Hello my lovely readers!
Today I have a special guest post for you, straight from two of my former classmates who have quickly become holistic nutritionists extraordinaire since their graduation. Maddie and Nadya have put together an amazing program called Your Breakfast Revolution. It’s all about optimizing the first meal of the day to change the way you look and feel! It's not a vegan program (but it is vegetarian! and grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and with nut and dairy-free options), but it is very holistic in nature and full of wonderful advice. I am so excited to have them sharing a recipe here today for their Get Up Smoothie. I hope you’ll all check out their program and the wonderful work these ladies are doing. I know both of them personally and I have to say they are 2 of the most beautiful and inspiring people I know.
Morning smoothies are a great way to start your day right! They are a quick, easy and delicious way to have a healthy breakfast. You can enjoy smoothies before or after your morning workout, at home or on the go. Blending ingredients into a smoothie allows the nutrients to be easily absorbed because they have already been broken down. We encourage the use of healthy, nutrient-dense foods that will nourish your body, give you energy and taste great. This smoothie will definitely put a smile on your face in the morning!
Get Up Smoothie is high in good fats and protein. This will give you steady energy in addition to balancing your hormones and blood sugar. Fat and protein are very satiating foods, allowing you to stay full which will help you avoid the unwanted cravings and mood swings. Get Up Smoothie has high amounts of minerals like Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Iron. Those minerals are vital for your bone and muscle health, nervous system function and building of red blood cells. Get Up Smoothie is also high in vitamins and antioxidants that will boost your immune system and metabolism.
