This delicious breakfast smoothie (full of vegetables and healthy fats) might be your perfect compromise if you don't have time for a sit down meal but want to stop skipping breakfast in the mornings.
Breakfast is an important meal but it can be difficult to find the time to sit down and eat a proper breakfast each morning.
Unlike some smoothies, which are full of sugar and might contribute to a blood sugar rollercoaster, this smoothie is rich in protein and helpful fats. It also ticks off the colours white, red/purple and green on the rainbow food check list (which means it is rich in lots of diverse nutrients). You can prepare it the night before and sip on it slowly on the go (making sure you do a little bit of chewing to get those digestive juices flowing) or serve it in a bowl topped with extra goodness.
