Lately, people have been asking me what I eat for breakfast. Those who decide to try my morning ritual are excited by how good they feel with this way of “breaking the fast” of the previous night. So, I figured it was time to share it in more detail, especially now that green smoothies and green drinks have rightfully gained popularity.
One noteworthy mention is that my morning smoothies are continually evolving. My husband and daughter make them for me each morning (lucky Mama!) and I’m always changing it up, which is why the photo doesn’t show everything in my list of ingredients. So, here’s what my all-organic, high-octane morning smoothie is (currently) made of:
