As we have all been told for our entire lives, Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day! It sets the tone for your eating habits throughout the rest of the day. So, why not start the day on a great foot? Here is a version of one of my favorite breakfasts! Its easy and a little bit sweet and packed with the perfect combination of protein, carbs, and healthy fats!
Power Breakfast Granola
1Cup of your favorite whole grain granola or cereal (today I used Honey Bunches of Oats, not my usual)
1/2 Cup Blueberries (you can also use other berries or half of a banana sliced in small pieces)
2 tablespoons chia seeds (not sure what in the world these are? check this out)
3/4 Cup of Almond Milk (or lowfat milk of your choice)
1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder ( I use V-Core vanilla from my buddies at Complete Nutrition, this stuff is awesome and tastes GREAT!)
Place all ingredients in a bowl, mix it up until the protein is smooth and enjoy!
Oh its SO delicioso, AND you will have amazing energy to get you through the morning! Dont forget to pack a mid-morning snack so that you dont crash before lunch time!
