Breakfast on the Run – Smoothies Can Start Your Morning Off Right

If your house is like mine, it’s a bit hectic in the morning. Working moms may be more concerned with getting breakfast into their kids than they are getting something nutritious for themselves.

You may know that breakfast literally means “break the quick”. After a night’s sleep (or quick) our bodies need to be fueled to face the busy day. Eating or drinking something nutritious is vital, but it doesn’t have to be a full meal. If you have time for a bowl of high fiber cereal with sliced fruit and low stout milk, fantastic, but if not, you do want to at least drink something nutritious.

Whether you work from home or work out of the home, these quick breakfast drinks can get you out the door on time, or into your home office chair with an alert brain. Get the blender out onto the counter and instead of pouring coffee into your travel mug, try one of these yummy recipes:

smooth and frothy. Pour into glasses and serve.
