Coming this summer, I will be adding posts about my self care practices and why they are so important to me. I intend on discussing self-love and many ways to show yourself that love. One way to show myself love is through eating nutrient dense food that is also delicious and brings joy.

Why do I love smoothies as or part of a breakfast?

1. They are delicious! This is number one because in order for a meal to be satisfying to me, it has to be delicious. And while fueling my body with nutrients is so important, giving my body satisfying and yummy food is just as important to me. If you are having problems creating an awesome smoothie, no worries. You may just need to alter the proportions of the ingredients. Adjust the amount of fruits and veggies for your tastes. My main tips are: flavor wise add an acid (lemon, lime, orange juice) and a pinch of sea salt. Banana and avocado are great additions that make a smoothie creamier. Watch how many superfoods and powders you add, as they drastically change the flavor. Lastly, in order to keep you full, make sure a meal smoothie has protein, fat and fiber in it. Check out one of my recipes.

2. They are full of nutrients! They give me energy and keep me full! Hello protein, fiber, fat, veggies and fruit!

3. I get to hide veggies in them (frozen greens, frozen cauliflower or frozen zucchini). I say “hide” because you can’t really taste them (depending on the amounts of the ingredients).

4. They have lots of fiber in them (hello veggies, fruit and chia/flax). And lots of fiber = 💩
