What Do You Eat for Breakfast? This is How My Family and I Start Our Day!

What Do You Eat for Breakfast? This is How My Family and I Start Our Day! What food is bursting with nutrition and has all the antioxidants, protein, calcium, fiber and Omega 3’s that you need to start your day off on the right foot? Hint: It is not a big plate of eggs with a side of toast and a glass of orange juice, but a Green Smoothie!

In fact, in just one of these green smoothies, you will get approximately half of your protein requirements for your day (depending on if you are a man or woman), iron, magnesium, antioxidants and Omega 3’s.

And, not only are these green smoothies nutritious, but they are also delicious! I just got back from a glorious weekend with my childhood girlfriends and although they were skeptical of my green smoothies at first, by the end of the weekend I had them hooked!

My children and I have green smoothies every morning before we started our busy days filled with work, school, homework, afterschool activities and just life! I tease my children that they have had a salad even before they get to school and I notice much more even keeled behavior. My husband and I also notice that we have such increased natural energy!

Eating a healthy breakfast is paramount to living a healthy lifestyle! Try starting your day with a green smoothie and see how much better you will look and feel! Here is our favorite family recipe:

Power Me Up Green Smoothie Recipe

3/4 of a blender filled with organic spinach (or locinate kale)

1 1/2 cups of vanilla almond milk

1/2-1 frozen banana

Frozen berries (I add these to my son’s to take away the “green-ness”

1 tbsp coconut butter or 1/2 avocado (optional)

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp Udo’s Oil (omega 3-6-9)

1 tsp maca (for added energy- we all need some more of that!)

Put all of this in the Vitamix and blend! This is my favorite, favorite, favorite morning smoothie! I make a huge batch of green smoothie for myself, husband and daughter then I will add berries to a small portion for my son who is not a fan of green. With or without the berries, though, these green smoothies are delicious!
