2 Delicious and Healthy Superfood Smoothie Recipes
Neglecting breakfast has become the norm for most people. Most of us become extremely busy as we prepare for our day. As a crutch, we often dash to fast food restaurants in an effort to save time, making choices that favor convenience over health. Skipping breakfast can lead to overeating during snacking, lunch, and dinner – potentially increasing one’s risks of becoming overweight or developing maladies such as diabetes.
Breakfast is our first meal after a long night’s rest, so you should take the time to choose your energy sources wisely. By eating a healthy breakfast, not only will you boost your energy level, but you will also provide yourself with the fuel necessary to jump-start your day. A good breakfast means better concentration without feeling lethargic or worn-out.
Instead of becoming the victim of the negative health effects that come from skipping breakfast, take charge by incorporating spirulina-based superfood smoothie recipes into your day. Spirulina has more protein per gram than any other food, and it is the richest form of beta-carotene available to us. Superfood smoothies are easy to make and can be conveniently stored for later consumption during work, school or play.
Here are two easy superfood smoothie recipes made with spirulina-based superfood powder and anti-oxidant- rich fruit. Either of these will leave you satisfied for an extended period of time in order to maintain energy, retain nourishment and perform any given task with efficiency.
