I don’t know how many times I’ve heard people say, “I’m just not a big breakfast eater.”
Um, hello. Didn’t your mama ever tell you it’s the most important meal of the day? Not that you should skip any meals, but you definitely shouldn’t skip breakfast.
Do you really expect to be able to function on an acceptable level when your body hasn’t been fed since the night before? The reason (at least one reason) we eat is to provide energy and nutrition to our body. If you haven’t done that, your body’s just not going to work the way it’s supposed to. Your mind isn’t going to think straight, your body’s going to lack energy and be sluggish… and worst of all, you’re more than likely going to gain some weight.
Yep, it’s true. Studies have proven that women who skip breakfast gain weight.
I know, I know. It’s hard enough to wake up and get dressed and get the kids out the door in time for school, let alone fix a decent breakfast for everybody.
- 1 banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt *
- 1 cup whole milk *
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth and thick. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
*Simply substitute non-dairy equivalents for a vegan and allergen-friendly version.
See how QUICK that was?
And so EASY, too – only one little line of instructions. I’m sure you can handle that even before your morning coffee!
It’s CHEAP enough, I guess. I estimate probably between $1 and $1.50 for this one, depending on how much you pay for the components. Not too shabby!
And wow, is it HEALTHY! You’ve got healthy fats and protein from the milk and yogurt, more healthy fat in the avocado, plenty of fiber between the banana and the avocado, plus antioxidants and vitamins to boot! Drink it up!
