Starting the day right
The topic for this post is starting the day right.
Getting off to a healthy start first thing of a morning is so important because it establishes your mindset and behavior for the rest of the day.
If you start the day with a nourishing and wholesome breakfast, not only will you feel fuller and more satisfied, but also more motivated to continue to eat well throughout the day.
Starting the day right also decreases the likelihood of snacking and over eating later in the day.
For some inspiration and ideas on starting the day right, try:
Kickstarting your metabolism
Upon rising, have a glass of hot water and lemon each morning. Doing so helps to kick start the metabolism and re-hydrate the body after sleep. The added Vitamin C boost (from the lemon) also aids digestion and helps to alkalize our system and support detoxification. ⠀
A nourishing breakfast
Enjoy a nourishing, superfood packed breakfast like a smoothie bowl. This is how we at Health Synergy like to start most days. Usually ours will be an acai bowl, alternating between different superfood ingredients such as cacao for a chocolatey twist, or mango and coconut in the warmer months.
Pictured below is our Power Super Foods Super Berry Smoothie Bowl. Featuring Power Super Foods Acai, Maqui and Maca Powders, this dish is a delicious, nutrient packed breakfast that really helps keep your energy levels lifted throughout the day.
