Pitaya Smoothie Bowl with Grapefruit Essential Oil


All of our lives we have heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. But, even more important than making sure that you are having breakfast regularly, is making sure that your breakfast is nutritious and balanced.

When you eat breakfast, you are breaking a fast and jump-starting your metabolism; you are telling your body and brain to burn off the incoming calories. So, you should start the day by giving your body the key nutrients it needs to keep you full, satisfied and focused on the tasks that lay ahead. 
 
Incorporating fibre, vitamins, antioxidants and protein into your breakfast is easier than you might think. Fruit, oats, seeds, yoghurt, eggs and nut butters are all healthy choices, and the best part is that you can combine most of these ingredients into one mouth-watering recipe.
 
A great solution to a healthy and delicious breakfast is a smoothie bowl, and this tasty recipe doesn’t just add a bright and funky colour to your breakfast. You'll benefit from; the amazing antioxidants and fibre content of Pitaya (dragon fruit) and raspberries; the potassium and magnesium content found in bananas; protein from the Greek yoghurt and the omega-3 of chia seeds. And you'll enjoy the invigorating properties of Grapefruit essential oil too! It's the perfect breakfast for the whole family!
