How we begin the day will determine how the rest of the day goes. It will determine if we feel energized or if we are dragging with lack of energy. What we put into our bodies is directly related to how we physically feel.
So if you frequently skip breakfast and grab the coffee mug instead, then this blog is totally for you.
We all need and crave energy. I know I do! Sometimes it is so easy to want to grab a quick bagel or even forget breakfast and just get through the morning on 1 or 2 cups of coffee -- looking for energy to survive the day. But I don't want you to just survive through the day, I want you to thrive through the day. I also don't want you to go on the "crash and crave" roller coaster all day long!
If you begin your morning with caffeinated coffee and sugar, you will crash, and you will be either too tired to make it through your responsibilities or you will be reaching for another cup of coffee to get through a few more hours.
Smoothies are a great alternative for a fast breakfast that can help energize us throughout the entire day. When you toss in some greens, a little fruit, and a healthy liquid like coconut water you are bound to feel
energetic and ready to take on the day. Starting the day with a smoothie also gives you important antioxidants which help protect our bodies from free radicals and it is a great low glycemic meal. Eating a breakfast low in sugar will help curb your cravings for the entire day, and it will also help prevent that mid afternoon crash.
The next time you want a quick breakfast, try a delicious smoothie that will leave you feeling energized and motivated. A morning smoothie will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to produce natural energy and naturally boost your metabolism.
So, what are you reaching for tomorrow morning? I know I will be turning on my blender and getting ready for some long lasting energy.
