If you are like most people, what you eat for breakfast is practically an afterthought, but what you eat for breakfast affects both your health, and how you feel and perform all day.
In the morning, your stomach is empty and needs good, basic nutrition! Most breakfast options are full of carbohydrates and sugar, not much protein, and certainly not many good sources of fat or fiber. Not only is this poor nutritionally, but too many simple carbs and on an empty stomach can spike blood sugars, stresses your insides and can even weaken your immune system. Keeping your immune system humming is as important right now as ever. Further, blood sugar crashes make people tired, hungry, susceptible to poor food choices and feeling completely out of balance. Is that the best way to start your day? We don't think so.
We propose something different. Zen pouches are a unique mix of raw seeds, and nut, mixed with protein powder, cacao and a superstar line-up of premium health food ingredients - all in one. Zen plus milk in your blender is all it takes, though we recommend a milk that doesn't moo.
A Zen smoothie is all plant proteins, packed with unprocessed fats from seeds and nut, and fiber. Each serving has as little as 6 grams of net carbs per serving, depending on what kind of milk you use. If you or someone in your family likes life a bit sweeter, our chocolate taste is quite decadent. Either way it's a quick and easy breakfast smoothie to add to your breakfast routine.
Our secret sauce includes a heaping of flaxseed. It's our #1 ingredient and an amazing seed known for it's amazing health benefits by WebMD and many others. But that's just a part of what's inside each of our smoothie mixes. We're here to spread seed & nut protein smoothies to the masses.
All Zen products are naturally gluten-free, vegan and non-gmo. We also include a probiotic that supports immune health, digestive health, and protein utilization. And it's ready in less time than it takes to brew a cup of coffee! Just add milk and blend.
There's no wrong way to have your Zen breakfast smoothie. Non-dairy milks work best, like almond and coconut, but you can use regular cow's milk too*. There's no need to add anything but milk, but Zen fans do get creative in all sorts of ways, so if you want to add a banana or other healthy stuff, don't be shy. You can add all sorts of fun ingredients and find your ideal Zen.
Feeling full? Extra Zen stores well in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 days. It also doesn't separate like powdered drinks, so snacking on Zen in your refrigerator is easy and fun.
Eating a better breakfast leads to a better day, and we know that once you've tried Zen Breakfast Blend, you won't want to go back to breakfast as usual.
* If you use milk from an animal to make Zen, it's no longer vegan :-)
