Good morning!


What’s for breakfast?


Because of their ease and high nutrition content, smoothies are my go-to breakfast about 4 times a week.


What you put in your smoothie can make or break your day (and your loved one’s day) in terms of your ability to think clearly, have energy, and feel full for hours after you consume it.


They also provide an excellent opportunity to use food as your medicine and fulfill an abundance of vitamin and mineral requirements for your body and mind.
