I can’t go without my morning coffee and the people in my life can’t go without me having my morning coffee. If you follow me here you know I have confessed that I am not in any way shape or form a morning person. However, I wake up with two things on my mind, getting my coffee and filling my belly.
One of the best ways to jump-start your metabolism is by consuming protein soon after waking up. Sometimes it is hard for me to get moving until I have had my coffee and then I may not have the time to whip up a protein-packed breakfast before I have to run out the door. A great alternative is a smoothie, it is quick, healthy and can be taken on the run. This smoothie offers protein, omega 3’s, potassium and of course caffeine, so now I can have my protein shake, my shot of morning joe and potassium for my muscles and omega 3’s for my heart and brain all in one cup.
I was lucky to sample some Gourmesso Coffee and wanted to share with you how easy, quick and delicious these pods were to use in my Nespresso machine.
Gourmesso coffee is a New York City-based coffee company making coffee capsules that are compatible with Nespresso machines. They sell their capsules exclusively on our website, and ship to all 50 states at a price that is 30 percent less than the original Nespresso capsules.
Currently, Gourmesso offers 20 different espresso varieties made with coffee beans from around the world, from South and Central America to Africa, India, and Asia.
I was really impressed that they also offer the only certified Fairtrade coffee capsules available. Which mean empowering farmers and farm workers with financial incentives and resources for organic conversion. That is a good thing for everyone!
I hope you give this smoothie a try tomorrow morning, you won’t be disappointed yummy! It will be gone before you know it!
