If you’re like most people, you probably think you could lose a few pounds. However, going on a strict diet and exercise plan might not be appealing—perhaps you don’t have the time, energy, or resources. It’s one reason people switch to a plant-based lifestyle—consuming primarily vegetables, grains, nuts, and other plants lets you lose weight naturally.
One go-to for people on a plant-based diet is dried sea moss. Dubbed the “superfood of the sea,” algae is full of nutritional benefits. This flavorless plant has immune-boosting minerals like iron, zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus, acts as a soluble fiber, and supports your gut health.
Sea Moss Smoothies: Breakfast on the Go
Those who want a little more zest to their daily dose of sea moss can whip up sea moss-based smoothies and drinks. Sea moss smoothies are the best way to start your morning—they take two minutes to prepare, but they provide you with energy and nutrients that last the entire day. Forget about coffee or tea in the morning—a sea moss smoothie will perk you up and boost your mood minus the caffeine.
The best part? There are dozens of ways to make this drink. We even wrote a book about sea moss smoothies! If you’re only starting with your plant-based diet, below is a quick and easy recipe you can try.
