Starting the day off right, with my kitty Squee and some chocolate vegan Shakeology. 🙂
My personal recipe is one scoop of the chocolate vegan, 2 TB of Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa, 2/3 cup frozen strawberries, and 1/4 cup frozen raspberries. Tastes like dessert and it’s all of 230 calories!
My breakfast is a liquid one for a number of reasons:
- It’s fast. I frequently don’t have much time in the morning before work, and this is the fastest way I can get my nutrition. Chocolate vegan Shakeology has 170 calories, 16g of protein, 5g of fiber and is packed with probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes with only 3g of fat. Plus, it gives me my chocolate fix. 🙂 Good start for my day!
- It packs enough calories in as little as possible while being healthy and nutritious. My stomach’s not awake at this hour either, and it’s rare that I wake up hungry. But I need my fuel! This gives me the fuel I need even if my appetite in the morning is lacking.
- It hydrates me, which is beautiful because in the mornings I frequently wake up mildly dehydrated. I often find that people think they aren’t morning people and wonder why they’re groggy, tired, spacey, can’t think straight, etc. Reach for the water versus the caffeine; those are signs you could be dehydrated.
- It’s tasty! Omnomnom. 😀
