Everyone knows that it can be difficult to eat a healthy and delicious breakfast everyday of the week. We feel rushed and choices that are filling, healthy and nutritious seem limited. In addition, coffee shops are loaded with unhealthy goodies and work cafeterias tend to only offer traditional breakfast items that are never exactly the best choice for our health.
One of the best ways to avoid giving into temptation and eating unhealthy is to make your own smoothies at home. Smoothies are versatile, delicious, nutritious and give you the energy that you need to wake up and face the day with sustainable energy.
Here are five convincing reasons to drink smoothies for breakfast.
- Start off your day the right way
How you begin your day really sets the pace for what is to come. By feeding your body a healthy and nutritious meal, you are setting yourself up for success. Smoothies will give you energy, clarity and fill you up with all the right stuff instead of the usual unhealthy breakfast foods that can cause a quick crash.

Smoothies are extremely convenient to make! They take at most, five minutes total and you can make them the morning of or the night before.

Smoothies are a smart and easy way to get the amount of green servings you need to thrive. It can be tough to eat as many greens as you desire but when it comes to a smoothie, you can use spinach, kale, romaine and any green that suits you.
