While we’ve all heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” that doesn’t always work out. When you have an 8 AM class, sleep might win out over eating before class. Smoothies can be a great way to get energizing nutrients on the go.
Smoothie ingredients can be pre-cut and combined the night before, and quickly blended in the morning. If you know you’ll be having a crazy week, you can even freeze smoothies for the whole week on Sunday.
