What’s for Breakfast?

I’m starting a new series of blog posts of food suggestions.  Regularly in my practice, I encourage patients to look at their diets and to explore healthier options.  Eating fresher, non-processed whole foods improves health on every level!  We’ll start with breakfast.  A great way to start the day is with a nutrient-dense, energy packed smoothie.  Smoothies are a perfect breakfast food because they can be made in the morning or the previous night and are portable.  There are endless, tasty combinations to explore.  Feedback I’ve received from patients is that smoothies are satisfying because they taste good and provide energy until lunch.  Patients have expressed more energy, greater concentration, and no mid-morning food cravings! 

Pick and choose from the following list to create your own smoothie masterpiece.  It’s important to get a healthy amount of protein and fat.
