I am often asked what I eat for breakfast every morning, so here it is folks...I love starting my day with a liquid feast. It's not that exciting but it tastes delicious and gives me a great boost of energy while packing in some much needed vitamins, minerals and protein for the day. After all break-fast is literally breaking your nightly fast.
Here's my daily morning routine:
I usually start with a huge glass of water followed by a hot cup of yerba mate with a few drops of liquid stevia and then bust out the Vitamix to make this superfood shake. The banana and almond extract can hide the sometimes overly green taste that can accompany various green powders. I prefer to use Dr. Schulze "Superfood Powder". It's very high quality, 100% organic, vegan, raw and has tons of B vitamins and 6 grams of protein per serving. Plus, the taste is pretty mild compared to most green powders although it still may take a little getting use too. So instead of your smoothie tasting like someone just dumped a bag of lawn clippings in your mouth, try this shake and cheers to good health and vitality without gagging. Drink up!!
