53 Healthy Breakfast Smoothies That Keep Your Eating Habits On The Right Track
You’ve probably noticed that people are raving about having smoothies for breakfast. Perhaps you are wondering what the hype is all about and if it’s time to start blending in with the crowd.
Breakfast smoothies are a great way of making sure that you’re getting the right amount of nutrients in every meal. Most recipes call for raw fruits and vegetables.
Raw foods are highly beneficial for good health. They are full of essential minerals, vitamins, and enzymes that are not destroyed by the cooking process. Smoothies then could be the proverbial fountain of youth.
Another big plus is that it is so easy to prepare breakfast smoothies; you could do it half awake. You just need to have all the ingredients ready, place everything in a blender, blend, and pour.
Since we’re on the topic of breakfast, I cannot emphasize enough that eating your morning meal is essential for overall good health. Alas it’s also an all-too-common occurrence that breakfast is the meal that is more often skipped.
Well, you shouldn’t skip breakfast. Because by doing so, you make yourself vulnerable to poor eating choices later. As your energy begins to flag at midday, chances are that you’ll be tempted to consume more caffeine and sugary foods to keep going.
We are all aware that this can lead to unhealthy weight gain and higher risks of diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, to name a few negative consequences. I would not wish those on you.
To keep you on the right track in your eating habits, here are 53 handpicked recipes for healthy breakfast smoothies. They are all delicious, easy to prepare, and loaded with the essential healthful nutrients you need to start the day right.
