Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast Smoothie

There is nothing like a new year to motivate me to clean up my eating habits especially after too much sugar in December. We had a lovely holiday, and I was mindful of how much I was indulging but couldn’t resist entirely.

Like most of you I am working on eliminating inflammation in my body on a daily basis. I have arthritis in my neck and a very curved spine so it is a top priority for my wellness. The most successful way for me to reduce inflammation is cutting out sugar and alcohol, boo hoo. Seriously though when I eliminate these two things I feel remarkably better.

I also add in many things to my diet that help reduce inflammation including pineapple, cherries, spinach, berries, oats, wild salmon, turmeric, spirulina, beets, and eggs to name a few. For a full list click this link.

I eat at least one anti-inflammatory food in each meal every day. This morning I whipped up this delicious smoothie for breakfast and ate a boiled egg as well.



This smoothie has frozen pineapple, cherries, and spinach as well as a whole navel orange, ½ frozen banana, and frozen coconut meat. I often add spirulina to my smoothies for an extra boost of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits.




Try this smoothie out or adjust it with ingredients that you like and have on hand.



I wish you a healthy and happy 2018!
