Why settle for a bowl of cereal when you can have a nutritious smoothie bowl?
This nutritionist-designed bowl of goodness is not just brimming with nutrients, but also tastes like dessert and who wouldn’t want to start their day with a guilt free dessert?
We sneaked in a tablespoon of cricket flour for the protein content but fear not, you can’t actually taste it.
Here is what makes this super berry smoothie bowl a superior breakfast choice:
Brimming with antioxidants, berries support repair and skin health.
They are a superior source of Vitamin C which may assist with warding off that pesky office cold.
Popeye wasn’t wrong about this one: spinach truly is a superfood.
This delicate green leafy vegetable contains a good dose of Vitamins A, C, K, E, folate and the minerals magnesium, manganese and iron.
Flax and Chia seeds
Both flax and chia seeds are a plant source of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Omega 3s keep many bodily functions healthy but are especially useful for the brain and memory.
Research suggest that consuming protein at breakfast regulates your appetite and increases satiety, leading to fewer cravings later on in the day.
With cricket flour, a little goes a long way since a tablespoon contains 6 grams of good quality protein. You don’t even have to thank us for your newly fund ability to dodge that afternoon sugar craving.
