Pursuit of Yummy Healthy Breakfast

IMG_3737If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I post a whole lot of smoothie pictures. Smoothies are one of my go-to things to eat for breakfast. They are wonderful because they jam pack tons of really good, nutrient rich things into a yummy drink. So, I am going to give you one of my favorite smoothie recipes. (Though, I do change it up depending on my mood and what I have in the fridge. This is my ideal smoothie for when I have a long day ahead.)

Ingrdients:

one cup of water or coconut water if you prefer

Water for an easier blend, and because its always good for you. 

one chopped medium sized beet

Beets because: oxygenate blood, alkaline, stimulates liver function, antioxidants, it also gives the smoothie a BEAUTIFUL color, and the taste is oh so yummy.

a tablespoon of coconut oil

Coconut Oil because: normalize blood sugar, reduce adrenal work, increases energy, digestion aid, and helps keep you full

two (packed) cups of spinach, or one packed cup of kale

Spinach because: youthful skin, healthy blood, calcium, iron

Kale because: protein, copper, iron, antioxidants, anti-aging compounds, anti-cancer, anti-inflammation, fiber

one half of an avocado

Avocados because: amino acids, healthy monounsaturated fats and blend

one cup of frozen strawberries

Strawberries because: antioxidants, vitamin C and taste

one tablespoon of chia seeds

Chia Seeds because: helps maintain weight, aids in toning, stabilizes blood sugar, protein, omega-3′s, antioxidants. builds strong bones

one tablespoon of lemon juice

Lemon juice because: blemish-free skin, digestion aid, alkaline, cleanses body

and a teaspoon of bee pollen

Bee Pollen because: energy enhancer, protein, B vitamins, amino acids, skin soother, digestive aid, allergy treater, immune booster, and cardiovascular support


This drink will take some prep time (the beet alone will take a little time to chop), so consider that before you decide to whip this up for breakfast. Often times I make a couple of smoothies at night to last me a couple of days. Its especially helpful to have them remade when I’m having a rushed morning.

Sometimes I don’t just have this bad boy as a drink. Sometimes I make a smoothie bowl out of it. Simply add some oats to top it off, and maybe some fresh banana slices, and you have yourself a bowl.


I started to get into smoothies as meals by doing a smoothie detox. If you are interested, check out  The Green Forks detox. I also got a lot of my information about smoothies from them! Also, check out Oh She Glows, they always have great smoothie recipes!
