Healthy Breakfast Smoothies: Week 1

on

December across the globe is a month of feasts and festivities. In Hyderabad,the weather in December is pleasant and beautiful,which means the entire month is lined up with weddings,parties and events.

Hyderabadi weddings are a gastronomer’s delight.There is a huge spread of delicious hard to resist food.  Hyderabadi dum biryani, haleem , Marag, dum ka murgh, kababs and khubani ka meetha are some of the  famous delicacies of this royal city, without which, no feast big or small is complete.Having calorie heavy dinners automatically means waking up feeling guilty. I guess that is one reason why people resolve to set up healthy eating and weight loss goals around New Year.

If you can relate to the December ‘feasting nights and guilty mornings syndrome’ , you are at the right place. Read on…

Eating a light and healthy breakfast makes us feel much better and probably gear us up for the next feast 😉  I have lined up a few healthy breakfast smoothies which have been designed by a nutritional expert which according to her can help in staying fit during this festive season.

Strawberry Banana Oats and Chia seed is one delicious smoothie packed with nutrition and healthy calories to kick start your day.

Strawberries are a storehouse of anti-oxidants and help in promoting weight loss by stimulating metabolism and reducing appetite.

Bananas being a good source of dietary fiber and protein,help in digestion and inhibit the release of hunger hormone, thereby reducing the urge to over eat.

Chia seeds are considered  one of the healthiest foods on the planet. They are rich sources of antioxidants omega-3 fatty acids, and one of the best sources of fiber. Due to their rich fiber content,Chia seeds can absorb water and expand in the tummy giving a feeling of fullness and thereby curbing appetite.

Oats are full of good carbs that keep your body feeling energized and alert. They are a rich source of soluble and insoluble fibers which quell our hunger pangs, help in fighting belly fat and promote weight loss.

Whoa!I think there are enough reasons to  blend this delicious and healthy smoothie for breakfast.
