“One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast” – Robert A. Heinlein
Breakfast is undoubtedly the most important meal of the day, but unfortunately too many of us are really bad at it. We either don’t have the time, we would rather sleep a little longer, or we’re simply not that hungry. It is, however, breakfast that kick starts your metabolism and it will also keep you fuller throughout the day.
So what do you do when you are a non-breakfast eater with little time? You make smoothies. The right breakfast smoothies are chock-full of fruits and veggies that are good for your body. All you need to do is blend them and take the smoothie out the front door. Easy, right?
