Serves 2 (serving size: 1 1/4 cups smoothie, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, and about 2/3 cup berries)
Start your day with a rich, creamy smoothie bowl full of anti-inflammatory foods. Aside from easing inflammation, this breakfast offers you the heart-healthy benefits of avocados’ unsaturated fats, plus more than half your daily fiber in one serving—enough to help keep you full until lunchtime. Keep the berries frozen (both the ones blended into the smoothie and the ones on top of the bowl) for great texture.
