Wake up Smoothie

If early weekday morning wake-up calls have you longing for the weekend, then we’ve got just the thing to  jumpstart your morning!

Strawberry_Banana_Smoothie

This Wake Up Smoothie has protein, fiber and quality carbs—plus it’s packed with nutrients –potassium (to restore the body’s normal fluid balance after waking dehydrated), Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C (both are important to boost your mood), and more–see below for the complete list!

On mornings when we’re really rushed, we make a smoothie in a “to go” cup.  Thanks to the Nutribullet for making that “blend-and-go” so easy.  Then we simply grab a hard cooked egg (we like Eggland’s Best eggs  because they have 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs) for extra protein and to round out the healthy, satisfying breakfast –and we’re out the door! Drink up & GOOD MORNING!
