There are so many things I need to be doing to meet the healthy goals I have set for myself. I get easily get overwhelmed if I try to tackle them all at once, so I work on baby steps. I’ve never been one to eat breakfast on a daily basis, yet I know how important breakfast is, to get the metabolism going for the day. This is one change I have been working on, with the help of delicious recipes such as my Mango Tango Smoothie.
Going from no breakfast to a huge breakfast with eggs, pancakes, bacon and a glass of juice, just isn’t going to work for me. It’s just too much. My easy fix is to whip up a smoothie, or protein drink, to get my day started. Keith has been working on this with me, as sometimes his breakfasts are a bit too much. A morning smoothie is light enough to not weigh me down, but enough to get my metabolism and my energy going.
One of my go-to smoothie aids are the Odwalla Smoothies. These are delicious on their own, and great for a grab-n-go type of breakfast or snack, but they also make for great homemade smoothies.
Coca-Cola is making it easier to incorporate healthy choices with Simply Orange Juice (hubby’s favorite OJ), and Fairlife Milk. Fairlife Milk boasts 50% more protein and 30% more calcium than ordinary milk. We love the Fairlife Chocolate milk too. Just beware of the additional sugar.
