5 Breakfast Superfoods That Will Save Your Waistline

Are you a breakfast eater?

Lori KennedyThere’s loads of conflicting research and opinions surrounding whether or not breakfast is the most important meal of day.

While I’m not a nutritionist, my good friend Lori Kennedy RHN is. 

She’s created the nutrition programs and recipes for my Challenge Fat Loss and 21 Day Challenge Diet Plan in addition to Turbulence Training and the Home Workout Revolution programs. As well, she runs her own weight loss company.

She’s the real meal deal where nutrition is concerned.

In her 28-Day Simple Smoothie System she shares her top super food choices that can easily be hidden in breakfast smoothies.

I use these 5 superfoods almost daily in my smoothies.

Have a read at what they are:

5 Breakfast Superfoods That Could Save Your Waistline

Spirulina: An ancient type of blue-green algae that grows in lakes around the world. It is high in protein, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, vitamin E, vitamin K, beta carotene, zinc, copper, iron, and trace minerals. Spirulina may relieve allergy symptoms because it blocks histamine production.

Cacao Powder: Cacao is a top source of antioxidants, and it contains an abundance of magnesium and iron. The antioxidants boost your immune system, which helps you in resisting colds and sickness. It’s one of my favorites to add to smoothies because it has a rich chocolaty flavor.

Chia SeedsChia Seeds: Chia is a powerful fiber that reduces the negative impact of sugars that are eaten. This means that when you add 1 to 2 tablespoons of chia seed to your breakfast smoothie it slows down the digestion of the fruit sugars, helping you to feel fuller longer and reduce cravings. This support can be beneficial for those with thyroid conditions, hypoglycemia and Type II Diabetes.

Maca Powder: The maca root was prized throughout the Incan empire for its adaptogenic-like qualities that enable it to nourish and balance the body’s delicate endocrine system, and to help cope with stress. It also energizes naturally, without the jitters and crashes of caffeine, and it can aid in reproductive function, helping to balance hormones, increase fertility and sex drive. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to your smoothie.

Hemp Seeds: These Hemptiny seeds are packed with nutrients and are especially great for vegetarians as a complete source of protein. In addition to protein hemp seeds have loads of heart healthy fats and fiber. They’ve been well researched to help reduce blood pressure, lower bad cholesterol levels, increase energy and promote fat loss. 3.5 tablespoons is equal to one portion of protein.

The bottom line is that when you start your day with a smoothie filled with fiber, protein, antioxidants, greens and fruit you will have more energy without the highs and lows, feel fuller throughout the day, think more clearly and stop cravings before they even start.

Here’s a sample of the kinds of foods you’d eat on Lori’s plan:

And now something a little personal….

Having a healthy digestive and elimination system is one of the major factors to being able to lose weight, balance hormones and stay healthy. When you don’t have a satisfying daily bowel movement that doesn’t require any effort on your part you store toxins and compromise your immune system.

We don’t want that now, do we?

Here’s a recap of the 4 foods to add to your smoothies to help improve your digestion system so you can have great bowel movements.
