This is what I have for breakfast.
Looks like a common green smoothie, doesn’t it?
It is, but let me share with you the 3 KEY ingredients that make this easy to make smoothie a fat incinerating morning smoothie.
Fat Torching Ingredient 1#
Protein Powder – 40 grams per smoothie
Why is Protein Powder so important?
Protein powder feeds your lean muscle mass. The more lean muscle mass you have, the faster your metabolism. A fast metabolism means ‘good bye fat and hello lean body’.
I have recently started using Arbonne Protein Powder and love the texture and taste.
Fat Torching Ingredient 2#
Ceylon Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
Did you know by adding Ceylon cinnamon to your smoothie keeps your blood sugar low for up to 6 hours? This is fantastic news for diabetics but also great news if you are trying to lose weight.
Why? I hear you ask.
When your blood sugars spike, sugar enters your blood stream. If you do not use this sugar as energy, you release insulin that cleans up the sugar from your blood stream and dumps it; you guessed it, in your stomach. Belly fat a problem? Why not try this simple trick.
** Please note that it must be Ceylon cinnamon. There are different types available and some if consumed in large quantities can be toxic. I buy my Ceylon Cinnamon from www.iherb.com. If you use my referral code of WIK922 you will receive a discount off your first order.
Fat Torching Ingredient 3#
Coconut Oil – 1 Teaspoon
Coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid and will speed up your metabolism approximately 33% faster than protein.
This is GREAT NEWS for us girls (and guys) wanting to keep ourselves lean. Coconut oil has so many benefits to our health it sends a girl like me into excitement mode (it doesn’t take much). If you want to check out how great coconut oil is, click here for my blog and expect to be dazzled with information that will probably excite you too.
The extra special ingredient that keeps me healthy
Arbonne Greens Balance
Each scoop of the Greens Balance is the equivalent of one serving of vegetables. The vegan-certified fruit and vegetable based formula features Arbonne proprietary blends of Greens, Yellows, Reds and Blues plus an Omega-3 Seed Blend from chia, flax and quinoa.
Ok so besides the obvious health benefits received from what I just wrote, the other ingredient that hits me is inulin.
Inulin gives your body fiber and best of all acts as an appetite suppressant. Happy days if you don’t want to overeat during the day. Inulin will keep you regular and not raise your blood sugars, just another added bonus
I mix my smoothie together with a cup of skim milk but if you do not drink dairy, why not mix with almond milk or soymilk?
In my experience, kick starting your day the right way helps you stay on track and have lots of energy to focus on what is important to you.
Enjoy! And of course I would love to hear what you think. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
