Breakfast affects how you feel and perform all day. When morning calls, your stomach is empty and 8 to 12 hours have passed since your last meal. It’s time for good nutrition and to break your fast. Most of us fill up on a breakfast full of too many carbohydrates and sugar, and not enough protein, good sources of fat and fiber. Not only is this poor nutritionally, but too many simple carbs and sugar on an empty stomach spikes blood sugars and stresses your pancreas, causing most people to come crashing down hours later, tired, hungry, and feeling out of balance.
Experts also say that eating a big, healthy 400+ calorie breakfast in the morning is key to losing weight or maintaining proper weight and that we should consume more nuts and seeds in our diet. A 400+ calorie breakfast that isn't full of sugars and empty carbs is difficult to find, so we made one, packed full of good stuff.
Each Zen Breakfast Blend™ is a mix of plant-based proteins, fresh nut and seeds, dried fruit, and a probiotic mixed with natural organic cacao and other premium ingredients. With plenty of protein, unprocessed fats and more fiber than most people get all day, you'll avoid the problems caused by a high sugar and high carb breakfast, and have the nutrition and natural energy you need to take on a busy day. Ready in a minute. 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 use whatever milk works best for you*. There's no need to add anything but milk. But if you want to get creative, go for it! You can add all sorts of other fresh ingredients to make your ideal Zen. Extra Zen stores well in the refrigerator. And if you want a warm Zen, it only takes 30 seconds in a microwave.
Eating a better breakfast leads to a better day, and we're confident that once you've tried Zen Breakfast Blend, you won't want to go back.
* Reminder that if you use milk from a cow, it's no longer vegan :-)
