Lee’s Good-for-You Breakfast SmoothieI buy vanilla-flavored whey powder that has no artificial sweetener. The berries are high in antioxidants, and the whey powder and oil are high in proteins. Omega-3 is supposed to reduce cholesterol and coronary disease, improve the way we respond to stress, and even fight certain cancer cells.
1 cup fresh or frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc.)
1/2 scoop whey powder
1 to 2 teaspoons flax seed oil (high in Omega-3 fatty acid)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup milk
Whirl everything in the blender and enjoy.
A smoothie is also great for busy people who don’t have time to sit down and eat breakfast. It only takes a couple of minutes to prepare, and can be consumed while getting dressed and driving to the office. And it’s delicious!
So no more excuses for skipping breakfast.
Until next time,
