I’m trying to eat a healthy breakfast at the moment so I am re-evaluating what I eat. So I had to start from the beginning and look at the start of the day and how I can improve the quality of my breakfast (I cried when I got rid of the coco pops). After a run on Sunday with my friend Katie (from the blog TNFashionLove) who is a great source of all things healthy food, we popped along to the supermarket to restock the kitchen with some good food! So what changes have I made? Well my day is now starting with a smoothie, (recipe by me!) which is tasty and most importantly good for me. It definitely does not taste of lawn.
What’s in it?
One banana (it helps with energy for me anyway)
Handful of raspberries
Handful of blueberries
Two tablespoons of low fat natural yogurt (I like Glenilen Farms yougurt!)
Some almond milk (a generous pour)
I dessertspoonful of flaxseed (I’m not sure what this is yet, but Katie says it’s a great source of vitamins!)
You don’t need a smoothie maker, just an old fashioned blender. In no particular order, chuck the lot in the blender and zap it. Put into a glass and drink!
PS – if you don’t have fresh fruit, buy them fresh but freeze them in freezer bags, in line with my recipe. You can blend from frozen, it’s ok!
Give it a try and let me know what you think! Bear in mind, I am not a qualified nutritionist!
