Power Breakfast Smoothie

Mornings around here start at 4:30am. Actually about 4:33, when the coffee pot finishes brewing ;) So far the 5am gym workouts have been going great! By the time I arrive at work, I’ve already been awake and active for hours and starving for breakfast! A healthy breakfast does more than quiet a growling tummy: it keeps you alert and focused, kick starts your metabolism and helps you say no to temptations like the break-room donut box. But you’ve heard all that before!

Yesterday’s breakfast-to-go was a homemade smoothie. Throw some fruit in a blender and you can’t go wrong:

On this particular morning I did a strength workout, so protein was important. That came from the yogurt, spinach and flaxseed! Flax seed also contains Omega-3’s (the good fat) and fiber. Spinach adds some iron to mix, and cinnamon helps curb your appetite. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory! Basically, you can rest assured you’re getting a quality breakfast with these goodies in the blender. :)

*This smoothie combo is a favorite of mine from the original post here.

  1. I love smoothies after my workouts! I have also added green tea in the mix and it is especially delicious with a nice boost. :-)
