This smoothie is a great example of a balanced breakfast or even a lunch. The protein, fiber and fat content will help balance leptin and insulin levels so you should feel satisfied for up to 4-5 hours. The smoothie will also provide vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, healthy fats and essential amino acids. Use organic when possible.
