We have all heard the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. This is as true as saying Justin Timberlake is the most beautiful man on earth (except my husband). Breakfast kick starts our metabolism and gives us the brain fuel we need to take on the day. Although I know this to be true, the simple task of making time to sit down for breakfast seems close to impossible. It is a scramble to get out of bed, showered, dressed and out the door on time. Which is why smoothies are my saving grace. They are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. Quick, nutritious and delicious. To cut down on prep time in the morning, chop all ingredients the night before and put them in a mason jar. Come morning all you have to do is toss the mason jar contents into your blender, blend and go!
