I have a confession to make....I've gotten lazy and I have put my eating habits on the back burner. Between moving and working, sick kids and various other stresses and emergencies this past month, I can honestly say I have fallen off the wagon, or at least my wagon. But now that I'm on the verge of catching this nasty bug that's been hanging around my house, I've decided I need to get back into the groove of staying healthy by eating healthy. With most of my kitchen stuff packed and crazy mornings before school, I haven't been eating the best breakfasts and I've even skipped a few. So that's what I'm starting with today. An easy quick breakfast I can have on the go when I don't have time to make a proper one. Luckily, working in a Naturopath's office has some great benefits, one of which is being exposed to some pretty amazing products. I found 2 powders in the shop that I thought would work perfectly for me in the morning.
First is Greens First Berry; a nutrient rich super food powder.
And then comes the ND Shake for Women; a professionally formulated women’s multivitamin with a blend of 18g plant protein, greens, super fruits and fibre, plus nutrients specific to women’s health such as cinnamon for blood sugar balance, calcium for bone health and cranberry for a healthy urinary tract.
So here's what I came up with:
Quick Protein-Packed Super-Food Breakfast Shake
- 1 level scoop of Greens First Berry
- 2 rounded scoops of ND Shake for Women
- 1.5 cups filtered water
- 1/2 cup Almond-Coconut Milk
Place all ingredients in your shaker cup and get mixing. I don't have one so I mixed everything in a Mason Jar.
I was truly impressed with how it turned out. It was smooth and sweet with a lovely fruity taste. Not even a trace of green or swampy flavour from the greens. My shake tasted surprisingly familiar...almost like Strawberry Fig Newtons. Mmmmm!
The best part is it's vegan, gluten-free and totally filling. I had my shake about 7:45am this morning and it kept me going all morning and now at 12:30pm, I'm not yet hungry.
What's your go to breakfast on the run?
