My morning routine

When you first wake up your body has been starved of food for a certain amount of time (depending on how long you have slept for), it is therefore important to get nutrients into the body quickly to help feed it for the day ahead.

The first thing I do is drink around two cups of water. Water is one of the most important nutrients to put into our body, dehydration can have drastic affects on our health. Your body depends on water for every chemical reaction that takes place within the body. Most people are recommended to drink 8-12 glasses of water per day, and so i like to try and get two glasses in straight away. I add Aloe vera juice to this (which you can find at any Holland and Barrett) as it is known to aid digestion and improve immune function.

After my water i will make a protein shake to get some protein into my muscles that have been starved whilst i slept. My morning routine

Along with my protein i add Chlorella powder – a green algae that contains many vitamins and antioxidants

i also add Spirulina powder- another green powder that boosts many health benefits, including improving digestion, controls appetite, detoxifies the body and supports the liver and kidneys

Finally i add Chia seeds (white) – they contain omega 3 fatty acids, dietary fibre, calcium, manganese, phosphorous and it also contains trytophan, an amino acid that helps control appetite (so is great for those looking to diet down)

I also add a source of simple carbohydrates in the form of either a banana or blueberries.

This is just my morning routine to give you ideas to help fuel the day ahead. If your looking to add extra calories, try adding peanut butter (get the organic no added sugar kind) or some oats.

Good Luck
