To say I’ve made life changes in my everyday routine is an understatement. In the last year or so I’ve made incredibly big changes to my diet, big changes in my exercise routine, and I have made conscious improvements to my sleeping patterns. Actually my whole family has made these adjustments along side me. To me the morning is the most important part of the day. It sets the mood, creates a pace and prepares you for the rest of your waking hours. Because of this I’ve incorporated Blueberry flax smoothie into my world.
Smoothies for breakfast are a lot more beneficial than you realize. A smoothie for breakfast helps hydrate your body and keep you from giving into empty carbs. It’s also so quick and easy you can mix some up in the morning and your family can drink them before they leave or even sip it on their way to work or school.
People have this misconception that smoothies have to be prepared with a ton of sugar in order to be desired. This is not the case at all. I use greek yogurt, spinach, frozen blueberries, milk or coconut milk, and flax seeds to obtain a delicious and better for you smoothie. I start my day off strong with this 5 element combination.
Thanks to Walmart I am able to find all the ingredients I need at such a reasonable price. frozen blueberries for $3.32, greek yogurt for $4.98 per 32oz. With prices like that I can make smoothies all week, keep my family well nourished and save money at the same time.
