The healthier I eat the easier it becomes to eat healthy.  A few years ago my morning breakfast consisted of either cereal or eggs and some kind of breakfast meat.  Times have changed, now I eat nearly 100% vegetarian and I opt for a lighter healthier breakfast.  My breakfast of choice is simply a healthy breakfast smoothie with all my favorite fruit and vegetables.

Once I discovered juicing and smoothies there was no going back. Now I prefer to start my day with a healthy breakfast juice or smoothie.  I discovered i’m less bogged down, I have more energy, and I eat less food throughout the day.  When making my morning smoothie I usually don’t adhere to a specific recipe, but instead I toss whatever fruit and veggies I have on hand into my Vitamix Blender.  The secret to a good smoothie is to use some frozen fruit or to add a few ice cubes.  I prefer to use a small handful or Organic frozen blueberries in my breakfast smoothie.  Here is my favorite smoothie recipe, but remember, any ingredients will do as long as they are fresh and organic.

Health “so called” gurus constantly repeat the mantra, “always eat a big breakfast” or “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”  Hearing this health advice since I was young had convinced me to always eat a large breakfast, sometimes even when I wasn’t that hungry.  Overtime I’ve learned to listen less to what others say, but instead listen to what my body is telling me.  I’m usually not hungry first thing in the morning, but I would always eat a big breakfast anyways.  This routine left me feeling bloated throughout the day.  I noticed that if I ate a big breakfast, I would eat big and usually unhealthy meals for the rest of the day.  I found if I skipped a big breakfast and instead had a healthy morning smoothie, I felt more energized and would eat smaller portions throughout the day.

Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Ingredients

  1. Organic Cucumbers
  2. Organic Lemon Slices
  3. Organic Red Apples
  4. Organic Bananas
  5. Organic Frozen Blueberries
  6. Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

The base ingredients used in my healthy breakfast smoothie were organic cucumbers, organic lemon, organic red apple, organic banana, organic frozen blueberries, and Bragg’s raw Apple Cider Vinegar.  As I mentioned earlier, if you don’t have access to any frozen fruit you can just add a few ice cubes at the bottom of your blender.  I also add between 1/2 cup and a full cup of water before I start blending.  The amount of water you add will determine the consistency of your smoothie in the end.

My final ingredient to my super-healthy morning smoothie is Sunfood’s Raw Organic Superfood Smoothie Mix.  Sunfood’s delicious nutrient filled smoothie mix is organic, raw, non-gmo, vegan, gluten-free, and tastes amazing!  Sunfood’s smoothie mix is basically a mixture of 15+ different superfood powders, inlcuding Acai Powder, Chia Seed Powder, Maqui Berry Powder, Goji Berry Powder, Maca Powder, Cocao Powder, Camu Camu Powder, Lucuma Powder, Pink Himalayan Salt, and many more.
Blend Your Fruit and Veggies in your Vitamix Blender

Once I have all my ingredients in my Vitamix Blender I blend for approximately 30 seconds.  If your produce does not properly mix together add more water.  The next step is to either refrigerate or enjoy your healthy breakfast smoothie.  For those seeking an even healthier smoothie try adding flax seed oil, olive oil, coconut, or hemp oil.
