Why is it so healthy to have a smoothie for breakfast?

I love breakfast smoothies and I try to drink one every day. Making and drinking a smoothie is one of my favorite easy to implement health recommendations. ⁣

Smoothies are quick and simple to make and they pack a ton of nutrition into one drink that nourishes your body. ⁣

Smoothies are also super easy-to-digest, giving your body a break from using extra energy for digestion and saving that energy for later use.⁣

Drink your smoothie at room temperature because cold beverages slow digestion.

Also drink your smoothie slowly over the course of 30-60 minutes because smoothies are much more filling if you do not slurp them down quickly. ⁣

Remember that not all smoothies are considered equal. Be very mindful about what you put into your smoothie.⁣

Here is my favorite go-to breakfast smoothie:⁣

Berry Green Breakfast Smoothie⁣

• 1 cup unsweetened almond milk⁣

• 1/4 cup blueberries⁣

• 1 large handful of spinach or leafy green⁣

• 1 serving of clean protein powder (2 scoops)⁣

• 3-4 shakes of cinnamon⁣

For extra healthy fat add: 1 Tbsp chia or 1/4 avocado or⁣
1 Tbsp unsweetened nut butter.

You can also add 1/2 banana for extra sweetness.

My favorite nutritional support shake protein powder is Daily Nutritional Support from Equilibrium Nutrition.

I like this protein because it was created to be a “One Stop Shop” when it came to taking a multi-vitamin, mineral, electrolyte energy blend, antioxidant, and detox support formulas. Plus, it has 15g of vegan protein from hypoallergenic rice & pea in order to make it a complete meal.
