The ground flaxseeds boost the fiber factor and the black tea gives a subtle kick, says Christine Avaniti, R.D., author of Skinny Chicks Eat Real Food. “Tea contains an amino acid called L-theanine, which heightens alpha brain wave activity. This allows you to become alert yet calm simultaneously.”

  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
  • 1 cup black tea, iced
  • 2 tablespoons egg white protein powder (one to try: Jay Robb’s)
