Recipe

Lately I have been trying to incorporate more protein and healthy fat in my diet, especially at breakfast. Not only do I find that it provides me with a much needed energy boost, it also keeps me full much longer than a low fat or low protein meal. Although one of the easiest ways to do this is with eggs, lately I have been reaching for smoothies instead. I add hemp protein powder to my smoothies for added protein. Personally I like hemp protein because it is low calorie, plant based, and is really in high fiber compared to other protein powders. With that said, any protein powder would work or you could leave it out completely. The almond butter adds healthy fats (any nut butter would work) and the blueberries pack in antioxidants and are lower in carbohydrates compared to other fruits. All in all it’s a great smoothie for breakfast or post workout.
