Low-carb Almond Butter Smoothie Bowl is a great way to start the day without a sugar rush, but with energy to make it through the morning.
This quick and easy recipe is part of the Atkins low-carb lifestyle – a long-term, healthy eating approach focused on high-fiber carbohydrates, optimal protein and healthy fats. The plan also aims to reduce levels of refined carbohydrates, added sugars and the “hidden sugar effect” – when carbohydrates convert to sugar when digested. You don’t see the sugar, but your body does.
