I could write a whole book about healthy breakfasts that also go through as a kick-ass-desserts.
With berry season in full swing I noticed that my plates have been looking so girly lately. Different shades of pink, purple and lilac. Isn’t food just so stunningly beautiful sometimes?
As I have also been much more active and started to amp up my exercise routine, I found myself googling all kinds of silly questions like: what to eat before a workout? Best post workout meals…and so on. Yes, crazy. I always had a bit of objective feelings towards this kind of lifestyle, meaning I don’t like to get too obsessive around the question of what to eat, when and how much. But, here I found myself googling and of course got hundreds of contrary opinions about it. There is no right or wrong, just go with your gut and try to incorporate some healthy protein and fat into your meals.
I closed all those tabs, looked inside my fridge and grabbed what I was in the mood for. This is the result. I can approve that it will satisfy you post-workout and also without a workout prior to it. And it gives you a ton of energy for the day if you enjoy it as your breakfast. And I sneaked a beet into it. As simple as that. A healthy and most importantly tasty peanut butter & jelly smoothie – inspired by everyones favourite sandwich combo. Creamy with a hint of vanilla and lemon and just the right amount of freshness thanks to the berries. Go try it!
