A Breakfast that won’t Disappoint!

To be honest with you guys, I’m not a morning person. So getting up early in the morning to prepare breakfast before heading out is not my thing. However, since I embarked on my healthy eating journey I have seen and experience the benefits starting the day with a healthy breakfast. Eating a leftover pizza and drinking a diet does not equal the term “healthy.”  Eating a healthy breakfast is good for you because it gives you energy through out the day and prevents you from eating too much during the day. Try your best to eat a breakfast that is full of protein and fiber. If you are not really a morning person like me, chances are you don’t have enough time in the morning to prepare a healthy breakfast. So what do you? You make a smoothie. Yes, I know this isn’t breaking news or tip of the century. But it is an important and easy solution. For those of you who are always on the go, a healthy smoothie is the way to go. Smoothies are filling and take little time to make. I practically make smoothies everyday. If I don’t have it for breakfast, I have it before or after my workouts. I have so many smoothie recipes that I enjoy making but here is one of my favorite:

 

Strawberry Mango Smoothie:

Ingredients:

1 cup of chopped mangos

1 cup of chopped strawberries

3/4 cup of non-fat Greek yogurt

1 cup of ice

1 tbs of vanilla extract (optional)

 

Directions:

Add 1 cup of ice to blender

Then add chopped strawberries, mangos, non-fat yogurt

Blend till smooth

Enjoy!

 

Let me know what you guys think. Are smoothies the way to go or nah?
