Enzyme rich smoothies are another wonderful way to kick-start your day. They are the ultimate fast-food as they can be whipped up in seconds. You simply throw all your favourite ingredients into a blender and whiz them up. What could be more convenient and easy?
I should point out that juices and smoothies are completely different drinksalthough both are beneficial. Smoothies, which include some fibre, have a prolonged digestion process. Digesting foods is one of the hardest jobs your body has to undertake, but in these liquid drinks we can digest and assimilate their precious nutrients much more readily.
Smoothies take less time to prepare than the average breakfast of cereal, toast and coffee. Children are especially attracted to their yummy creamy textures and colours that look quite similar to ice cream. Nourishing ingredients such as soaked fruits, seeds and nuts can be used as thickeners where you feel this is necessary and in this way nourishing essential fats can easily be blended into smoothies without the children even noticing.. For sustained energy levels throughout the day these drinks offer good nourishment for breakfast.
