Mornings are always so rushed, but eating a healthy filling breakfast is so important and will start your day off right. A green smoothie is a fantastic option for those mornings where you only have 5 minutes before you're dashing out the door. Personally, I am a huge fan of green smoothies because they are super easy to throw together, very filling (they're full of protein and fiber) and absolutely yummy!
Here are few great tasting and filling recipes:
1. Green Monster Smoothie: Don't let the name make you nervous, this monster is made of vitamins and nutrients that will help with digestion and scare off all those nasty toxins your body is carrying around!
