My default in the morning is a bowl of multigrain cheerios. And while that certainly isn’t the worst possible thing to eat for breakfast, it basically has no nutritional value.
On days that I choose to make a smoothie for breakfast, I’m always happier and fuller for much longer! All I need is to take a bit more time to prepare and make sure I have all the ingredients to set me up for success every morning! And on days that I have a tough work out, I’ll make some egg whites to go with a smoothie and I’m full until lunch!
Justin and I took the plunge into the world of a Vitamix and it’s been a great investment so far. The kids love smoothies, and that’s such an easy way for me to sneak vegetables into their diets! So, I throw all the ingredients listed below into the vitamix and blend until smooth!
Quick and Easy Breakfast Smoothie
1 tsp chia seeds
2 cups fresh spinach
1 cup almond milk
Do you have a favorite breakfast smoothie recipe? I’d love to hear some other recipes in the comments!
The smoothie cups are actually coffee cups that I found on sale from Target!
