In the mornings, I’m often pulling out my blender and whipping up a healthy strawberry milkshake for breakfast. It’s a great convenient way of getting a good intake of plant based nutrients to energise and nourish my body. I often make my milkshakes or power smoothies as complete meal replacements, so I make sure I boost them up with extra nutrients such as omega 3 and quality protein. I love freezing my fruit before blending as it results in a creamier milkshake.
What’s Great About it:
Nut and seed milks are a delicious lactose free alternative to traditional dairy. Enjoying them regularly can help reduce cholesterol, provide your body with essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc and enhance the body’s immune system. Protein is considered by many to be the most important macronutrient for humans because of the numerous roles protein plays in the body. Whenever the body is growing, repairing or replacing tissue, proteins are involved. The main function of protein is to build and repair, as well as sustain muscle.
