When my husband and I started our journey to achieving and maintaining optimal health, we began by discussing our goals. Yes, we wanted to shed fat and gain more muscle, but what really got us motivated was the lack of energy and sluggish feeling we were having on a day-to-day basis. We desired the motivation and energy it took to get up and conquer the day, an improved mood, and the ability to look our best.
Let me tell you, starting the day off with this smoothie has been the most effective addition to our new lifestyle! My husband can attest to this (who recently lost 25lbs in less than 3 MONTHS!!!!). When you start your day off right, you want to continue it for the rest of the day.
This is a nutrient packed recipe that will spike up your metabolism and get you feeling great! Try it today and let me know what you think!
¾ cup 1% milk
1 small banana
2 tablespoons flax and chia seed blend
1 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder (I use New Solutions Vanilla WHEY protein)
1 cup of spinach and kale mix
1 handful of ice cubes
Pour milk in blender first and follow with the banana (break up the banana into ½ inch slices before placing in blender). Continue by placing flax/chia seed blend, protein powder, spinach and kale mix, and ice cubes into the blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy!
