A new season ushers in a whole new slew of temptations, (we're looking at you, PSLs), especially once you pack your bikini away in favor of roomier knits and layers. The best way to stay on track? By starting off with a healthy, delicious breakfast that'll fill you up. We turned to Dr. Philip Goglia, best-selling author and co-founder of G-Plans, the first online nutrition platform based on a user's metabolic body type, who offered up a recipe that's bound to kickstart your day.
If Dr. Goglia's name sounds familiar, that's because he's worked with fit A-listers like Khloe Kardashian and Chris Pratt. His recipe of choice? An almond butter and jelly smoothie."Your breakfast meal should charge your metabolism – it should promote a metabolic light switch where you start processing your fats, proteins and carbohydrates, providing you with an energy source that kickstarts your day and keeps you moving ahead without that mid-morning sugar crash. Say goodbye to those donut cravings," Dr. Goglia says. Trying to stay on track? Start your morning with Dr. Goglia's recipe below.
