We have all heard the old cliché, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” And you probably know the importance of a healthy breakfast for jump-starting your metabolism and preparing you for the day ahead. But did you know that most of us wake up each morning dehydrated and slightly acidic?
With this in mind, it is best to start your morning by drinking several glasses of water with a pinch of Celtic Sea Salt® Makai Deep Sea Salt™. With a pH of 10, Makai Deep Sea Salt™ is an excellent way to begin alkalizing your body. And, the electrolytes in the salt-water mixture will help your body rehydrate more completely.
Once you’re rehydrated, it’s time to nourish your body. One of the most nutritious ways to begin your day is with a green smoothie. When most people think about smoothies, they picture a thick, frosty, sugary fruit drink. And while this type of smoothie makes for a delicious dessert, it is not a healthy way to begin your day.
A morning smoothie should contain very little sugar, and should be full of remineralizing ingredients such as unrefined sea salt, sea vegetables, and lots and lots of green vegetables. We love the following recipe from our friends at Selina Naturally®, and we’re sure you will, too!
