It’s the first source of fuel you put in your body, and it can be a step towards rocking your day with high energy and a great mood, or one towards tiredness and feeling sluggish.
The choice is yours.
Personally, I used to have a “normal” breakfast, say a bowl of healthy cereal, or a few pieces of toast with peanut butter and a banana.. I thought it was pretty good.
But then I started researching and realized that what’s considered as a normal North American breakfast is very far from optimal. It’s pretty low in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients which means that we’re not properly nourishing our cells.
The “North American” breakfast also lacks in protein, which is unfortunate because Tim Ferriss and many health experts consider having a 20 grams of protein with breakfast one of the most effective ways to lose weight.
Over the last year, I’ve set out to create what I believe the best breakfast in the world. Whatever you situation is, I really believe you can make that a part of your reality.
Some claim that they don’t have time for breakfast, while other are simply not hungry first thing in the morning.
Luckily, the Best Breakfast in the World is quick, and enjoyable even if you’re not very hungry.
From a nutritional standpoint, what does a great breakfast consist of? Chances are, you already know the answer to this.
It should be high in nutrients, balanced in carbs/protein/fat, and provide long-lasting energy.
The Best Breakfast in the world offers all that, and then some more.
What else should a great breakfast offer?
It should taste good, of course! Super-nutrition is worthless unless it tastes good.
Good news, the Best Breakfast in the World is also delicious.
Enough with the build-up… What is a breakfast that is quick, can be eaten even if you’re not hungry, that is packed with all the right nutritional elements, and that tastes great?
That’s right, it’s a (Superfoods) Smoothie!
Honestly, who doesn’t like smoothies? They’re delicious, refreshing, and can be packed with all sorts of good stuff.
I wish the power of the internet allowed me to have you sample my personal smoothie, but I promise that these things taste GREAT.
To start creating your own, it’s very easy. Just choose one (or more) in each of the following categories, throw them all together in your blender for ~30 seconds, and you’re good to go!!
1. Liquid base:
-Iced Reishi Mushroom Tea (= What I personally use. A bit more work, but it’s just ridiculously health-enhancing)
2. Frozen Fruits:
-Any types of berries
3. Fresh Fruits
-Anything else really
-Whey Protein Powder
-Vegan Protein Power (SunWarrior is a good choice)
-Pasteurized Egg Whites
5. Leafy Greens (They mix in and don’t taste anything, I promise)
That’s it! Play around with the combinations, don’t be afraid to experiment, and come up with your own delicious creation. It’s all part of the fun!
In 5 minutes of preparation, you’ve got yourself a delicious breakfast tastes good & is off the charts from a nutrition standpoint. And it’s convenient: you can have it on the spot, or drink it in your car on the way to work!
That’s why it is, in my opinion, the Best Breakfast in the World!
