Blueberry Chia Breakfast Smoothie

I love starting my day off with a smoothie.  They keep you full, they are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, they are energizing  and downright delicious.  Also, they are ready in minutes, making them the perfect breakfast-to-go.  Fruit smoothies alone are super healthy, but I like to add Vega One nutritional powder to mine to really get amazing health benefits out of them.  One scoop of Vega boasts 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals, 15 g protein, 6 g fibre, 1.5 g Omega-3, antioxidants, probiotics and greens.  I also love adding ground chia seeds to my smoothies since they are a complete protein loaded with fiber,  calcium, and b vitamins, which is a great way for vegetarians to ensure they are getting enough in their diet.  One tablespoon a day is the recommendation.
