"So delicious, I sometimes make one for dessert!" - a happy Food & Soul client.

For a long time I skipped breakfast, for many reasons, I didn't feel hungry in the mornings, I was in a rush and "didn't have time", there wasn't anything that I felt like eating, or I'd just eat later when I felt hungry. And well those reasons seemed to be valid I didn't realize that not having something for breakfast was having a role in how I was feeling throughout the day. I was often low on energy, agitated, my anxiety was all over the shop sometimes, or I would have really big energy crashes around 2pm, not to mention the HUGE junk food or coffee cravings that came around that time.

What I've now learnt is, starting your day with a meal of 20g of protein or more can help you avoid the crazy energy swings, sluggishness throughout the day and can help you start your day with a bit more focus. The trouble is on weekdays making a solid breakfast is a bit of a time challenge for me and that's why I LOVE this Cinnamon Carrot Cake Smoothie. Not only does it taste like I'm having dessert for breakfast, but it's packed with 20 grams of protein to help keep me feeling full for longer, ease the sugar cravings, but it's also full of antioxidants to help support my body,mind, and soul!
