Happy New Year! This is my first post of 2019 and I’m so excited to continue bringing you all new recipes in 2019! 2018 was a huge year for me personally and professionally. A huge part of that was taking a leap of faith and starting this blog. I’m so proud of myself for committing to this blog and I cant wait to bring you more content this year.

So with that said lets get into the first post of 2019! Today I’m sharing my go to smoothie recipe. After the holidays I always want to clean up my diet a bit and get back to my normal routine of eating. I love smoothies! They are such a great breakfast option since you can pack so much heathy goodness into glass. Since I work full time smoothies are always in our breakfast rotation.

As much as I love smoothies I do take issue with a lot of smoothie recipes. Many of them are super high in sugar. In my opinion a smoothie should be sweet and delicious but not spike your blood sugar. It should have protein, fibre and a healthy fat to keep you full until lunch. And it absolutely should have greens. I try to get some greens in at every meal, but it doesn’t always happen. So knowing I will get at least one serving in before 10 am makes me super happy.

Todays smoothie is packed full or nutrients and superfoods. A breakfast full of iron, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, fibre and antioxidants. From some very delicious ingredients.

It’s a great way to start your day and you year. So cheers to a happy, and healthy year ahead!
