Power Breakfast Smoothie to Start your Day Right

day 2smoothie edited-2In Honor of Father’s Day today I thought I would post my most asked about breakfast idea and recipe.

A reocurring question is:  How do I start my day right given my time limitations?

Over 30 grams of protein to rev up your metabolism for the day, only 35 grams of total carbohydrates from fruit and vegetable sources, 10 grams or one third of your fiber needs for the day, 100% of your omega 3 fats for the day from the fish oil and ground flax seed, 50% of calcium needs, 80% of your Vitamin A and 70% of Vitamin C daily requirements, along with probiotics.  It does not get much better than that for your breakfast and nutritional requirements.  A great way to start your day!
