Curves Shakes are the Perfect Summer Breakfast

In the hustle and bustle of the a.m., a healthy breakfast can seem like a fantasy at best. But with a few simple, nutritious ingredients, the perfect morning meal is only a blender whir away with delicious Curves Shakes!

Curves Shakes provide a balanced macronutrient approach that includes protein, carbohydrate and fat for a satisfying snack or meal,” says Darcie Anderson, Nutritionist at Curves and Jenny Craig. 

Curves Shakes Serve up the Following

Protein: The Curves Shake smoothie recipes below include a scoop of either chocolate or vanilla Curves protein powder. “Protein is your source of amino acids—the building blocks for cell regeneration and growth,” Anderson says. “Protein after a workout is a plus for muscle recovery,” she says. When served at breakfast, it helps keep you satisfied throughout the morning. In addition, a protein-rich breakfast evens the release of glucose into your bloodstream, helping to avoid a sugar high and crash.

H20: Staying hydrated during the hot sweat-inducing days of summer is essential, especially when you are active. A Curves smoothie is refreshing and chock-full of ice and refreshing fruit; it’s an ideal way to get plenty of fluids and cool down on a hot summer day.

Fiber: These Curves Shakes smoothie recipes are high in fiber to help with satiety and long-term digestive health.

Convenience: In the midst of life’s busyness, breakfast can take a back seat. “Our shakes and smoothies offer a balanced choice for breakfast for those hectic on-the-go mornings, providing a boost of both nutrition and energy to start your day,” Anderson says.
