Supplies to Make Healthy Smoothies for Breakfast
I wish I had a fancy blender, but I don’t. Don’t let it stop you from making healthy smoothies for breakfast on the regular! Our model is currently discontinued, but if I was shopping for a new blender THIS is what I would get!
2. Chia seeds
Chia seeds are great for adding healthy omega-3 fats and fiber to your diet! You can find at most standard grocery stores, also available through Amazon!
Flaxseeds are a powerful little seed that pack a punch of fiber, antioxidants and omega-3 fats! I store mine in the refrigerator. You can find at most grocery stores. Be sure to get ground flaxseed or flaxseed meal.
4. Protein powder
I am on a never ending quest for the perfect mascara and the perfect protein powder.
My TOP protein powder is this vegan chocolate variety and I just really, really like it!
I prefer vegan protein powder’s to whey protein because it’s easier on my tummy and it still has great protein! Vegan powders tend to be more chalky than whey protein powder, but I really love this one and I don’t notice a chalky flavor at all! I alternate between the Chocolate and the Vanilla flavors!
If you prefer whey protein this is a highly rated Whey Protein that I liked as well! It is rated #1 on Clean Label Project and has great reviews and is in a reasonable price range.
I’ve also used Collagen Peptides for added protein in my smoothies although it is not a “protein powder”. It’s great! I have no complaints I just like my smoothies to be a bit higher in protein and calories since I am eating them for a meal not as a snack or pre-workout.
My challenge for you is to create yourself a delicious smoothie for your healthy breakfast tomorrow! When I start my day with a healthy smoothie I know I can chase vibrance and toddlers all day long thanks to sustained energy and no sugar crashes!
