Day 5: Most Important Meal of the Day

January 18, 2018

I’m sure you have all heard your mother say that breakfast is the most important

meal of the day! Despite that advice (sorry mom!) you don’t need to eat first thing in

the morning to activate your metabolism. When you wake up, your body is in a

ketogenic or fat burning state. If you interrupt that with a sugar and carbohydrate

loaded breakfast it can cause you to put on those extra calories as fat.

 

Ideally it is best to break your over night fast after 12-16 hours of not eating. That

means eating nothing for 12-16 hours after your evening meal. For example, if you

ate your dinner at 6p.m. you wouldn’t eat breakfast until 8 or 9 a.m. the next day.

This not only helps to cleanse the body but also allows you to burn more fat and to

produce human growth hormone along with all of it’s healing properties.

To keep the body in its fat-burning state it is best to consume a breakfast rich in

healthy fats and protein.

 

I have chosen to share a smoothie bowl recipe that is designed to do just that! There

are a few carbs in the banana and pineapple but it is balanced with addition of ripe

avocado, fresh baby kale, spirulina, coconut milk, and sun warrior sprouted protein

blend. Vanilla Sun Warrior Protein is sweetened with stevia which eliminates the

need for added sweetener. You can top it with fresh or frozen berries, a tbsp. of

hemp seeds or other nuts, or even a sprinkling of your favorite granola. I make a raw

dehydrated granola made with buckwheat and almonds, both high in protein.

 

Pina 'Kalada' Smoothie Bowl

Serves 1

- ½ cup canned or fresh pressed coconut milk ( To make fresh pressed coconut

mik, blend 1 cup of dried coconut with 1 cup of water on high in a blender.

Squeeze through a nut milk bag, makes 1 cup)

- ½ of a frozen organic banana

- ¼ cup frozen pineapple

- 2 ice cubes

- 1 cup of fresh baby kale

- 1 scoop of Vanilla Sun Warrior Sprouted Protein Blend (available at

Nutters)

- 1 tsp. spirulina

- ½ of a ripe avocado

- 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. It should be the

consistency of soft serve ice cream. Spoon into a bowl and top with desired

toppings!

- a Tbsp. of hemp seeds

- a Tbsp. goji berries

- fresh or frozen berries
