Me a traveling girl, nah! Okay, I know, I know, I am definitely a traveling girl. With life on the go, getting creative with a healthy breakfast can be tricky for some people. Especially with being in a car heading from place to place, it is important to find food that will not leave a mess in your car, or on yourself.
When I was going through my Nutritional Science degree, eating healthy was number one to me. I would pack a healthy smoothie for my breakfast each day. It packed well in my backpack, and was perfect when sitting and listening to a lecture. Now years later, I continue to find creative ways to keep my car, not my backpack full of happy healthy breakfast treats.
Today I am excited to share about Yakult. They sent me both the regular and light drink to try for a 10 day trial. I can honestly report I am a fan, and would love to continue including it in my daily routine. It is a fun little bottle, perfect to travel with, and delicious to drink each day.
What makes this drink so special is the probiotic. We have heard about probiotics with “live and active” cultures, and we are familiar with lactobacillus or acidophilus in different yogurts. The difference is, those are probiotic cultures, but do not include a strain. What makes Yakult unique is the probiotic Lactobacillus Casei also includes a strain, Shirota. After 75 years of research, it has been found that Lactobacillus Casei Shirota does in fact reach your digestive tract alive. This in turn will balance your digestive system, and help you maintain overall health.
It is so important to enjoy breakfast each day to kick start your metabolism after letting it rest for six to eight hours. To get creative, you could add a bottle or two into a smoothie. Just add Yakult, your favorite fruit, maybe some cinnamon, put it in a travel mug, and head out to start your day! However, I looked forward to enjoying this little bottle all on its own. Here is a fun fact that was shared by Yakult, 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive system. This fact really shares how Yakult will truly balance your digestive system with beneficial bacteria, improve regularity, and support overall health.
