WHAT I EAT FOR BREAKFAST EVERYDAY // SMOOTHIE

January 14, 2019

A highly requested blog post from you is what I eat in a day. I thought I would start out by sharing what I eat for breakfast every SINGLE day and how I stay full and satisfied all day without crashing and making bad eating decisions.

WHAT I EAT FOR BREAKFAST EVERYDAY

I am a creature of habit and I like to eat the same exact thing every day for breakfast. I LOVE my protein smoothie, it’s like a dessert along with my banana pancake – this is my favorite meal of the day!

Morning Protein Shake Recipe:

I make sure to include:  protein, fat, fiber, and greens. These nutrients turn off all hunger hormones in your body and elongate your blood sugar curve which keeps you satisfied for longer. Without fat, especially, you are more likely to grab for the junk. Once I started adding all these things, I didn’t find myself hungry until later in the day around 1 or 2! I use to crash around 11 and be starving.

1 Scoop of Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder (whichever I am craving that day)

2 TSP Powdered Peanut Butter 

1 TBSP MCT Oil this kind is tasteless

2 packets of Truvia– you can add more if you like it sweeter

1 TBSP White Chia Seeds 

A handful of Spinach  – it makes your smoothie green but you cannot taste this!

1 heaping cup of ice (more or less depending on how thick you want it)

1 cup of water

Blended in a Vitamix -I only use this blender for my smoothies because it makes your protein smoothies creamy, smooth and taste so much better! Another great option is the Blendtec.  I also have tried this small bullet blender which is a great option under $50.
