Notes:

There is nothing wrong with indulging during the holidays with family and friends. It's all about balance! Starting with a balanced breakfast like this smoothie keeps you energized and prevents you from over-eating when dinner comes around.

  • Soy milk, almonds, and hemp seeds provide plant-based protein.
  • Soy milk, almonds, and chia seeds provide calcium.
  • Spinach, chia seeds, and molasses provide iron and the vitamin C from the orange helps you absorb it!
