21 Jan Energizing Morning Smoothie
This Energizing Morning Smoothie is from the ‘Master Your Morning’ section of my new 6 Weeks to Less Stress, More Sleep online program – it’s delicious, easy to make and will keep you energized, calm and balanced, and feeling full until lunch!
I love using New Chapter’s Complete Organic Plant Protein+ in my morning smoothies, as it contains a whole-food-based combination of Mung Beans & Brown Rice with organic Chia, Flax, and Pumpkin Seed for a complete amino acid profile. I always recommend a protein-rich breakfast to my clients, it helps promote satiety and healthy blood sugar balance, and protein-rich foods contain the amino acids that our bodies use to make the calming neurotransmitter dopamine(a recent study in Nutrition Journal concluded that eating a high protein breakfast was best at reducing mid-morning cravings whilst increasing dopamine levels).
New Chapter’s Fermented Maca Booster Powder is my go-to for a steady morning energy boost that helps support endurance and recovery – and is perfect for those looking for something to help them ‘get up and go’ whilst still naturally supporting thyroid and adrenal health.
