A berry smoothie has to be the fastest and easiest breakfast, great for people who are on the go. I love the blueberries, and frozen ones are just as good for you. Loaded with anti-oxidants and low in sugar, a great anti-inflammatory, helping with cell repair. The yogurt has probiotics and a good source of protein. Kefir can be used in the place of yogurt to increase the probiotic power. The gelatin is a fantastic source of the amino acids that are all about repairing connective tissue, proline, glycine and glutamine, especially good for healing digestion. Also, pea protein powder can be added to increase the protein even more.
