If you need a quick way to get all your fruit and vegetables in one serving, look no further than a smoothie.
Smoothies are jam-packed with vitamins and nutrients, making them an ideal snack for those who can’t wrap their heads around eating a big salad everyday. In addition to fresh produce, there are seemingly endless add-in options at smoothie bars, so you can fill your blend to the brim with all the wheatgrass, protein, or E3Live blue algae you can handle.
Whether you’re seeking a pick-me-up after a long holiday, a night of partying, or just a crazy week packed full of lunch dates and lavish dinners – smoothies are a great way to hit reset and give your body a break from digesting heavy whole foods.
