Multi NutriPowder Breakfast Smoothie

Multi NutriPowder Breakfast Smoothie
By Marta Anhelush 2 months ago 2851 Views

Most of us are aware of the importance of a good breakfast. As your first meal, it can have a significant impact on your whole day! If you reach for something quick and convenient like cereal, a breakfast bar, or a croissant, you are likely to feel hungry and struggle with energy and focus an hour later, hence making you reach for either a cup of coffee or a sugary snack to get your energy up. On the other hand, if you have a filling, protein and fibre rich meal, you will feel fuller for longer, experience fewer cravings, and be able to focus better. Indeed, research shows that increasing fibre intake, especially prebiotic fibre (e.g. inulin), can have a positive impact on balancing various hormones involved in metabolism, including insulin (responsible for blood glucose balance)[i] and potentially leptin (satiety hormone) too.[ii]

It would be lovely for us all to be able to sit down and enjoy a daily home-cooked breakfast, such as a healthy ‘fry-up’ providing poached organic, free-range eggs, mushrooms, avocado and spinach. However, the reality is, most of us lack the time during the week. A well-made smoothie can be a great solution, providing us with a quick, convenient and nutritious breakfast ‘on the go’. Better still, a smoothie can be a delicious way to take your daily supplements, especially if you find it hard to remember to take them or have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules!

Our Multi NutriPowder is a worthy addition to your daily smoothie, especially at this time of the year. It provides a high dose of vitamin C and magnesium, alongside all of the B vitamins in their most bioavailable forms, making it a perfect ‘pick me up’ and ideal for maintenance immune and nervous system support.

If you want to increase the diversity of your weekly fibre intake to support the balance of your gut microbiome, you could further super-charge your smoothie by adding our Prebio NutriPowder. This product provides a comprehensive range of soluble plant fibres, including inulin, resistant starch, and fructooligosaccharides.

Your mind and body will love you for it!
