FRUIT

Adding fruit to your morning not only adds critical vitamins and minerals your body needs, but it also helps add dietary fiber which will help you feel fuller for longer. This is a great choice for those trying to lose weight!

SMOOTHIE

A smoothie is a fantastic way to start each day. The color of your smoothie is more important than you might think. What is the best color for this breakfast drink? Green! Why green? Because you want a vegetable-based smoothie. When choosing a fruit-based smoothie, you are often creating a smoothie with high sugar content and a breakfast high in calories. Vegetable smoothies offer health benefits like increased energy, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
