A Healthy Start to Your Day

One of the best ways to start the day is a healthy breakfast.  Mornings are really busy trying to get the kids to school and the husband off to work.  Once everyone is off, it is time to exercise…of course,  I am usually running late at this point.  The easiest way to get in a healthy and delicious breakfast is a smoothie.  I buy fresh spinach and kale in bulk and freeze it for a colder smoothie.

Smoothies are a great way to nourish your body with vitamins and minerals your body needs to fuel itself.  They have the added  benefit of giving your digestive system a rest while still obtaining plenty of dietary fiber.

Making it yourself, ensures that you know exactly what you are eating.  This is one of my favorites…
