Hello everyone! Feels GOOD to be here again writing for you!
I’ve been traveling for work almost every week which sometimes leaves me with very little me-time and actually that is the inspiration I used for today’s post! I usually start the week with an AM flight to Columbus and I come back home on Friday night which leaves me -again- with little to no energy to make breakfast or snacks BUT I started doing something awesome and I want to share that with you today.
There are a few companies out there that send you ready-to-blend mixtures so that you can have smoothies on the go right at the palm of your hand, however, these past few months shipping methods and times just don’t work for me so I decided to do this on my own.
Today I have for you a simple way for you to have a healthy breakfast and/or snack with no headaches, no time wasted and just with the ingredients that you like. If you work at an office from 9 to 5 or have a crazy travel schedule like me, you’ll like this one.
12 Freezer friendly containers (I’m using cardboard cups which are used to store ice-cream)
2 lb. kale (protein source).
1 lb. strawberries (sugar source).
1 lb. blueberries (antioxidants source).
2 bananas (Potassium source).
1 big avocado (Fat component).
1 green apple (More sugar source).
Acai powder (more antioxidants).
Hemp seeds (Fiber source).
Flax seeds (More fiber, we love fiber right?).
Cacao nibs (They fight the bad guys in your digestive tract plus they’re a great antioxidant too).
Protein powder (You know I’m using a plant based one, think about your digestive tract! he doesn’t like chemicals and neither should you).
You are basically chopping every ingredient and using the following formula to fill out your containers.
40% of leafy greens (kale).
20% fat (avocado).
30% sugar (strawberries, blueberries, banana, apple).
10% fiber and other powders (protein powder, hemp, acai, hemp and flax seeds).
One VERY important thing to consider is NOT to tighten up the ingredients in your container, you want to fill up every container to the very top but also keep those ingredients loose because you will need the space for the liquid!
Once you do the same thing over and over again with all of your containers, put them in the freezer.
Now, every morning after your workout and shower just take one of the containers out of the freezer, fill them with liquid (coconut milk, almond milk or even water!), pour the mixture into your blender, and then put it back in the container so you don’t have to wash two cups.
Seriously, how easy is that? As I said before, there are a few companies out there that specializes on sending you weekly pre-made containers so that you only add the liquid but I thought sharing this would be useful if you want to save a few bucks and have a little fun while looking for your favorite ingredients on the supermarket.
See you soon!
