For us, a smoothie for breakfast works. Green or berry is good for a regular day, chocolate – for a relaxing weekend). Somedays I can get creative and make a colorful smoothie bowl. Check out our pics on instagram.
If smoothie option doesn’t sound good enough for breakfast, just know that it works as a perfect energy boosting snack as well. Add a spoon of nut butter or a few spoons of oats to make it more fulfilling. Try, experiment and let me know what you think ;).
