Are You Up For The Deskfest Breakfast Challenge?

We all know that breakfast is the most important part of the day yet most of us skip it.
We tell ourselves that we ‘don’t have the time’ or ‘I can’t face food in the morning’.
But if we are to be healthy, then we mustn’t neglect it because not only will you be able to function better but it can also help you lose weight in the long run
You see, when we wake up, our body has been in starvation mode and it needs refuelling to help us function throughout the day.
In effect we are ‘breaking the fast’.
And with the growing trend of people eating breakfast ‘on the go’ or at their desks at work, it makes sense to make this very important meal as healthy and creative as possible with minimal effort.
So this week I have decided to take the Alpro deskfest challenge to create five healthy inspirational breakfasts that can be enjoyed at your desk or on the go to show you just how easy it is to kick start your day with a great meal to see you throughout the day.
Today I made a Kiwi and Spinach Rich Chocolate Almond Smoothie.

I used 300ml Alpro Almond Milk
1 kiwi
Handful of spinach
1 tablespoon of dark chocolate powder

I just threw everything into the blender with a couple of ice cubes .
Honestly, try it. You won’t even notice the spinach, yet you’ll get all the goodness from it. Watch out Popeye! Enjoy!
