Here’s one the smoothie recipe that both my husband and I have every morning. We find that having a smoothie is the quickest way to get nutritious energising breakfast into our bodies. All the seeds and protein in this drink will last us until lunch time without snacks as long as we continue to drink water in between. See recipe below.
Most of the time, when we feel hungry during mid-morning, it could be due to several reasons
- Habitual – our body crave for foods that are high in sugar, salt or behavioural
- Dehydrated – just need to drink water and hunger will disappear
- Didn’t have enough quality breakfast
So, before reaching for a snack, try having a drink of water when you feel a little hungry, and you’ll be surprise that most often, the hunger goes away.
