Having a nourishing and balanced breakfast ensures that you’re energised, your blood sugars are stable (reducing the chances of getting that mid-morning energy slump), and it gives your mind and body the nutrients it needs to get up and going in the morning. Smoothies are a great option for those who are time poor or who simply don’t want to spend more than 10mins making breakfast. It’s also gentle on the digestive system first thing in the morning, and can be easily poured into a jar/bottle and taken away to work/uni if you need to dash out the door.
