Rainbow Breakfast Smoothie

Yay or Nay?
Rainbow of fruits and veggies

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You’ve also probably heard that breakfast should be consumed within an hour of waking. Why? Breakfast is just that: breaking the fast. After almost 12 hours of not eating, consuming a nutritious breakfast is the perfect way to reboot your metabolism for the day ahead.

I don’t know about other moms of 7 month olds but preparing a healthy breakfast and having the luxury of consuming it within 60 minutes of waking is next to impossible….
….unless I make a smoothie. Fast, delicious and portable – a smoothie is the perfect breakfast to eat with one hand. The best part? By the time 10am rolls around, I have already consumed an entire rainbow of produce. By eating a wide variety of colors, I know that my body (and my baby!) are receiving a full range of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants.

I’m sure he’ll thank me later.
Your straw is waiting.
