A breakfast smoothie Bowl is a great way to start the day

I spend the last days of summer experimenting on the perfect breakfast smoothie bowl with fruits that that would have soon disappeared, and today I will share with you one of these discoveries.

Most of the ingredients are normally available throughout the year. The only ingredient that might be difficult to find (if like me you are not living in a huge city) is Maca (powder), the turnip-like super-food.

Today we inaugurate the “Super ingredient » section, were we will share with you our recipes using unusual yet very healthy and energy boosting ingredients. With the cold days coming ahead, we all tend to have a loss of motivation, and sun deprivation limits our vitamin absorption. That were some super foods can be a big help!

For those not familiar, Maca is a tuber that grows in the mountainous regions of Peru (and other parts of the Andes). It is used as an energy booster and is one of those super trendy superfood powders for breakfast. This powder has a caramel-malt taste that not everyone appreciates. If like me you end up liking it, pay attention not to consume lots of it or it will steal your sleep!

So take your fruits and vegetables basket and pick out bananas, kiwis and spinach for a super-energizing breakfast smoothie bowl!

Ingredients (for 1 – 2 persons) :

· 1 Kiwi
· 1 Banana
· 2 Handfuls of spinach
· 70g  Bilberry (frozen or not)
· 1 Tsp Maca
· 1 Tbsp Unsweetened peanut butter
· 240 ml Almond milk (or any other non-dairy milk)
· 2-3 Handfuls of granola (homemade granola recipe below)

. Topping options : buckwheat, bee pollen, nuts…

Blend together kiwi, banana, spinach, bilberry, maca, peanut butter and almond milk.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
