Breakfast Smoothie with Strawberries, Blueberries & BananaMy personal time has been extremely limited these past few weeks and to say that I’m “on the go” is an understatement. Breakfast, what’s that? You mean a spinach and mushroom egg white omelet with a side of turkey bacon and glass of freshly squeezed orange juice? While that all sounds lovely, I’ll stick to my breakfast in a cup. Plop, plop, blend, blend, and chug. That’s more like it these days.

All kidding aside, I wanted to share this with you for two reasons. If you’re a busy parent with screaming kids, soccer games, and after school activities this might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Corporate robots, I haven’t forgotten you either. Trust me, I was there once too. continue reading

Morning Berry SmoothieLet’s face it, the American diet is terrible. Rarely do any of us eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables; instead, we reach for what’s quick and easy—packaged food and fast food—which have been so over-processed that their nutrients have long been destroyed. The reality is, we’re running our bodies on empty. WE NEED MORE FUEL, GOOD FUEL. Not empty-calorie junk.

For the past week, I have been adding a superstar ingredient called Shakeology into my morning routine. Who knew that breakfast smoothies like this Morning Berry Smoothie could have so much fuel and power?!! In just 7 days, I have lost 2 pounds and have had more energy than I know what to do with!

Banana Almond SmoothieBy far, this is one of my most favorite combinations — bananas & almond butter or peanut butter! Yum! This Banana Almond Smoothie is super delicious, healthy and incredibly easy to make. I hope you guys like it just as much as I do! Let’s check it out…

Food For Thought — I used East Wind Almond Butter. It is made from Mission variety almonds. Their buyers secure the best tasting almonds from mature groves in northern California. They never purchase almonds sprayed with PPO and their growers provide certificate of analysis to ensure the quality of the almonds.

BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIEMy morning booze — Blueberry Protein Smoothie. Nom. Nom.

Here’s what’s up — Packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, these tiny gems are also high in potassium and vitamin C, making them the top choice of doctors and nutritionists. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they are also anti-inflammatory. Anti-aging superstars, blueberries are loaded with antioxidants, especially anthocyanins, which have been shown to improve vision and brain function. Studies show that eating blueberries slows impairments in motor coordination and memory that accompany aging. These gorgeous berries also reduce inflammation, which is inextricably linked with virtually every chronic disease from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, to diabetes and heart disease.
