My belly likes a lot of things (it’s embarrassingly tolerant) but lately I’ve found that breakfast is not one of them.
Even a cup of bone broth in the morning was making me feel pukey (thanks to the kind reader on facebook who suggested having a glass of lemon water beforehand – it helped).
Like the rest of me, it takes my digestive system a bit of time to get fully operational in the mornings.
That’s why I’ve started to suck down smoothies before starting the day. They’re quick, nutritious and much easier to eat than a full meal of eggs.
I’m not given to hyperbole usually but this gets the title of ‘power’ smoothie because it gives you superpowers.
It’s full of goodness though – protein in the form of plain yoghurt (full fat please!) and healthy fats in the form of avocado, coconut oil and nut butter.
Oh and it tastes all kinds of yummy too.
