SMOOTHIES: A friend recently mentioned to me how shocked she was when she noticed the calories in her Naked brand smoothie. Smoothies are typically considered “healthy,” but more often than not, store-bought smoothies are sugar-loaded calorie bombs. Solution? Make your own! The key to a perfectly balanced breakfast is made up of 3 components: protein, fat, and fiber. This combo will keep you full and keep your blood sugar balanced all morning. Use the options on the guide below to create a satiating smoothie that’s low in sugar but loaded with all the right nutrients.
🥛Protein: organic pea protein, collagen protein, clean protein powder of choice
🥛Fat: avocado, nut butter, coconut oil
🥛Fiber: chia seeds, flax seeds, GG crackers
🥛Liquid: unsweetened nut milk, coconut water
🥛Flavor: cacao, berries, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, sweet potato, butternut squash, PB2
If you’re buying a pre-packaged smoothie, look closely at the ingredient list and nutrition facts. Some brands I like: @liveOwyn, @drinkApres, @Rebbl, @drinkKoia
