Being an extremely busy working professional as well as a Mom of two elementary school-aged kids, my mornings are more than hectic. Usually I simply whip up a smoothie to drive on my long way to work with me. But I often wonder, is this the best choice?
We all need and crave energy. If all you start your day with is caffeinated coffee and sugar, you will crash and either be too tired to make it through your responsibilities or simply reaching for another cup in an hour.
Smoothies are a quick alternative to a fast breakfast that can help energize you throughout the entire day. When you toss in some greens, a little fruit, and a healthy liquid like coconut water you are bound to feel energetic and ready to take on the day. Starting your morning with a smoothie also gives you well needed antioxidants which help protect your body from free radicals, and it is a great low-glycemic start. Eating a low-glycemic breakfast will help curb your sugar cravings for the entire day and it will also help with not crashing (Read about how to make the perfect smoothie here.)
