The Nom-Nom Smoothie

Updated: Jan 4

Smoothies are one of the most refreshing breakfasts on a warm summer day! However, if made with the wrong ingredients, they can leave you with a headache, feeling jittery, tired, hungry, and irritable...aka with a #sugarcrash.

In order to feel satiated, energized, and sugar-crash free it is important your smoothies are filled with healthy fats, protein, fiber, and no more than 1/4-1/3 cup of fruit. I also like to include some sort of vegetable, but that doesn't need to happen every time. I use Siggi's plain yogurt because it is high in protein and low in sugar (be careful with flavored yogurts -- a lot of brands sneak in loads of sugar!) Additionally, my favorite protein is the Vital Proteins Unflavored Collagen (you can also find this at Costco for much cheaper!)
