Alba’s busy lifestyle caused her to get in the habit of skipping breakfast, which was throwing her blood sugar off. She was craving more carbs throughout the day, which made her feel tired. Nutritionist Kelly LeVeque recommended that she start the day off with a green smoothie that includes a mix of greens, 1/3 of banana, chia seeds, almond milk, and almond butter. “The idea was to balance her blood sugar from the get-go with something that was a great source of fiber,” she says to Well + Good.
