Smoothie Ideas – A quick boost of optimal nutrition

Smoothies can be a great way to get great nutrients in something that’s quick and easy to take on-the-go. I love throwing together a bunch of healthy ingredients and seeing how it turns out. Smoothies are great for an afternoon pick me up (much better than that sugar-filled snack, coffee or soda many people reach for). It will give you a boost without the dreaded crash. I created a “menu” of items that are good to throw together when creating a smoothie. Simply pick one item from each category, blend together, and voila! You have a healthy option you can take with you anywhere! Happy Blending!
