Morning Rituals

March 22, 2014 § Leave a comment

I am not, not have I ever been, a morning person. But there’s a comfort in establishing a ritual that helps to get you going. My precious morning ritual (ok, and sometimes still is on stressful days) was to down a huge coffee and grab a bagel or some other carb. While it did give me a burst of energy, it left me dragging after just an hour or two.

These days, thanks to the advice and guidance of my health guru, my mornings go something like this:

1. Drink large glass of water
2. Take “good belly” probiotic shot
3. Drink homemade maca milk (chocolate walnut milk with maca)
4. Drink large smoothie (mostly herbs and berries)
5. Eat breakfast (usually avocado toast or oatmeal)

When she went through this list with me I thought she was crazy – for one how was I going to fit all this in between nursing, getting the baby ready for school, and getting to work on time? But once I got the hang of it, it really wasn’t so bad.

I make the milk on Sunday nights so it’s in the fridge ready to go for the week. I do my best to prep my smoothie bags a few days in advance so I can just throw it all in and blend. All this does require a little more time in the morning but I notice such a difference when I start my day already full of vitamins and nutrients.

Cheers to starting the day off right!
