I’ll freely admit that when left with unhealthy food choices, I gobble them up. Waffles? Check! Not-so-healthy cereal? Why not!?
So, knowing that my morning will power can be non-existent (especially on days when I don’t get an early AM workout in), I try to surround myself with options that are not only healthier, but that also taste great.
If I’m out of Shakeology (gasp!!) or my breakfast yogurt, I whip up some of these delicious smoothies and grab a slice of toast.
They’re also perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up…or for sneaking fruit into the kids’ diets.
Whatever works, right? Enjoy!
