Starting your day with healthier choices will help both your mind and body

Starting your day with healthier choices will help both your mind and body

Start your day by making a healthier choice

Last few weeks we had a lot of rain here in California. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to complain.

On the contrary: I have been loving it. Nature needs it so badly here. The air is fresh and clean, the rain washes away all the dust and dirt.

What a good start to a new year. However every time it rains, I feel like eating something hearty and rich ALL THE TIME.

Like fries, pancakes or pasta (a looooot of it!). There is nothing wrong in eating that kind of things. No one ever got fat, eating pancakes once in a while, but no one also lost weight by eating a salad once at a time. It is all about balance.

If you know that something is bad for you, but eat it anyway every single time, then you made a decision. The person you are today is because of all the tiny and big decisions that you made in the past.

So ask yourself, is that WHO I want to be? A healthy lifestyle changes your body, mind, attitude and mood.

This morning for example, I woke up and craved for pancakes. Instead, I prepared a delicious, super healthy and quickly made smoothie bowl.

TO DIE FOR - I gotta say. It is interesting though, after I finished this delicious smoothie, the craving for something rich was gone...

Serves 2

BOWL

1 tbsp. flax seeds

1 tbsp. chia seeds

1 orange, peeled

1 frozen banana, cut into pieces

125 g frozen blueberries

100 g frozen pomegranate seeds

50 g almond butter

110 g almond milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

GARNISH

blueberries

pomegranate seeds

pistachios

1 tsp. agave nectar

METHOD

1) Place flax and chia seeds into the mixing bowl and blend 10 sec/speed 10.

2) Add all remaining ingredients and mix 1 min/speed 10.

3) Transfer smoothie into a bowl and garnish with extra blueberries, pomegranate seeds and pistachios. Sprinkle with agave nectar and enjoy your healthy and delicious breakfast!

Tip: I love to buy fresh fruit, clean & cut them into pieces, and freeze them afterwards. You can tell the difference - I promise!
