet, I have to admit, starting my day with a coffee and a water seems to work just as well until lunch as starting it with oats or omelets.
Anyway, bring on the green drink that is a low-cal, leafy addition to your coffee, tea, cappuccino or mate, and is a respectable breakfast in terms of A.M. nutrition.
Easy-peasy: kale (1 or 2 cups) + spinach (1 or 2 cups) + a choice of a banana or some pineapple chunks + water.
Drank it at 8am, followed by a 9:30 cappuccino, and it lasted me until noon.
