Breakfast Criminals Founder Ksenia’s Morning Routine with Well+Good

How does the OG Breakfast Criminal start her day?

Ksenia Breakfast Criminals Morning Routine

I get that question a lot.

So I had Well+Good come over to my place to document a few elements of my morning routine. It includes oil pulling, saging, meditating (with Headspace or Insight apps), and making a protein-packed açaì bowl with Tambor Acai!

And no, I don’t actually use sage instead of deodorant. Morning routines don’t have to be that serious!

Here’s what Well+Good writes:

“If you’re one of those people who pops out of bed perfectly energized, we applaud you. For the rest of us, blaring iPhone alarms are still a daily (vibes-crushing) reality.

Consider our latest My Morning Routine video your a.m. intervention. From high-vibe rituals to the perfect protein-packed breakfast, Breakfast Criminals’ Ksenia Avdulova is showing us how it’s done.

The buzzy breakfast guru (known for her heart-shaped smoothie bowls) has traveled the world in search of the most powerful way to start the day, so you can trust she’s come up with some pretty legit stuff (sage and oil pulling included).” 

Watch the video here and get the recipe for my protein-packed acai bowl below!
