It has long been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and in these times of increased stress and pressure, who could argue with that point? A great, energy-filled, nutritious breakfast is the perfect way to start the day with that ‘get-up-and-go’ attitude that is so important to the modern professional.
One of the best ways to get this breakfast boost is by enjoying Superfood smoothies. A smoothie makes it faster and more convenient to enjoy food on the go – and the fact that it can be prepared the night before saves all-important time for those who are faced with a day of deadlines.
Adding Superfoods to the Smoothie mix is a fabulous way to get even more from this delicious and nutritious drink. Superfoods are incredibly nutritionally dense – and adding this plant-based (mostly – there are also fish and dairy Superfoods) to a smoothie mix is an excellent idea for those looking to increase their energy levels. They also add to the depth of taste, add fiber, and texture – and given that there are so many Superfood options, they also add variety – and variety is excellent for those who want to avoid boredom when it comes to enjoying a breakfast smoothie each day.
Some great Superfood choices for smoothie use include the value for money options such as turmeric (trusted for hundreds of years to treat inflammation), ginger, and leafy greens such as kale, spinach, Swiss chard, Collard greens, Dandelion greens, and Romaine Lettuce.
As far as seeds are concerned, both Chia and Hemp seeds are great choices. Both supply omega-3 acids, fiber, and magnesium. Flax seeds also provide a tremendous energy boost.
To add a depth of flavor, add Cacao in the form of powder or butter is a welcome addition to any Superfood smoothie. The smoothie options are almost endless when it comes to Superfoods. Ask a salesperson at your health store – or make your own choices during your regular grocery shopping. You’ll be glad you did.
