They say your morning mood influences the way your day shapes up and more often, if you wake up in a bad mood in the morning, it can be difficult to turn it around during the day. The same principle applies for breakfast. If you opt to ‘break the fast’ with a healthy and highly nutritious meal, you are much more likely to be set on the right track for the rest of the day.
Breakfast kick-starts your day with needed nutrients, and when you wake up the blood sugar level your body needs to get you at the height of your senses might be low.
The recommended amount of kilojoules that a healthy breakfast should provide is between 15 to 25% of the total daily energy intake. This range will vary according to the person’s age, sex, daily energy requirements and lifestyle.
Breakfast habit is not an easy every day practice for most of the people; however, adapting the food selection to individual needs will help to encourage improving this habit and keeping it throughout time.
If you ever stumbled around in the morning, frantically looking for the keys you are already holding or the backpack on your back you probably already know your focus is not very reliable in the a.m. Why not start your day with a Herbalife shake?

FIVE ADD-ONS FOR YOUR PROTEIN SHAKE
- Extra Protein
Even though your protein shake already contains protein, you might want to include more if your protein needs are high. You can add plain protein powder, of course, but you can also add foods like low-fat cottage cheese, yogurt, ricotta cheese or silken tofu to boost protein content.
- Fruits and Vegetables
Adding fruits and vegetables to your protein shake is an easy way to get more servings of these healthy foods in your daily diet. Frozen fruits and vegetables are convenient, and they give your protein shake a thicker texture.
Experiment with different fruits and vegetables, such as sweet veggies like carrots or butternut squash. And try different combinations, like pineapple with carrot, or banana with butternut squash. When you’re feeling a little bold, try adding more unusual ingredients to your shake, like baby spinach leaves or beets.
Most protein shake mixes don’t contain a lot of fibre, and most people don’t eat as much fibre as they should, so try adding high fibre foods to your shakes. Obviously you can choose a dedicatedfibre powder or go with fruits and vegetables, rolled oats, bran or seeds such as sunflower, flax or chia seeds, which all contribute fibre.
If your calorie needs are high, you can add rolled oats, nuts, nut butter, avocado or dried fruit to boost the calorie content of your shake.
Ice makes a nice addition to a shake, because it thickens up the liquid. Ice also adds volume to your shake, so it increases the portion size without adding k. A great trick for those who are watching their weight!
