Easy Breakfast Smoothies for Weight Loss

Easy Breakfast Smoothies for Weight Loss

So you are looking for an easy breakfast smoothie for weight loss that you can whip up in minutes? You’ve been told your whole life that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but you’ve probably received mixed messages about just what this meal should entail over the years. The food pyramid somehow led to a childhood obesity epidemic, and people today still have a strange misconception that eating processed carbohydrates loaded with refined sugars such as cereal and toast with jelly is a nutritious way to start the day.

Fortunately, science is far ahead of the USDA, and 180 Nutrition has dozens of recipes including breakfast smoothies that can help with your weight loss plans and promoting general good health using our Protein Superfood Formulas.

Why 180 Smoothies?

The 180 Protein Superfood formula comprises 11 natural ingredients grounded into a fine powder with protein isolated from either whey (wpi) or peas in the vegan version. The resulting mixture contains proteins, fibers and fats essential to maintaining a healthy body weight, help digestive function and prevents bloating and constipation. Available in coconut or chocolate flavours, the Superfood formula can be blended into smoothies or cooked into baked goods. Best of all, the 180 Protein Superfood has no gluten and none of the chemicals that you’ll find in other protein supplements; all of our ingredients come from natural ingredients you’ve heard of and can pronounce.

Easy Breakfast Smoothies for Weight Loss

Banana Berry Protein: A potassium rich way to start the day, just add berries, water and the coconut Superfood formula.

Nourish Me Breakfast Smoothie: Blend our chocolate Superfood formula with avocado, yogurt and berries for a hearty breakfast that’ll keep you full until lunch time. Add almond or coconut milk for a creamier taste.

Ginger Snap Cookie Smoothie: Yes, this smoothie does taste like a gingersnap cookie, and it rightfully deserves a spot on a list of easy breakfast smoothies for weight loss. Mangoes, ginger, walnuts, cinnamon and two scoops of coconut Superfood powder blended with coconut water and a few other ingredients go into making this sweet smoothie the perfect solution for someone who always wakes up with a sweet tooth.

Green Cleaning Smoothie: Fresh mint and parsley leaves add a bittersweet tang to vitamin rich celery, spinach and kale when combined with coconut Superfood powder and liquids. This smoothie will set your digestive tract to peak performance for the day while giving you a flood of natural plant energy to stay focused on the tasks at hand.

High Protein Breakfast Smoothie: Whether you’re training for a championship fight or just trying to lose weight by incorporating more protein into your diet, this tincture of two or three heaping spoonfuls of Superfood plus a raw egg, yogurt and berries of your choice will kick your metabolism into high gear.

Take a look around our website for more information about the science behind the 180 Superfood formula and dozens of other recipes for healthy smoothies and baked treats!

Feed Me: Paleo Friendly Meals Delivered to Your Door

feed me real food

Angela: We were contacted by the lovely Lucy at Feed Me Real Food Co. to try out their pre-made meals with no obligation to review them (paleo friendly too). We thought why not – free lunches for the week! Jokes aside, we love everything Feed Me represent and wanted to get behind such an awesome start up business.

We honestly all loved the meals and here’s why… *Sydney based deliveries only at this time*

Their Special Difference

delivered paleo mealsThey only use grass fed, free range, ethically raised meat and poultry and wholefood ingredients. The meals always promise to be:

  • Paleo
  • Gluten free
  • Grain free
  • Dairy free

  • Seed Oil free
  • Refined sugar free
  • Chemical/pesticide free
  • Preservative free
  • Real Food

So as you can see, they align with everything that we shout about here at 180 Nutrition :)

Here was our menu for the week:

paleo friendly Bolognaise

Monday – Zucchini Bolognaise

(Pork and veal mince, zucchini, carrot, celery, onion, tomato, bacon, coconut cream, coconut oil, garlic, chilli powder, salt, pepper)

OMG I thought this was awesome. I always make bolognaise with beef mince. Really liked the mix of the pork and veal. Also had a bit of a kick from the chilli powder. The portion size was massive for me. Loved the zucchini noodles and they were really thin with a little bit of a crunch.

paleo friendly snacks

Paleo Coconut Bounty Bites

(Desiccated coconut, coconut cream, coconut oil, cocoa powder, rapadura sugar, salt)

These were really great really cold and hit the spot! I popped them in the freezer. They make for a tasty paleo friendly snack. Very easy though to eat them all at once!

 

paleo friendly chicken pesto

Tuesday – Pesto Chicken

(Chicken, brussels sprouts, pumpkin, onions, bacon, pesto (almonds, parsley, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper), coconut oil, salt, pepper, thyme)

The bacon and the pesto made this dish. I love pesto! Store-bought ones are always full of bad quality oil. Great to taste the olive oil. The portion size was good for me.

paleo friendly snacks

Paleo Cocoa-Nutty Bites

(Medjool dates, cashews, coconut, sesame seeds, cocoa powder)

Yummy and nutty and were a great little after lunch treat with a cuppa. They make for a tasty paleo friendly snack. Very easy though to eat them all at once!

 

paleo friendly indian lamb

Wednesday – Indian Spiced Lamb

(Lamb, sweet potato, tomato, onion, seasonal greens, coconut oil, garlic, salt, garam masala, coriander, pepper, cinnamon, chilli flakes)

The lamb had a good kick but not too much. I was the right side of full and the vegetables were nice and crisp.

 

paleo friendly spicy pork

Thursday – Smokey Spiced Pork

(Cauliflower, pork, zucchini or seasonal greens, onion, filtered water, coconut oil, paprika, salt, chilli powder, cumin, pepper, turmeric, cinnamon)

Another good dish. Meat was yummy and tender. Needed a bit of salt but I am a bit of a salt fiend. Cauliflower rice is always a winner in my book too!

 

paleo friendly beef curry

Friday – Beef Rendang

(Beef, coconut cream, carrot, red onion, garlic, ginger, red chilli, coconut oil, lime, lemongrass, cloves, turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, salt, pepper, cauliflower)

Great dish. As with the Smokey Spiced Pork it came with cauliflower rice. Love this as an alternative to rice. Good way to get more veggies in.

Conclusion

Feed Me is a great alternative to home cooked clean meals if you don’t have the time yourself. I would definitely use them again. I could see myself using them when my husband is away as a no hassle option for the week. Guy and Stu are running around most of the time so I can see them ordering these for weekly lunches. They are cranky when they aren’t fed well.
