Breakfast is THE most important meal of the day. We all know this, so why do we choose to gulp down a latte and grab a muffin as we rush to work? This not setting you up for a good day – rather a mid-morning low. Even if sleep wins the battle for time in the morning, if you whip up one of these smoothies, you can tick all the ‘good start to the day’ boxes. Protein, Tick. Antioxidants, Tick. Fibre, Tick. Good plant fats, Tick. Yumminess, Tick, Tick, Tick. And if you make up a batch, it’s good for a couple of breakies. Another big tick!
