I have a hard time eating breakfast in the morning (as do about 50% of the clients I’ve presented to or counseled) because of lack of appetite and feeling rushed. But instead of going without eating, grabbing ‘just a banana’ or stopping at Starbucks, I make a green smoothie every morning and bring it with me. So far, they haven’t made a Distracted Driving law about shifting gears whilst holding a giant mug of green smoothie! This hearty beverage gets me through until lunch and meets half my veggie and fruit servings for the day plus almost half of my calcium needs.
