Why Are Smoothies Essential For Breakfast? (and even lunch too)

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and sometimes it just doesn’t fit into our schedule the way it should.

How we begin the day will determine how the rest of the day goes. It will determine if we feel energized or if we feel dragging with a lack of energy.

What we put in our bellies is directly related to how we physically feel. So if you are a skip breakfast and grab the coffee mug morning person then this blog is totally for you.

We all need and crave energy. I know I do!

Sometimes it is so easy to want to grab a quick bowl of cereal or even forget breakfast and just get through the morning on 1-2 cups of coffee for the energy needed to survive the day.

I don’t want you to just survive through the day though; I want you to thrive through the day.

I also don’t want you to go on the “crash and crave” roller coaster for the entire day. If you begin your morning with caffeinated coffee and sugar, you will crash, and you will be either too tired to make it through your responsibilities or you will be reaching for another cup of coffee to get through a few more hours.

Smoothies are another quick alternative to a fast breakfast that can help energize us throughout the entire day.

When you throw 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.

Here on Green Thickies we also take this one step further by turning our smoothies into complete meals.  To do this we add a healthy natural protein source such as nuts or seeds and a healthy filler such as oats.  Making your smoothie a complete meal will take your smoothies to a whole new level.  You can read more about Green Thickies and get The Basic Green Thickie recipe here.

Starting the day with a smoothie also gives you well needed antioxidants which help protect our bodies 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.

Next time you want a quick breakfast, try a delicious smoothie that will leave you feeling energized and motivated.

A morning smoothie will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to produce natural energy and naturally boost your metabolism.

Having 2 smoothies (Green Thickies) every day is my secret weapon to consistent and sustained weight loss and I have been doing it for about 7 years now! 

And sometimes, you may feel in need of something to chew, to sit down and eat with a spoon – well what you can do, to get the goodness of smoothies and still get that chewy texture is make a smoothie bowl!

All you do is pour your smoothie into a bowl and top it with healthy, chewy or crunchy ingredients such as :

So, what are you reaching for tomorrow morning? I know I will be pulling out my blender and getting ready for some long lasting energy.

And once you realise how good you feel drinking a complete meal green smoothie for breakfast, it won’t be long before you’ll be replacing your lunch with them too!  This is how I eat 5 days a week and during those 5 days my energy is through the roof.
