Power Protein Breakfast Smoothie


Most of us lead extremely busy lives with little to no time for elaborate cooking; but to start your day right, it’s extremely important to have a good, healthy breakfast. People who have breakfast are more likely to feel healthier and energetic throughout the day and less prone to binge eating later in the day.  In fact, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

To kick start your day, make sure that your breakfast has plenty of protein. Proteins are great for building the body and repairing tissue and form the fundamental base for the majority of the positive hormones secreted by your body.

Proteins are essential for the manufacture of hormones, enzymes, immune-system components and more. Without sufficient protein, our bodies won’t be able to build cells, tissues, and organs properly; the human body also needs protein to regulate heart function, growth, tissue repair, muscular contraction and so on. It is especially crucial for athletes and people who work out regularly to consume adequate protein so that muscles that are stretched and strained during physical activity are healed quickly.

Even if you’re an extremely busy person with a packed schedule, you can easily make protein rich smoothies for breakfast, and ensure that you give your body what it needs to get off to a great start to the day. I’m sure many of you have made smoothies at home often; I’d love it if you could make this a daily habit, and add protein powder to the smoothies. Smoothies are quick and easy to make. Here are some of the basic ingredients to use for a power packed breakfast smoothie:

  • Coconut milk OR almond milk (for the base)
  • Strawberries or blueberries (for Vitamin C)
  • Avocado for healthy fat
  • MCT oil (coconut oil, for instance) to help manage weight
  • Other ingredients like spinach, beetroot, carrots, spirulina etc. depending on your specific nutritional needs
  • GX Protein powder
