They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and… they are right. But getting up and stuffing yourself with a plate of eggs and bacon will just weigh you down and make you feel lazy all day. Also, bacon, one of America’s favorite breakfast delicacies, is high in saturated fats and cholesterol, which can lead to an increased risk in heart disease and stroke. Fruit, on the other hand, contains good amounts of vitamin C, potassium and folate. Vitamin C helps your immune system and the added antioxidants in fruit help fight diseases. So you can either have a quick, easy, healthy and most of all delicious breakfast on the go or you can spend the time slaving over a hot griddle only to make something that will weigh you down. I think the choice is obvious.
While many Americans may want to switch over to the smoothie revolution, some don’t know how. Well, it’s as simple as getting a blender and throwing some fruit in it. So now that you know the benefits of smoothies, and the ease of making them, just follow this recipe or create your own to start your days off right.
