Here is a great shake you can make in the morning that will get you started on the right foot. It will power your body with nutrients for the day, and keep you going without making you feel heavy. It will get your metabolism going so you burn fat from the beginning. It’s also full of antioxidants and anti-inflamatories that help repair and protect your body tissues. A shake like this every morning for breakfast can really help you lose fat and gain muscle.

Maybe the best part is that it is really filling so that you feel full, but there are not that many calories  when you consider you are getting a full, nutritious breakfast.

Why do these ingredients make the perfect breakfast shake?

Apples have been proven to help get you going in the morning, in addition to providing you with healthy nutrition and fiber. The protein and green tea kick start your metabolism and help you begin burning fat straight away. Yogurt gives you the dairy sourced calcium that has been shown in numerous studies to help build muscle and burn fat. The ice helps hydrate you,  increases your metabolism, and makes you feel full. Blueberries and green tea are both loaded with powerful antioxidants to help fight off tissue damage. The flax seed meal is a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber, and salmon would taste like crap in a breakfast shake.
