We all know what happens in the summertime. Temperatures rise, the humidity makes you feel like you are walking around in a sauna and the last thing you want to do is eat a bowl of warm cereal or have a plate of eggs. Who wants to even turn on the stove? But this lack of interest in breakfast isn't necessarily good for your weight loss goals over the summer. You need to eat food in order to get your metabolism working at its best and keep your body humming like the finely tuned machine it is. If you don't fuel your body properly, there is no way you can stay on track with your fitness goals either. So, Prevention
has come to your aide with these superfood packed, easy, quick no cook breakfast recipes:

3 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
2 Tbsp chopped pistachios
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
blueberries, blackberries, and banana in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, adding enough almond milk to form a thick, smoothie-like consistency. Transfer mixture to a bowl.
the berry mixture with the pistachios, hemp seeds, and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
