Green smoothie


- Ice cubes
- Baby spinach
- Blueberries
- Strawberries
- Grapes
- Banana
- Peanut butter
- Handful of old fashioned oats
- Cinnamon
- Milk

My breakfast/day starter for the next one week will be.... this. Real good, plus you get the nutrients without the compromise of taste. Maybe it might not suit the tastes of others but  you'll never know till you try!
People might cringe at the thought of oats and spinach in a smoothie but trust me, the spinach does nothing but gives its colour and nutrients and the oats? I almost puked when I ate a cooked cup of oatmeal under the fire but this variant is yummy.
Definitely the best breakfast so far when you're on-the-go or just too lazy to chew in your state of half-awake/half asleep, just dump everything into the blender and drink! This takes no longer than 5 minutes to make, including the washing of fruits to the blending.
Why drink smoothies for breakfast? This baby gives you protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and the cinnamon helps in lowering blood sugar and spiking your metabolism in the morning, prevent after meal sleepiness. Did you know that protein in the morning keeps your body from breaking down your muscles for energy = no drop in metabolism? Muscles play a part in metabolism, which is why your male friends eat twice as much as you and never get fat.
The best combination is to drink a cold cup of water before this, fills you up more, and cold water spikes metabolism too!
