Summary

This quick-and-easy breakfast has everything you need to wake up and keep going all morning long. Blueberries provide an almost unmatched amount of antioxidants—especially wild blueberries; freshly squeezed lime juice helps detoxify the body and brighten the flavors; mint promotes digestion and stimulates the senses; and flax meal and almond flour offer a double dose of fiber. If you don’t have blueberries on hand, feel free to swap in the same amount of strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries instead.
