How to make delicious Protein Smoothies
Your mornings are about to feel better.
Eating healthy shouldn't be difficult. It needs to be convenient, make you feel better than ever all while satisfying tastebuds. As simple, convenient and delicious solution is smoothies. Whether if it's for meal 1 or meal 3, it is up to you. We all want to feel better, we all want it to be convenient and we want it to be simple to understand what we're doing. With understanding, we can maintain it.
Smoothies are not just the ultimate on-the-go breakfast, but are a source of vibrant health, longevity and lasting energy. Adding in a serving of whey protein powder to your smoothie can keep you feeling full, satisfied and energised for longer.
Want a really creamy fruit smoothie for breakfast? Avocado's create a very creamy texture with an abundance of micronutrients and healthy fats. Banana is a great way to give that sweet creamy flavour and texture. Natural Greek Yoghurt can be a go to creamer in your smoothie.
You need 3 Macronutrients; Protein, Carbs, Fats. As long as you're putting all 3 in your smoothie, you're ahead of the game. You want a healthy protein, clean carbs and healthy fats.
Smoothies are a simple, convenient solution to get those nutrients you need and increase your health and wellbeing.
How Can You Stay Healthy?
Your body and mind needs nutrients on a daily basis from clean whole food nutrition. Smoothies are a simple way to get this done. So simple in fact that when you have your ingredients out on the bench, you'll be drinking your deliciously blended smoothie in under a minute. So simple, so efficient and very nutrient-dense.
Smoothies ensure you're going to get those nutrients exactly where they belong, in your cells. It's not only what you eat, it's what gets into your cells.
It isn't just about what food you eat but its about how much of the nutrients from the food you eat actually get to where they belong. They need to be absorbed through the small intestine and travel all the way in the cell structure, providing the food each cell needs.
This is where smoothies are helpful, as the meal you blended is ready to be digested. Normally when we eat, we may chew around 7 - 10 times before swallowing. This really isn't enough actually, we need to chew more.
With smoothies, the blender does the chewing x 1,000.
It's all broken up, ready for absorption once it hits your small intestine. Then we have some happy cells, being fed all day long. You need the building blocks which is protein. The whey protein gold standard is Life Grip Australian Grass Fed Whey Concentrate.
Happy healthy cells, means a happy healthy you. Just remember to hold the smoothie in your mouth for a moment as that's where the digestion process begins.
Your smoothie needs to be made with clean whole foods. You'll want to use clean whole foods, healthy fats and a clean protein powder, so everything in your smoothie is nutrient-dense and packed with life giving goodness to increase your health, wellbeing and quality of life.
What are Carbohydrates? These are your fruits, vegetables, honey and grains.
Now hear me out. Carbohydrates will not make you fat. Carbs are not the enemy. It's the amount of carbs in the meal that's the enemy and forgetting to add protein to the meal or smoothie.
This is where people go wrong. There's the nutritional benefits that carbs provide such as, minerals, vitamins, polyphenols, antioxidants. You cannot forget about carbs. Even keto diets do not totally eliminate carbs because we cannot live without the nutrition they provide us.
What are Fats? These are nuts, seeds, oils and avocado.
Same as the Carbs. Well your fats are not the enemy either. Fat doesn't make you fat. It's the amount of fats you have. In fact you need to eat fat to lose fat. The nutritional benefits and providing the building blocks for our brains, we need it. Every cell in our body is made from cholesterol so don't be shy.
Plus you will feel fuller for longer, have more energy and give what your brain what it needs to get through the day and rest during the night.

A smoothie each day will have you feeling better very quickly. Play around with the timing you drink your smoothie. Try one on morning or afternoon or change your usual meal times all together.
It's about having a clean nutritious meal to begin your day with clean whole foods and a clean whey protein powder.
You'll be making sure you begin the day right 365 days a year. Think about it, if you eat 3 times a day, that's 1,095 meals per year. How many of these are clean whole food nutritious meals?
A smoothie is the solution for you to make sure that 365 of these meals are clean and healthy. Now all you need to do is work on the 2nd meal of the day which will give you 365 more clean healthy meals and then you work on the 3rd meal which will give you your 1,095 meals for the year.
How many of your meals out of the 1,095 meals are from clean whole foods? Are you 40, 50, 60, 70 80, 90, 100%?
Imagine how amazing you'd feel if you made sure 100% of your meals were from clean whole foods? Imagine if you got Active 30 min a day everyday of the year? Imagine if you meditated for 20 min a day for the whole year?
