Lori Thayer's Optimize Your Life
All of these ideas sound great! I usually start my day with a smoothie as well — usually frozen berries, a little orange juice, flax seed, a handful of spinach, & a scoop of Juice Plus Complete — they taste great, are filling enough to get me through until lunch time, and nutritious! Plus, even though the spinach may change the color, it really doesn’t change the taste much! Thanks for sharing your recipes!
@janditheis Sounds great. There are so many options for smoothies. It really is the perfect on-the-go breakfast.
That smoothie recipe sounds great! I’m a huge fruit/veggie smoothie advocate so I naturally loved this post By the way, if you were to add a huge handful of fresh baby spinach to that smoothie, you wouldn’t taste it one bit and you’d get a couple servings of greens. Thanks for the awesome ideas!
I don’t know why it’s showing me as Kennalyn. This is McKenna Gordon, by the way
Great recipes! Love what you are doing Lori! Awesome website!
@DennyHagel Thank you Denny.
Lori, great article and health nut. I have Vitamix and it was a toss up between and Blend-Tec. I love Costco for organic greens and use a bag of heirloom lettuce up daily. Spinach lasts a little longer. Great tips and tricks you shared. For cleaning my Vitamix I use my sink spray. Works fast too with fresh water only.
@CarolRosenbergGiambri Thanks for sharing your cleaning tip Carol!
I used to drink nutrition shake breakfasts for years, but right now I am on a fresh fruit over hot oatmeal pattern as I love the warmth on the cool mornings. I always used our companies Vanilla shake, as like you say, you can get as creative as you want to with what you put into it.
@PatCruickshank Pat, the oatmeal sounds good but it’s hard to stuff a couple cups of greens in and have it taste good. Sometimes we all need a break for a while so it is good to have a variety of healthy, nutritious options.
Nice tips Lori!
@ajperisho Thanks AJ
I like these Lori…people really do underestimate the value of eating a good breakfast! I recently started using spinach and kale in my shake. Spinach is pretty good, kale…well that is a work in progress. But at least I know I am starting my day off on the right foot! Great stuff!
LOVE Shakeology. Greenberry is my favorite. It's nice to hear someone else likes it best, too.
Lori – this was great! I am a total green smoothie girl too – I have a smoothie with spinach, frozen pineapple, OJ and a JP+ Complete shake everyday. 2-3 handfuls of spinach is amazing once you get used to the color. Thanks for sharing!
