I was reading Gwyneth Paltrow’s “GOOP” blog one day and saw an article she posted about breakfast ideas and how to have a more filling morning meal.
Essentially, cereal turns straight to sugar giving you more of a crash. I love some granola or healthy whole grain cereal in the morning, it does fill me up. Variety is the spice of life, however, and so I have created some hearty smoothie shakes in the past week.
This morning I am enjoying a particularly delicious blend, including the following variety of ingredients:
1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
1-1/4 Cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 Cup FAGE Greek Yogurt (0% or 2% doesn’t matter, protein packed ingredient either way)
1 TBSP unsalted peanut butter
Pinch of cinammon
Result…OHMYGODAMAZINGNESS. Or, “amazeballs” as my mom and I would say 😉 try it out sometime! Also try adding and substituting ingredients such as avocado, coconut milk, vanilla extract, almond butter, etc. But if you use FAGE greek yogurt you don’t need protein powder, you get it in natural form!
As I would say at age 4, “Ch ch ch ch CHECK IT OUT!” 🙂 Happy Hump Day!
