Lately, I have felt like I need a more effective strategy to get in my recommended daily allowance of fruit and veg. I decided that a fruit smoothie for breakfast and a big salad for lunch would be a step in the right direction.
It's been two weeks now and I must say, there is a difference in my energy level and general mood. So bonus!
Maybe drinking brightly colored smoothies out of awesome acrylic tumblers from Target helps!
Recipe for kick ass, feel full longer, SUPER DUPER Smoothie::

Trader Joe's Frozen Fruit:: 3/4c Very Cherry Berry Mix – 1/4c of Mango Chunks (or 1c of frozen fruit of your choice) TJ's has some good combos.
