I love breakfast, and I hate to say it but if you regularly skip breakfast you are sabotaging your body. Not only does it cause your metabolism to slow down, and make you want to eat the entire pantry later in the day – it also makes you an emotional wreck!

While you are sleeping your body goes through a small ‘fasting period’ and when you rise in the morning you need to break-the-fast by having a meal. This is why it’s called breakfast and ideally you should eat within an hour of rising.

It is really important that you include protein in your breakfast meal. Cereal and toast just isn’t going to cut it if you want to feel good throughout your day.

I am a HUGE fan of smoothies for breakfast. Here’s why:

+ Easy and fast to make
+ You can add veggies in to your breakfast (and can’t even taste them – Double win!)
+ You can easily incorporate super foods
+ Loaded with water so great for hydration

There are other breakfast options out there that are high in protein, I’m just a huge fan of the smoothie because you can incorporate so many other things into it.

You’ll notice that I use Nutrimeal as the base of many of my smoothies. I’ve chosen this because it has the perfect combination of proteins, carbs, fibre and omega-3 fats to help stabilise my blood sugars and keep my belly full. It’s not like adding straight protein powder which fills you for 30 minutes and then going back to being hungry again. However, if you do have a protein powder you love, then you can use that in place of the nutrimeal I have listed.

I am a huge fan of the Nutrimeal Free which is a plant based smoothie powder that is dairy, gluten and soy free – so perfect for using as the base of most smoothies.

2 tablespoons almond butter
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tsp ground flax seeds
2 tsp psyllium husk powder ( or Fibergy optional)
2 cups liquid of your choice

Snickers Bar ( My favourite treat smoothie!) 
2 scoops Chocolate Nutrimeal
1 Tbs Peanut butter
1 Tbs Honey
1/2 frozen banana

Amazing Antioxidants
2 scoops Chocolate Nutrimeal
1 tsp cacao powder
1/2 cup berries or acai pack
1/2 banana
2 cups liquid of your choice

Bohemian Berry
2 scoops Nutrimeal Free
1 big tablespoon psyllium husk ( I use Fibergy)
1/2 frozen banana
1/3 cup frozen blueberries or any berry that you have
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 cups liquid of your choice

Tip: If you’re feeling bloated after drinking any of your smoothies it’s likely you are blitzing for too long in the blender. Add your liquid, veggies and fruit first and whiz until all combined. Then add in your protein powder last and give it a few pulses to combine. The more you let it blend the more air pockets you are creating, and it will be just like drinking air- hence the bloated tummy.
