A Smart, Easy Way to “Sneak” Veggies Into a Healthy Breakfast

 

We all know that a healthy breakfast starts off the day right. But, have you ever thought about using veggies to make your breakfast super healthy and very satisfying?

One quick easy way to add veggies to your breakfast is by adding them to a fruit smoothie.

Now I’m not talking about Brussels sprouts or anything like that right now.

Remember, to get a nice strong lean body we all need to eat as many veggies as possible. It does so much even beyond nutrition. I will leave it at that now, or this post will get way too long.

Anyway, at my house we get certain veggies like (frozen spinach) into breakfast by adding them to a yummy fruit smoothie.

Have you tried this?

You cannot taste the spinach. I promise.

I’d like to share a couple of smoothie recipes you will find below.

Its’ so versatile, and you can make it really healthy and satisfying.

It’s wide open for experimentation. And don’t worry, it’s really hard to go wrong.

Now, to clarify, I’m not thinking about the sugar laden ones you get from the juice places around town. Although these taste super good, they are packed with tons of sugar and syrups and have very little real nutrition with tons of empty calories.

When you make your own at home it’s really fast and you can create your own master piece.

How to “sneak” veggies in to meals:
First, I really don’t like certain vegetables on their own like kale or spinach. Can you relate?

However, I know they have super nutrition so I just get creative.

Sure I eat raw spinach in salads, but cooked… I simply do not like the taste. And kale? I don’t think so!

But, when you use veggies like this in a fruit smoothie, I promise you do not taste it. Especially the spinach.

(BTW, get organic frozen spinach for smoothies. It never goes bad before you use it. And it’s important to use organic spinach. And the frozen aspect makes the smoothie nice and cold and refreshing.)

Before I give you the smoothie recipes below, you may want to check out my “sneaky” veggie ideas for dinner too. Especially if you have little ones at home who really hate veggies.

You may be wondering about the protein source in a breakfast smoothie:
No worries.

My husband and I use a super high-quality whey protein from my trusted supplement company, Prograde.
Experts say that using a high-quality whey protein powder is the most easily absorbed kind of protein.

It mixes in beautifully and adds either a chocolate or vanilla flavor.

Blueberry Burst:

> ½ cup coconut milk (from a carton, or make your own)
> ½ cup water
> ½ – 1 cup frozen blueberries
> 2 small kale leaves (baby kale is perfect)
> 1 Tablespoon raw honey
> 1 Tablespoon Almond Butter
> 1 tablespoon Prograde Protein Powder

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend. I don’t add extra ice because the blueberries are frozen. You can if you want to make it slushy.

I drink this while I’m getting ready to go out the door. It so quick and easy and I know I’m getting great nutrition.

Here’s what I make for my husband:
The Hubbie Breakfast Special
> 1 Tablespoon Prograde Protein
> Roughly about 1 cup frozen organic raspberries
> 1 frozen banana
> Roughly about 1 cup frozen organic spinach or 3 or 4 baby kale leaves
> 2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
> 1 Tablespoon Raw Honey
> 1-2 cups coconut milk (depending on how thick you want it)
> 2-3 ice cubes (or more if you want it slushy)

Add all ingredients into the blender and blend. Super nutritious breakfast!

The best part about smoothies is you can be super creative and mix and match any combination of vegetables, fruits, nuts and different liquids (coconut milk, almond milk, water).

Try it soon!
