I try and start my mornings off with at least 2-3 servings of fruits and veggies. Usually the easiest way to do this is to throw together a big green smoothie- and recently I have been stuck on this one! It has a orang-y tropical feel packed with 2 servings of leafy greens + bonus omega-3s! Just a smoothie tip: I keep all my smoothie ingredients but citrus frozen so that I don't have to use ice- which I feel waters it down a bit.
If you're trying to change one thing about your day, consider subbing in this smoothie with a side of whole-grain oatmeal or cereal in the morning to start your day off healthy and refreshed!
