This Mediterranean Diet Breakfast Smoothie is the perfect on-the-go nutrient packed breakfast option. The Mediterranean Diet is well established to be one of the healthiest dietary patterns in the world for longevity, heart health, reducing inflammation and hormonal health. That’s because this dietary pattern is so rich in antioxidants from the high vegetable, herb and olive oil use. It is also much higher in fiber and lower in inflammatory ingredients than many other dietary patterns.
Our philosophy at Functional Fueling is rooted in the Mediterranean diet ingredients and living principles but includes a metabolic spin to best support metabolism and hormones. This recipe is one of my personal breakfast favorites. It’s nutrient dense, quick and filling!
Consuming a breakfast rich in both high fiber and high protein content offers a range of research-backed benefits that contribute to overall health and well-being. The combination of high fiber and protein in the morning can promote sustained energy levels throughout the day by stabilizing blood sugar levels and preventing rapid spikes and crashes. This dynamic duo also supports weight management efforts, as the fiber enhances feelings of fullness and reduces subsequent calorie intake, while the protein preserves lean muscle mass and boosts metabolism. Moreover, a high fiber and high protein breakfast has been associated with improved digestive health, promoting regular bowel movements and fostering a healthy gut microbiome. Research suggests that this breakfast combination can enhance cognitive function, memory, and concentration, contributing to increased productivity and mental clarity. By providing essential nutrients and promoting satiety, a breakfast abundant in both fiber and protein lays a solid foundation for making healthier food choices throughout the day.
