Blueberry Pineapple SmoothieJanuary 27, 2014
I'm not the friendliest person when I initially wake up but this sure does help.Ever since I was a child, I absolutely despise being disturbed during my slumber. Quite honestly, I just find it rude that you would wake anyone for reasons outside of death and/or disaster, but that's another topic for another day.
Since I know and accept that I am grumpy when I awake, I try to find different ways to help me deal with the rest of the world while I am in the process of waking up. One of my favorite solutions, Blueberry Pineapple Smoothies.
There's something amazing that happens to my brain when I take my first sip and I'm instantly able to tolerate mornings better. Blueberries help with belly fat, preserve vision, heart health, lowers blood sugar and it's considered a brain food- which is what I attribute to that amazing feeling my brain gets at first sip.
