Z Healthy Morning Smoothies!

Smoothies can either be super nutritious or a real diet disaster! Most typical smoothie shops load up their drinks with sugar in the form of fruits and syrups. On the other hand they leave out healthy fats and often offer poor protein options.

A REAL nutrient dense smoothie contains a balance of healthy fats, protein, and complex carbs. I even use a variety of healthy smoothies in My 14 day REAL Food REAL Fitness RESET program with the perfect balance of protein,fats, and carbs to keep you energized and full throughout the morning!

These smoothies are designed to add a protein punch to your morning and should be consumed after your workout (but can be before). Healthy fats, muscle-building protein and antioxidant-rich fruits are combined with energy-sustaining chia seeds to fuel your fitness and curb your cravings! These healthy smoothies make it EASY to eat healthy in the morning or anytime of the day!
