Ah, the breakfast of champions.
In the video below that I shot in my pajamas, I show you how easy it is to make a fast and healthy breakfast. Many people struggle with fitting in enough fruits and vegetables into their diet. With a breakfast smoothie, you can jump start your day with amazing nutrition!
A bit about the ingredients I chose today:
Frozen berries: I always like to use frozen berries as the foundation to my smoothies. They are cold (duh!) and delicious, and full of antioxidants.
Kale: I love using kale. It’s also full of antioxidants, and also fiber. It’s full of healthy flavonoids, vitamins and minerals like calcium, lutein, iron and vitamins A, C and K. Kale is very high in beta carotene.
Beets: Although beets are great for turning your smoothie pink, beets contain phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and potassium, as well as fiber, vitamins A and C, niacin, and biotin. Beets also contain a healthy dose of folic acid.
Pears: Pears are excellent source of water-soluble fiber. They contain vitamins A, B1, B2, C, E, folic acid and niacin. It is also rich in copper, phosphorus and potassium, with lesser amounts of calcium, chlorine, iron, magnesium, sodium and sulfur.
Pineapple: Pineapple is so delicious and contains calcium, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. The bromelain in pineapple is an excellent anti-inflamatory. Pineapple is great for digetsion.
Hemp: It’s an excellent source of the Omega 6 & 3 Essential Fatty Acids. It also contains the fatty acid Gamma-Linolenic Acid which is more difficult to come by. It’s also a great source of protein, containing all essential amino acids. The brand of hemp products I like to use is Manitoba Harvest.
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for. Me, in my pajamas!!
