We all know the saying "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." And well, deep down we know it's true, but we still neglect breakfast. Many of us find ourselves running out the door in the morning with no time to sit down and eat a filling breakfast. The least we might do is grab a coffee at the corner coffeeshop. But if you're looking to change up your morning routine and make it just a bit more healthy, smoothies give you the boost you're looking for.
You can pack a whole lot of vitamins and nutrients into a breakfast smoothie. Use a base of milk, soy milk, silken tofu, yogurt or kefir to ensure a good serving of protein. Then vary the ingredients to create your favorite flavor. Try banana, pineapple, berries or even vegetables. These recipes give you great ideas for making smoothies at home (there's no need to pay top dollar for a smoothie at the juicebar). You'll see that whizzing together a smoothie in the morning is not difficult at all. It's quick and easy, perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle.
