Protein for Breakfast - Vegan Style!

Protein for breakfast can be tricky as a vegan - no eggs (to state the obvious)! Everyone wants to start their day in a fabulous healthy way- I mean if you wake up and fill your body with tons of sugar or fat or chemicals, well then you might as well just go right back to bed! Your body is going to be tired and sluggish trying to digest it all day anyways. Most mornings I like to have a deliciously healthy Picky Diet green smoothie - but sometimes I'm looking for a little more, especially when I've done a sweet sweaty workout. So here is what I go for…
2 pieces of Ezekiel sprouted grain bread toasted (organic and amazing!)
2 tablespoons of almond butter (my fav is Barney's Crunchy)
A handful of blueberries
Spread the almond butter on the toast and enjoy with a little side of blueberries. Add a nice warm cup of organic green tea and you are giving your body everything it needs for a healthy day…
14 grams of Protein - giving you the energy you need for a productive morning
6 grams of Fibre - keeps you full and your insides happy and moving!
Tons of antioxidants in the b-berries and the green tea keeping you healthy and 25% of vitamin E in the almond butter keeping your skin smooth and glowing!
380 calories!
