Breakfast

5 Days, 5 Different Smoothies

I think that breakfasts are the best part of my day. Seriously, I wake up hungry and I know I am going to have amazing food. Hah! Ok, but still, I don’t fully understand those who can’t make time for breakfast. 90% of the time I have my oatmeal and I am satisfied. If I am feeling extremely good then I make some pancakes. Crazy I know.

I wanted to change that up and last week I had a »smoothie week«, well 5 days if I am exact. I always had a bit of resistance for smoothies because I had in my mind that they don’ satisfy me and I will be hungry in an hour. We don’t want that right? Well at least I don’t want that. So I made myself 5 different smoothies throughout the week and they were amazing and most importantly they kept me full until my morning snack.

Want to know the recipes? Ok, here we go:

Day 1 – Spring is getting close

  • A handful of spinach

  • 1 TBS of quark (you can sub it with Greek yogurt or cottage cheese)
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder
  • 3 tsp of flax seeds
  • 1 TBS of chia seeds
  • ¼ avocado (50g)
  • soy milk (use which ever you prefer – normal to almond)
  • yogurt

I topped it with my homemade granola.

I am definitely going to try to incorporate more smoothies through the week even for snacks, as they are really convenient.
